Oat and Walnut Pancakes

Editing is hard work. Must start the day right:

Oat and Walnut Pancakes

1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
1/2 cup ground oatmeal (grind oats in a food processor until it is similar to flour, although it will be lumpier)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons oil
1 egg
1 cup buttermilk (you may need a little more to smooth it out).
handful of walnuts

Mix it all together. Let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes so that the whole grains soak up some of the buttermilk. Test the consistency. It will be slightly lumpier than regular pancake mix because of the whole grains, but if it’s too thick, add a little buttermilk and stir. Pour on a hot griddle. Sprinkle walnuts on uncooked side. When first side is done, flip and cook second side. Serve with butter and real maple syrup. A cup of hot tea or coffee would not be amiss either!

  2. They were way better than I expected. I had kind of given up on pancakes because they just lacked taste. Or they’d be flat instead of poofy like they should be. These were pretty dang awesome, much to my surprise!

  3. Here at the hotel we make them with sour cream and get raves for them. They don’t have them any more but Ihop used to sell Cream of Wheat pancakes that were awesome.

    I rarely make pancakes though, usually in the morning I’m too grumpy and uncoordinated to actually play with such dangerous things as spoons and bowls and such. Sometimes though, they make an excellent dinner on those cold days when you need a warm and comforting meal that is easy.

  4. Didn’t you leave out an essential ingredient? Like, maybe, say Walnuts?? They do sound interesting, but I’ll pass on the walnuts. Maybe with cranberries or dried cherries or maybe blueberries?

  5. I didn’t list them in the ingredients, but they are not added to the mix–they’re sprinkled on each pancake as you make them (see the directions). If you put them in the mix, do so after you stir all the other ingredients. The problem with mixing them in — they sink. So as you’re trying to spoon them onto the griddle, it’s hard to get them lined up evenly. You get these clumps. I thought about blueberries too, but I didn’t have any this morning!

  6. Since I’m allergic to nuts, it’s academic anyway. Do you know I read through the recipe twice and missed the sprinkled nuts both times?! Talk about distracted reading/commenting, LOL!! Sorry ’bout that!

  7. It’s your allergies. They saved you from yourself!

  8. I hopped on over to your blog today. A food processor is on my list of things to get this year. Good recipe.

  9. Hi Ann, and welcome! I use my food processor quite a bit. I have two–I actually like the one with less power! It’s good for blending salad dressing and doing the odd job. It won’t crush ice, but the thing is a workhorse. Had it for a long time. My new, all powerful, ice crusher one…I cut my finger on the super sharp blade first time I used it. Then one of the power settings stopped working after about a year. It’s NOISY. The thing sounds like a plane landing in the kitchen. I think ear protection is required to run the thing.
