Oatmeal Buttermilk Pancakes

Nothing says weekend brunch better than Buttermilk Pancakes.

Serve spread with apple butter or drizzled with pure maple syrup and sprinkle with chopped pecans, berries or sliced pears, if desired. No buttermilk? Use milk instead, replacing 1 tbsp (15 mL) with fresh lemon juice and letting stand for five minutes before using.
