Recipe of the week

Pancakes and waffles have been the craving recently after our long runs so my girlfriend and I are trying new recipes here and there. Luckily my mom sent me a cookbook with some of her recipes and in the front was a recipe for oatmeal pancakes…and let me tell you, it is good!

Ingredients:

  • 11/2 cups of oats
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 TBSP brown sugar (the ingredient)
  • 1 TBSP baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • butter for cooking

Recipe:

  1. In large bowl combine oats and milk, let stand for 5 minutes
  2. In large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon
  3. Whisk eggs and 1/4 cup of butter into the oat/milk mixture until blended
  4. Pour egg mixture over the flour mixture and stir until combined
  5. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat, brush with a layer of butter. (I have digressed here and have been using a small sized skillet which makes one good sized pancake each time, I have found it easier to cook the pancakes this way)
  6. Ladle a 1/4 cup of the mixture per pancake into the skillet (I have been using a soup ladle)
  7. Cook for 2-3 minutes until the bottom are golden and edges are dry
  8. Flip and cook for 1-2 minutes more
  9. Add more butter as needed and complete the process until the mixture is exhausted.

I have been cutting these numbers in half which normally produces 4 pancakes of a small plate size.

Load some berries and some maple syrup and you are good to go!

These pancakes taste pretty sweet and I believe that it’s the brown sugar, however it’s not overpowering and adds such a nice flavour. There are many options that you can try to modify the recipe, substitute whole wheat flower, add protein powder, chocolate chips or bananas.

I truly believe that the reward of these pancakes has been driving us through some of the longer runs, give them a try, let me know what you think!

Cheers!
