I’m always on the lookout for healthy breakfast recipes and ran across this one a while back; it’s turned into a favorite and is so easy!
4 cups white whole wheat flour
1 cup unbleached all purpose flour
3-1/2 cups old fashioned oats
3 tablespoon sugar
3 tablespoons baking powder
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 cup vegetable oil
Grind the oats in a food processor until chopped fine but not powder. Put the flour, oats and all other dry ingredients into a mixer with a paddle. Mix on slow speed and drizzle the vegetable oil into the bowl slowly while the mixer is running. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks at room temperature or indefinitely in the frig or freezer.
To make pancakes:
Whisk together 1 cup mix, 1 cup buttermilk (or half plain yogurt and half milk) and 1 large egg. Let stand for at least 20 minutes. Heat a lightly greased griddle to 350 (or medium high). Drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls. When edges look dry and bubbles come to the surface without breaking (about 2 minutes) turn over and finish cooking on the second side.
These are so yummy with pure maple syrup and/or any kind of fruit. I have added mini chocolate chips to the batter at my son’s request. You could add fruit to the batter such as peaches, raspberries, bananas, cheddar and apples (that sounds like a perfect fall breakfast), blueberries, you get the idea.
