@fify-- You know, you can add steel cut oats to pancake batter too. Just make sure that they're cooked.
I add a scoop of steel cut oats to most of my baked goods and also things like waffles and pancakes. I do this for the extra fiber. Steel cut oats are a complex carbohydrate and it contains vitamins, minerals and amino acids that regular flour does not have. So adding some to baked goods and other breakfast foods is a great way to increase nutrition content of foods. People struggling with constipation must also eat more steel cut oats.
