No, really, this post is about pancakes. I tried an experiment this morning, and it turned out well, so here's the recipe:

Oatmeal-Apple-Raisin pancakes

1 cup flour
1/2 cup dry rolled oats
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup apple sauce
1 cup (or so) milk
1 egg
1 tbs brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
dash of cinnamon

Mix dry ingredients well, making sure the brown sugar is mixed in. Make a well in the middle, whisk up the egg. Add the apple sauce. Mix. Slowly add the 1 cup of the milk, while stirring. Add more to obtain proper consistency.

Stir as you pour or dip the batter, since the raisins and oatmeal may drop toward the bottom. Cook in a small quantity of butter or oil over medium heat. Flip pancakes when the popped bubbles remain open. Cook second side until lightly browned.

A post after my own heart. I will make these tomorrow morning, sans raisins. (One time when I was little my Dad told me that raisins were shriveled up bugs, and I haven't eaten one since. He also once told me that girls who get their ears pierced risk having their brains leak out. Guess who doesn't have pierced ears? And guess who's a total Daddy's girl?)
