Apple Raisin Oatmeal Pancakes

Apple Raisin Oatmeal Pancakes
Comfort food for a cozy day

1/2 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup water
3/4 cup rice flour
2 eggs
2 tbs cup vegetable oil
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 apple chopped (or any fruit)

1 tbs vegetable oil
Frying pan

In a large bowl soak oatmeal in water for 20 minutes. Add rice flour (or any flour that you like) and stir. Add egg and vegetable oil and stir. Add Cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla extract and stir. Add water if too thick. Set aside. Put frying pan on medium heat, add oil. When surface is hot (oil spreads easily) scoop 1/4 cup of the mixture and pour into pan. Add a handful of apple slices and spread around surface. When bubbles start to appear (2-3 minutes) flip the pancake. Cook on second side for another 2-3 minutes.

Remove from heat. Cover while you cook more. Serve with maple syrup, honey or jam.
