Oatmeal & Ginger Pancakes

Pancakes have become a new weekend tradition at our house.  French Toast has always been our thing, re-visiting pancakes feels like a new adventure.  I added oatmeal to this recipe which makes me feel like it is more of a meal and ginger seems to be my February flavor of choice, why not give this combination a try?  It turned out to be a success and topping it off with honey butter was a nice complement to the ginger.
