Oat Cakes with Honey Butter

I'm ecstatic that I was given this recipe. Mr. A-rad, a fellow culinary student and blogger {The Crying Cook} made these for our Skills class during one of our breakfast days and they were a hit. I knew that if I made these for Tim that he would love them and I was right! I also put bananas in the oat cakes to add another depth of flavor.
