Cereal Pancakes

Adapted from Kellog's website of all places. I never even thought to go to a cereal website and it turns out they have a ton of stuff on there. Anyway, you an use whatever cereal you like but I used bran flakes. And not K's bran flakes but ones from Whole Foods. Doesn't matter; use what you like here.

1 C AP flour
2 T sugar
1 T baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 egg
2 C low-fat buttermilk plus extra on hand for later
2 T canola oil
1 C cereal of your choice (bran flakes really are good here)
1/2 C rolled oats

The night before, pour 2 C butter milk, cereal and oats into a bowl and stir well. Cover and refrigerate overnight. The next morning, whisk egg and oil together and mix with the cereal mixture. Add about 1/4 to 1/2 C buttermilk. Mixture will be thick.

In a separate bowl, combine remaining ingredients and stir well. Add to cereal mixture and stir just to combine. Allow to rest for 10 minutes before cooking.

Cook pancakes on a hot greased griddle until golden brown and delicious. I think made 10-12 pancakes using about 1/4 C batter each. The batter is thick so it's hard to be sure. If you wanted, you could sub out the AP flour for WW pastry flour or white-whole wheat flour but then I would not recommend using bran flakes as your cereal of choice or else you will pay for it. These are little fiber bombs (if you know what I mean) so proceed with caution.

I love pancakes and am always looking for new weird things to do with them--these look delicious! I'll have to try them. Thanks!
