Farmhouse B&B in Sonoma

My friend Jamie and her new husband stayed at the Farmhouse for a few days after their amazing wedding in Heildsburg, CA  she had these delicious oatmeal pankcakes there and asked them for the recipie, they gladly gave it to her, and she passed it to me.  I tried them last week and they are the best pancakes I have ever had! Try them, you will love!
