okay, i'm totally into this pancake thing now. ever since oatmeal got into my pancakes, i'm a changed person. we've been eating them every weekend since we came home from camp! i make a full batch on sunday night, and then pop them in the toaster several weekday mornings, too. i'm having fun with it. my latest thing is homemade blueberry 'syrup' on top, which is not really a syrup at all, but rather a coulis. i looked it up. (noun: a thin fruit puree, used as a sauce.)


revised oatmeal pancakes + blueberry coulis

1 cup rolled oats
1 cup oat flour (grind 1.5 cups rolled oats in a coffee mill/blender to make)
OR 1 cup whole wheat flour, instead of oat flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 T. milled flax
1 1/2 cups buttermilk (i've been using rice milk + 2 tsp. vinegar)
2 beaten eggs
1 to 2 tsp. pure vanilla
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce

sift together dry ingredients. add buttermilk, eggs, vanilla, and applesauce, mix until well combined. let sit for a few minutes while griddle heats, this well help the oats soften a bit. pour 1/4 cup batter onto a greased griddle, flipping after bubbles appear. makes about 16 medium size pancakes.


blueberry coulis

frozen blueberries
honey or agave nectar

no measurements required for this. just alter to your tastes. toss blueberries in the blender with a splash of water. pulse until smooth. add a teaspoon or two of honey to sweeten, if desired. store in a glass container in the fridge. (blueberries like to stain, so be sure to use glass!)

ps. can you tell i'm obsessed with my new supply of quilted glass jars? i love them! i use them to store everything. so you'll probably be seeing a lot more of them.

Is it irresponsible to leave work to go home and make pancakes? I need to start reading your posts at home instead of at work because you always make me hungry!

Thanks so much for your comment love today. I feel like a true rock star when I see your comments! You made my day!

I am going to have to try those! They look delicious! I have a bunch of quilted glass jars and use them to store everything too, they are my fave!!

Aunt Kayleen said...

Sounds yummy! What do you recommend using to grind your oats into flour? (Did I word that right?)

Mom Judy said...

Those look like the perfect pancakes and love the idea of pureed fruit for a topping.

These look awesome! So, do you freeze them afterwards or just keep them in the fridge? I had no idea you could have leftover pancakes!

yum! i make some for our pancakes when we cook 'em (or if we run out of syrup... we never seem to be short of fruit.. i did raspberries last weekend!) :) may have to do the rolled oats. i'm a fan of flax in the batter, so that is YUM!

i'm so glad you posted your pancake recipe. i saw pics of the beauties a few posts ago and thought they looked amazing! i'm so glad you use rice milk too. i'm anxious to try this recipe as well as the "syrup".

It's nice that you keep posting these lovely recipes. Then I don't have to come up with my own ideas for dinner. :)

I have been told by the doctor to cut out sugar and junk food and these were perfect. So yummy! Thanks.
