This dish combines all the power of oatmeal and the charm of pancakes. Oatmeal is actually one of the best foods for lowering cholesterol and protecting the heart, which is very important in diabetes. And everyone knows about the benefits of blueberries, especially for vision.

How To Store The Leftovers?

Pancakes are fun and easy to make, but after you've finished enjoying your meal, you might be wondering what to do with the leftovers. Some people just keep them in the refrigerator for a day or two, but you may notice that as the pancakes sit, they become a little soggy. You can keep them overnight, but if you want to store them for a few days, you can freeze them. Freezing them will not harm them because they are already cooked. But you need to put them in a freezer bag or an airtight container to keep the moisture out.
