Almond Oatmeal Pancakes

Like many of my other recipes this one is designed to serve 2, so make sure to double if you are making it for 4. I always say it is easier to double a recipe than to half it. If you do not have a griddle you can just use 2 skillets going side by side to make the cooking go faster. If you are not making this recipe vegan, feel free to add an egg to batter to help these stick together better while cooking.
