Freezer Oatmeal Pancakes

These are my kids favorite pancakes. I usually make a bulk batch of pancakes or waffles to have on hand for the mornings, since my kids love them so much. And I love that I can sneak healthy ingredients in them! Not to mention, they are a much more frugal option over cereal.

Freezer Oatmeal Pancakes

4 cups spelt or whole wheat pastry flour
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup ground flax
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup unrefined sugar
1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
4 cups almond milk

First, combine your dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Next, whisk together all wet ingredients in a medium bowl.
Pour wet mixture into dry, and mix until combined. Try not to over mix. You may need more liquid depending on the flour you use. If the mixture is too thick, add a little water.

Heat a pancake griddle or other large pan over medium heat. When hot, drop small ladle fulls (about 1/3 cup) on to the pan. When bubbles appear, flip pancake over and cook for a few more minutes. This will go much faster if you have a large pancake griddle! Serve with your favorite fruit, maple syrup, peanut butter, etc..
