Oatmeal Pancakes

Oatmeal Pancakes

Since I’ve not been able to make class for a week (thanks to my job taking up all my time lately! Must need to figure out how to get out of there on time) I thought I’d post about my breakfast.

Oatmeal Pancakes: Adapted from Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone <– clicky the linky for the book info.


1 1/2 cups quick oats
2 cups lowfat Kefir (recipe called for buttermilk. I find kefir makes a nice substitution. If you don’t have either add 2 tbsps of lemon juice or vinegar to enough milk to make 2 cups)
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup flour
1/4 tsp grated nutmeg (go for freshly grated. You’ll thank me later)
1/2 tsp baking soda.


Stir the oats and kefir together and let stand for 20 minutes. Plug in the electric griddle (or what have you)

Beat the eggs, vanilla, maple syrup, and oil together. Combine flour, salt nutmeg and baking soda in a separate bowl. When 20 minutes are up, mix eggs mixture into oat mixture. Stir in flour mixture. cook over medium low heat until tops are covered with holes. Flip once.

Since there is a lot of moisture in these, you need to cook them slowly.

Serve with maple syrup, apple sauce, greek style yogurt, fruit etc.
