My Happy Place: Spiced Wholewheat Oatmeal Pancakes

Good morning everyone!  I’m uber happy to tell you all the wonderful Sophie is guest posting for you all today.  You may remember Sophie my co-host for the Unique Sweets Dessert Challenge and from this delicious Peanut Butter Mug Cake.  I’ll be over at My Happy Place today, so be sure to come find out why we’re both drooling over breakfast.

Greetings, fellow foodies! I’m Sophie and I’m the little runner fueled by sugar who blogs over at My Happy Place!  I’m so happy to be swapping blogs with Julie today. She is just the sweetest! 
 
 
Now on my blog, you’ll find an awful lot of sugar. One of my recent favorites is my Puppy Chow Popcorn… That stuff is dannn-gerrrr-ouss! But of course, {sadly} I eat stuff other than oatmeal cookies, pretzel butterscotch blondies, and popcorn drenched in chocolate and peanut butter all the live-long day. 
 
Breakfast is definitely my favorite meal of the day. Although most mornings I’m game for a boring bowl of cereal or if we get real fancy, scrambled eggs, I like to treat myself every once in awhile {read: pretty much every weekend.} and pancakes are usually my poison. 
 
 
Today’s pancakes are secretly healthy. Of course, we have to round things out a bit by drenching them in maple syrup and whipped cream. Hey, I’m all for a balanced diet! These pancakes have some great texture thanks to the whole wheat flour and oats, and they get a little spicy from the cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. 
 
Enjoy!
