Step 1In large bowl, stir together oats and 2 cups (500 mL) buttermilk. Set aside for an hour or until buttermilk is absorbed and oats are soft. (To do this ahead of time, cover and refrigerate overnight.)
Step 2In small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Add to softened oatmeal.
Step 3Add remaining 1/2 cup (125 mL) buttermilk along with eggs, canola oil, honey or maple syrup. Stir with rubber spatula just until well combined.
Step 4Heat large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat and spray with canola oil cooking spray or brush with canola oil.
Step 5Cook about 1/2 cup (125 mL) batter at a time; spread it out with bottom of ladle or spoon (it will be thick) to about 4 inches (10 cm) in diameter. Turn heat down to medium-low and cook until edges appear dry and bubbles begin to break on surface. Using thin spatula, flip and cook until golden on other side.
Step 6Repeat with remaining batter. If you like, keep cooked pancakes warm in 200 ˚F (100 ˚C) oven while cooking the rest.
