Homemade Oatmeal Flapjacks aka Pancakes

If you are looking for a little different twist on breakfast then this old fashioned oatmeal flapjack recipe is a healthy twist to the traditional pancake recipe.

The oatmeal batter is easy to make and cooks up like the regular fluffy pancake but these are wonderfully filling and a little healthier than the standard pancake recipe. They are also delicious. There is a wonderful addition of flavour and texture with the addition of oatmeal into the recipe.

It all adds up to a healthier breakfast. Oatmeal is loaded with soluble fibre which helps to reduce bad cholesterol in the body and believe me when I say that it has rightfully earned its reputation as a health smart food. So add a little oatmeal into your breakfast plans to create a healthier as well as much more filling meal to start your day. These flapjacks will help you feel full much longer than the traditional flour pancake.
