I’ve mentioned before that I love weekends. Well, I love weekends for many many many reasons, but the same one I always mention is weekends mean PANCAKES. My hubby and I love them and can never get enough! I decided to try something different then usual. Different flavor and different ingredients, the main one being: Oat Bran. I talked about the health benefits and difference between oatmeal and oat bran in one of my first blog posts forever ago (please excuse the terrible photo I was a newbie).  I love oat bran and use it all the time. So why not in pancakes? I will say it was definitely a success!
