Cinnamon Oatmeal Pancake's drenched in Almond Buttermilk Syrup

These pancakes are yummy, healthy, and requires use of some food storage! The best thing about these pancakes is that it is a mix, so you can make it ahead of time and always have it on hand. The oats and cinnamon make these oh, so tasty. This recipe came from the Utah State University Cache County Extention Office. They offer classes and handouts about food storage recipes and recommendations for storing. You can find information on their website: http://extension.usu.edu. The Almond Buttermilk syrup gives you some yummy calories, but it's worth it! Enjoy!

Those look so yummy! I'm a huge fan of buttermilk and I make buttermilk syrup often-but I've never done it with the almond extract. I will definitely try that one soon!

Sara, these look delicious and they're healthy! My husband is a big breakfast fan, but he's also a health nut, so this recipe is perfect for us.
