For anyone who appreciates oatmeal as much as I do, there’s no doubt that what makes it so great is its versatility. It can satisfy people of all ages, whether you prefer the nostalgia of dinosaur eggs and apples and cinnamon oatmeal, or have the sophisticated palate for overnight and steel cut oats. These fall inspired oatmeal pancakes take a new spin on this staple breakfast food by combining pumpkin, white chocolate, and of course, oatmeal.
