This recipe is from my mother. My family has come to look forward to these when we visit. You can use this recipe in the waffle iron, too!
1. I prefer to use old-fashioned oats, not the quick cooking kind. It’s all about the texture. If you only have quick cooking oats in your pantry, they’ll work just fine.
2. If you don’t have buttermilk, you can use regular milk. Or, if you are feeling like conducting a minor science experiment, you can make your own buttermilk using regular milk by adding a tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice per cup of milk. For this recipe, you would need 2-1/2 tablespoons of vinegar or lemon juice and 2-1/2 cups of milk.
3. To reduce the fat content, substitute unsweetened applesauce for the oil. You won’t miss it. I swear.
4. If you really want to make these a true weekend splurge, add chocolate chips, nuts or fresh berries.
