These are not dainty pancakes, they are hearty, full of oats and tangy with buttermilk. I am a buttermilk fan; I ate two for my breakfast plain, and a third one with a drizzle of real maple syrup. This recipe uses information learned from the e-course I am taking, based on the Nourishing Traditions information book/cookbook. Although as I have stated time and time again, "everything old becomes new again" and that is very true regarding the information from the book and the course.These ways are not new, simply new again with another generation.
I am having a good time with the e-course, and the fun part comes with taking the new information and making food your family not only needs (healthy) but wants (tasty) to eat. I have a bit of additional information at the bottom of this post of what I will do next time to make this for the family or just myself.
adapted from just making noise
The night before:
2 c old fashion rolled oats
1/2 c whole wheat flour
3 c buttermilk
Stir together in a large bowl, making sure all ingredients are mixed and each piece is wet with buttermilk. Cover with a towel and let mingle overnight.
The next morning:
3 eggs, beaten well in a separate bowl
1/4 t salt
1 T cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
1 1/2 t baking powder
1 T oil or melted coconut oil or butter
2 T honey
1 t vanilla
1 c raisins - chopped very fine - optional
Prepare raisins as needed, set aside. Warm the honey gently add the coconut oil if using and stir to melt and combine. Beat honey mixture into the eggs along with the vanilla.
Bake in 1/4 c measures on a prepared griddle or frying pan, using additional butter or coconut oil to keep from sticking. Serve with maple syrup.
Makes approximately 18 cakes. Serve with butter, real maple syrup or homemade jam.
How I might change this recipe to better suit the taste desires of my family.
I would buzz the oats in the food processor to make a softer grain, about the same size/texture of cornmeal.
I would use 1 c buttermilk and 2 c regular milk.
I would increase the honey to 1/4 cup.
As always thanks for taking a moment to stop and say hello, I appreciate your time!
