Cinnamon Oat Pancakes

I'm trying to be more healthy in 2009 and these pancakes are the perfect place to start. The wheat flour and oats make the pancakes hearty and healthy. I cooked the batter plain for my kids, but added the oat & almond topping for the grown ups, which made them over-the-top good!

2 c. flour
1/3 c. whole wheat flour
1/3 c. quick cooking oats
1/4 c. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
1 t. cinnamon
2 1/4 c. buttermilk
2 eggs, beaten
2 T. vegetable oil

Combine the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl combine the buttermilk, eggs and oil. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until just combined.
Drop batter on to hot skillet and fry pancakes on both sides.

***If desired, make topping mix (below) and sprinkle 2-3 tablespoons of the topping mix onto the skillet, then pour batter on top of that and sprinkle 2-3 more tablespoons of the topping on each pancake. This bakes a sweet, nutty topping into both sides of the pancake. You can also sprinkle more topping mix on top after the pancakes have been cooked.

1/4 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 c. rolled oats
1/4 c. chopped almonds or pecans
