As promised, here is a favorite recipe. I adjusted this from a family fav that my kids call "Papa cakes." Every time we stay at my parent's house or cabin, my dad makes pancakes for my kids. They love them. I just tweaked the recipe to make them a bit more hearty.

Whole Wheat Oat Pancakes 
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups buttermilk or sour milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil or canola oil
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar, honey, or sugar
Combine dry ingredients. Combine wet ingredients. Mix to together. Adjust consistency with more buttermilk or flour. Top with fresh fruit. Enjoy!

Makes about 24 pancakes. So we eat left-overs on Sunday morning! = :)

*Note: You can just omit the eggs. The baking powder, soda, and buttermilk make them raise just fine. I usually cook a batch without eggs for my little one, then add a couple of eggs for extra protein for the big kids.

So I had to tell you that I made these pancakes and loved them. Put a big batch in the freezer to pull out for quick breakfasts. My parents were visiting one day and Ben wanted pancakes, enticing my sweet-toothed Dad to have some, too. My Mom, who is an incredible Southern cook, put her nose up when she learned they were made from not only whole wheat but also oat flour. But she tried, and she liked! Score :)
