This morning I was devastated to find my Hearty Oat Maple Fusion waffles were gone. I really rely on these as my breakfast staple. They are filling and fast, and I don't get the crash and burn I would from pancakes or cereal. I decided I could whip up something similar (why this had never occurred to me before I do not know)... and I did. And, people, they are even better than the waffles... while not quite as fast they are just as filling. The kids loved them too.
Maple Oat Pancakes
1/2 c old fashioned oats
1 c water
1 c pancake/biscuit baking mix
2 T almond flour/meal (ground almonds)**
2 T maple syrup (real people)
In a good sized microwave safe bowl combine the oats and water. Cover with a lid or plate and microwave for 3 minutes.
When the oats are cooked stir in the baking mix, egg, almond meal and syrup and thoroughly combine. Cook as you would regular pancakes. Enjoy.

** You can get a one pound bag Almond Meal at Trader Joe's for just $3.49. That is an amazing deal! I love to add almond meal to cooked cereals and baked goods to amp up the nutritional content.
