Cranberry Orange Oat Pancakes...

I made these tonight (for breakfast in the morning) and now I regret it because they smell sooooooooooooooo yummy and I tasted one and they taste soooooooooooooooooo yummy, I want to eat them all right now! Instead I shall blog about them and go to bed, so I can hurry up and get up in the morning and eat them!

Cranberry Orange Oat Pancakes

1 cup Quaker old fashioned rolled oats
1 1/4 cup whole wheat pancake mix
3 Tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

mix dry ingredients in bowl set aside

2 large eggs
1 cup OJ (if you don't want the orange flavor then just replace this liquid with milk)
1/4 cup 2% milk or soy milk
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, or olive oil

mix wet ingredients

add wet into dry and stir until just combined

3/4 cup dried sweetened cranberries (or blueberries or any other fruit)

fold in fruit at the end

cook on hot griddle 1/4 cup of batter per pancake. when pancake edges are dry and bubbles appear in the middle, flip and cook for one to two more minutes!

YUM! These don't require much if any syrup because there is so much flavor in them. Nutritional info...

Nutritional Info Per Serving (2 pancakes):

259 cal, 6 g pro, 39 g carb, 4 g fiber, 9.5 g fat, 1.5 g sat fat, 53 mg chol, 298 mg sodium

I used quick cooking oats (not instant, quick cooking), soy milk, and frozen mixed berries (cran, blue and ras) because I didn't have any dried berries.

My house smells amazing right now! You seriously don't even need syrup for these, maybe a tiny sprinkle of powdered sugar if you just GOTTA, but they are soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo YUMMY! Try it, you'll love it!
