Since today is Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day) I thought I'd post my pancake recipe. Before I found this recipe, we were making the boxed mix and thought they were alright. Well, let's just say we'll never go back to the boxed mix! LOL!


1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
4 Tbsp vegetable oil (I usually omit this)
2 cups buttermilk (I use regular milk with a splash of vinegar)

In a small bowl, combine the oats, flours, baking soda, salt and sugar. In another small bowl, beat the eggs, oil, and buttermilk. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.

Pour batter onto greased hot griddle (we use olive oil in our pan). Flip when bubbles from around the edges. Cook until the second side is golden brown.


Okay, here's what we find works for us :-)

We have done these with 2 cups all-purpose flour, when we didn't have the whole wheat. They still turn out fine. We also add about 2 tsp of cinnamon in our batter. Delicious! Our pancakes are usually about 7-inch and we can make probably 8 pancakes with this recipe. Believe me, one pancake per person is plenty! They are very filling, especially when you top them with fruit or yogurt.
