hearty pancakes

My cooking repertoire reached its limit with 
frozen pizzas & nuked veggies [not our usual].
We were without a stove/oven for nearly two weeks due to the move,
so I was anxious to get cooking once our stove was finally installed.
Although relying on a microwave & charcoal grill 
was something my husband & I found a creative challenge at first, 
we were excited to start cooking again. 
The kitchen is still under construction 
[can't wait to share some before & after pics], so
 our food selection was somewhat limited.
So, what did I cook once the stove was hooked up?
Pancakes [and eggs]...for dinner!
I found this recipe & modified based on
what I already had in the kitchen.
It turned out so well [I could tell even from the first ones off
the griddle], I just had to share!
ingredients
1 cup quick cooking regular rolled oats
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 cup dry non-fat milk powder
1 1/4 teaspoons salt, divided
1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup water
directions
Preheat a lightly greased griddle over medium low heat.
In a large bowl, mix quick cooking oats, flour, 
whole wheat flour, brown sugar, baking powder, dry milk powder
salt, cinnamon and cream of tartar.
In a small bowl, beat together vegetable oil and eggs. 
Pour into the oats mixture, alternating with water, 
and mix thoroughly, creating a batter.
Pour batter, 1/4 cup at a time, onto the prepared griddle. 
Cook on both sides until golden brown, 
flipping when the surface begins to bubble.
It made more than enough for my husband & I to eat for dinner,
about 15-16 flapjacks [maybe 5" in diameter].
