oat pancakes

pancakes for dinner again...i obviously can't get enough!  one of the best results from a pancake dinner...??? leftovers to freeze for future weekday breakfasts! oat pancakes

combine 1 cup whole wheat flour with 1 cup oat flour, 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar, 1 tablespoon baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt in a large bowl.  in a separate bowl, whisk together 2 cups buttermilk and 3 large eggs (lightly beaten), then add 1/3 cup melted butter (cooled slightly) and whisk again.

heat a skillet until medium-hot, brush with a bit of butter.  when you are ready to start cooking your pancakes, pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.

i like to make these pancakes a bit smaller than other ones i make, so i pour the batter 3 tablespoons at a time into small puddles on the skillet.  leave space, because they spread.  cook until the bottoms turn golden and the tops have set a bit, then using a large spatula, flip the pancakes over until the other side turns golden and the pancakes are cooked through.  they tend to cook quickly.

serve warm with butter and maple syrup.
