1 c quick-cooking rolled oats
1-1/2 c all-purpose flour
1 T baking powder
1/2 t cinnamon
1/4 t salt
2 T brown sugar
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1-1/2 c milk
6 T butter, melted

  1. Stir all dry ingredients together and set aside.
  2. Stir together eggs, milk and butter.

If you make too many, just freeze the leftovers in Zipper bags. They thaw beautifully, retaining their original texture.
