What is this, you say, a pancake blog? I know. I am a little obsessed. I do love pancakes. They are such a simple pleasure. And you know I love my grains. This recipe is a great compliment to the Banana Oat Pancakes. On days you don't have a ripe banana, try these. They are very much like your standard wheat pancake, but taste like a bowl of oatmeal. Very yummy. The texture is solid, like a wheat pancake and could stand up to incorporating some blueberries. Of course, if you are gluten-free,make sure your oat flour and oats are gluten free. I make my oat flour in the processor with old-fashioned oats.

makes 10-12 pancakes

 3/4 cup oat four
3/4 cup quick rolled oats
2 eggs beaten with a fork until bubbly
1 T. melted coconut oil, plus more for frying
1/2 t. salt
2 t. baking powder
2 T. sugar
1 cup milk

In a small saucepan (or a microwave safe dish in the micro) heat milk till hot; stir in oats; let stand for 5 minutes.

In a mixing bowl combine oat flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add oat-milk mixture.

In a small bowl combine eggs and coconut oil; add all at once to flour-oat mixture, stirring just till combined.

  For each pancake, pour about 1/4 cup of the batter onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet. Cook till golden brown, turning to cook other side when pancake has a bubbly surface and slightly dry edges.

It's just a vehicle for the best part: real syrup and butter. :-)

Ill definitely be trying these! And I think ill try the oil on top instead of butter as well. I'm always looking for ways to use more coconut oil so if you have any hints, do tell!

So what's the story with coconut oil? Is it a good thing? I just failed the cholesterol test in every possible way so I'm going to have to make some diet changes around here.

As my Granny would have said, "These sound good enough to eat!" Thanks for posting, Barbara.
