A Leftover Oatmeal Solution

These breakfast "cookies" have the perfect crunch to them, and are packed full of nutritious breakfasty things. I whipped them up on a whim the other day, and was pleased with the results. Whether you enjoy them as a breakfast treat or a late night snack, they are sure to hit the spot. They are the breakfast of champions!

I made this card for my amazing friend Augustine who really is a champion. (They should put her on a cereal box.) She competed in the state wide competition for throwing the discus, and made second place. I am just amazed. I sent her this card to congratulate her. It flips open on both sides to reveal the message.

These pancakes are perfect for using up any leftover oatmeal you may have sitting around. (Wasting that leftover oatmeal is unacceptable and punishable by death.) I actually made oatmeal and cooled it off especially for this recipe because there is never any leftover oatmeal in any pot at my house. Enjoy!

Apple Cinnamon Leftover Oatmeal Pancakes
1 cup cooked oatmeal, cooled
¼ cup flour
3 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp oil
½ tsp ground cinnamon
1 egg

Mix the flour, salt, brown sugar, cinnamon, and baking powder together. Add it in with the cooked oatmeal along with the oil, egg, and juice. Preheat a nonstick pancake pan to medium low heat. Scoop out a few tbsp of the batter onto the pan and cook until the top starts to bubble and the bottom is dry. Flip and cook the other side until lightly browned.
