These Easy Swedish Oatmeal Pancakes are great for a quick breakfast or supper. Truth be told, I like them as a dessert with a dollop of peanut butter or your favorite preserves.
Our family could eat breakfast foods for breakfast, lunch or supper. And these Easy Swedish Oatmeal Pancakes can be the main dish at any meal.
The inspiration for this recipe came from one of those great cookbooks that we all have purchased (or have sold) as a fundraiser. They are always filled with tried and true recipes from real cooks. I don’t think I have ever had a bad experience with a recipe from this type of cookbook.
While butter and syrup may be the traditional topping, we like to add a layer of peanut butter on the bottom pancake, top with another pancake then add syrup.
And if you want to go over the top, then reach for a tub of Jif Whipped Peanut Butter and Chocolate Spread.
