Would you like to lose some weight -- in your baking, that is? This one secret ingredient (that you likely already have in your kitchen) is not only inexpensive and healthy, it'll also add a bit of "cloud" to your biscuits and pancakes!
And that ingredient is ... Oatmeal!
Yep, I know what you're thinking ... just give me a moment and trust me on this.
For instance, to make super light pancakes, I'll use normal, non-instant, oatmeal. I'll prepare a 1 to 1 1/2 serving size portion, usually in microwave.
Next, add your normal pancake ingredients to oatmeal. I normally add milk first to cool down oatmeal (don't want eggs to cook!). You may notice that batter is a little frothy -- especially if you let it sit a bit. That's oatmeals extra viscosity coming into play.
Cook pancakes just like you normally do. They'll look same and taste same (no oatmeal taste). However, they'll rise up nice, light, and fluffy!
To make super light biscuits, you'll alter your normal biscuit recipt just a tiny bit. Prepare oatmeal as usual -- but, since prepared oatmeal is fairly liquid, it'll make your biscuit dough into a batter ... IF you add normal amount of milk!
