Oatmeal Pecan Pancakes


Guest post from Brigette Shevy

Valentine’s Day is an all-day celebration at our house! My children spend hours making table and wall decorations, writing homemade cards, and dreaming up red-and-pink-themed menus (not all of which are actually usable/edible!).

We like to start the day off with a special breakfast – and these hearty, filling pancakes are always a hit! They are fairly simple to make, but the toasted pecans add that “special” factor. You could even make them heart-shaped if you’re feeling extra ambitious! Serve them with a side of red berries to incorporate the Valentine’s color scheme.

The recipe is adapted from my mother-in-law, and is one my husband especially enjoys. These pancakes are a little bit healthier and a whole lot heartier than traditional pancakes, making them especially yummy during the cold winter months.

For my pancake-loving family, nothing says “I love you” like waking up to a big plate of Oatmeal Pecan Pancakes, served with lots of butter and real maple syrup! 

I hope your family loves these delicious pancakes as much as we do!
