Indulge your sweet tooth with this easy-to-make pancake recipe, courtesy of Joy Wilson — genius blogger behind Joy the Baker. It’s based on the flavors of a classic oatmeal raisin cookie.
First, put preheat your oven to 200 degrees F. That way, you can keep the cooked pancakes warm in the oven until you finish the entire batch.
Then, in a large bowl, whisk together 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour, ¾ cups old-fashioned oats, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon of salt, ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon, and a big pinch of freshly ground nutmeg.
In a separate bowl, whisk together 2 large eggs, 2 cups of buttermilk, 1 teaspoon of pure maple syrup, and 1 stick of melted butter. Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour and stir until just combined. Then, stir in the raisins and let the batter stand for 5 minutes.
Heat a lightly buttered griddle over medium-high heat. Then, cook the pancake batter about 2 minutes on each side, flipping once the edges start to brown and the surface is bubbly.
Serve these delicious pancakes with maple syrup, a drizzle of melted cream cheese frosting and a sprinkle of cinnamon, or sliced bananas and chopped pecans.
