Apple Oat Pancakes

These are hearty pancakes.  Chuck Norris pancakes.  Navy Seal pancakes.  They're also the favorite food of my baby boy. Because, well, they are pancakes after all.

We had a brunch for my son's first birthday that started with a hefty stack these and two quiches, and ended with that Sugar-Free Banana Cake I posted a while back. The recipe is loosely adapted from one in the More-With-Less Cookbook and is endlessly versatile.  Don't have yogurt?  Use buttermilk, milk + 1 T. vinegar, or kefir.  Don't have oat flour?  Go ahead and use all whole wheat or AP, or even soy flour and wheat germ.

I know I should have my hand slapped for posting an apple recipe in May.  I'm sorry.  I really am.  You'll forgive me sometime in between pouring the batter on the griddle and licking the syrup off your plate.



Apple Oat Pancakes

Combine in a bowl and whisk together:
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1 c. plain yogurt
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 T. oil
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
Add and mix only until moistened:
  • 1 c. AP flour
  • 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 c. oat flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt 
Gently stir in:
  • 1/3 c. rolled oats 
  • 1 large apple, cored, peeled and diced small

Cook on a lightly greased skillet or griddle over medium heat.  Serve warm with syrup, peanut butter, or vanilla yogurt and applesauce.  Leftovers freeze & reheat well in the toaster.

Please excuse the dreary picture.  The sun has forsaken us this week.

Can't wait to try this! It'll be easily adapted to my low-gluten flours, which tend to be hearty as well :)
