Author Notes

Sometimes I find myself short on maple syrup, but my family is requesting pancakes for breakfast (or sometimes lunch... toddlers). Honey is always abundant in my pantry. This pancake recipe is an easy, delicious alternative for those days when the maple syrup has run dry. —Erin Catlin

Are you using old fashioned or instant oats for this recipe? I'm assuming old fashioned but I want to make sure.

Sorry about that! Yes, old fashioned oats.

I forgot I'd saved this recipe and found it again tonight when my son asked for pancakes for supper. They turned out great! I didn't try the honey butter syrup because we have tons of maple syrup. I love that this recipe only makes a small batch - a great thing when my son is the only one that is hungry for supper! Also, the pancakes aren't overly sweet so the flavor of the buttermilk really shines.
