Recently, I tried certified gluten-free without any reaction. I had forgotten how yummy and wholesome oats can be. Somehow, I wanted to include them into these pancakes. Buckwheat tends to be another wholesome, rich favorite grain of mine. Put them together with a neutral whole grain flour like brown rice. And the outcome is a very wholesome pancake. How can I make this better? Bananas and pecans with a touch of cinnamon and nutmeg.
- 100 g (1 cup) GF quick cooking oats
- 100 g (2/3 cup) brown rice flour
- 40 g (1/4 cup) buckwheat flour
- 35 g (3 tablespoons) sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 15 g (1 tablespoon) baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 190 g (3/4 cup) milk
- 60 g (1/2 stick) butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 large eggs
- 1 banana, diced fine
- 1/2 cup pecan pieces
Make sure all ingredients are at room temperature. Using a small food processor, grind together the oats with the granulated sugar until fine. Put into large mixing bowl. Scale/measure all the other dry ingredients and add into large mixing bowl. Mix well with a large spoon/spatula. In a large pouring cup or medium bowl, heat the milk with the butter in the microwave for 1 minute until the butter is liquid. Stir and add in the vanilla, followed by the eggs. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients. Add in the bananas and pecans. Mix until just combined.
Using a ladle or scooper, measure portions of batter onto a greased preheated griddle or large fry pan (medium heat/375F), allowing space for spreading and flipping. Fry the pancakes until the tops are full of bubbles and begin to look dry, and the bottoms are golden brown. Turn and brown the other side. Can hold in a warm oven (200F) until the whole batch is cooked.
Serve hot, accompanied by butter, maple syrup, fresh berries, and bacon (best from your local butcher.) Um, bacon makes everything better.
Makes about 15 pancakes. Leftovers can be frozen spread out on a sheet, then put into airtight container. Reheat as needed.
