Nutty Whole Grain Pancakes

These pancakes are SO yummy & pretty darn healthy too. Yes, they are similar to IHOP's "Harvest Grain N' Nut Pancakes"....only better.

1 1/2 c oats/oatmeal
1 1/2 c whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2.5 c buttermilk (I use 1 cube of melted butter added to 2 cups of 2% milk)
1/4 c canola oil (you can use regular veg oil...I can't due to soy allergies)
2 eggs
1/4 c sugar
3-4 Tbsp almonds (finely chopped)
3-4 Tbsp walnuts or pecans (finely chopped)

Grind oats/oatmeal & nuts to "flour" in blender or food processor.
Put all dry ingredients in 1 bowl & mix.
Put all wet ingredients in 1 bowl & mix.
Blend wet ingredients into dry ingredients.

Scoop batter by 1/4-1/3c portions onto a hot griddle (lightly greased)
Cook 1-3 minutes per side till desired done-ness.
Makes about 12 pancakes

NOTE: These are slightly heavy and VERY filling. (My hubby only eats 3 of these and is FULL.) I like to serve them with fresh fruit syrup, fresh fruit, applesauce or just butter.
