another bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, cinnamon and
salt; add to oat mixture and stir just unitl moistened.  If batter seems
too thick , add more buttermilk (up to 3 tblsp.). 

Preheat a griddle or large frying pan over medium heat; grease lightly.
Spoon batter, about 1/3 cup for each cake, onto griddle; spread batter out
to make 4-inch circles.  Cook until tops are bubbly and appear dry; turn
and cook other sides until browned.  Makes about 1 1/2 dozen pancakes.
