Oatmeal Apple Pancakes

Oatmeal Apple Pancakes

Nothing warms up a cold morning like hot homemade pancakes with fresh butter and pure maple syrup… especially when I've just returned home with a jug of my parents' own homemade syrup! These oatmeal apple pancakes are my favourites — they're ridiculously easy to make, and they make a perfect start to a weekend morning. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
  • 3/4 cups rolled or steel-cut oats
  • 1/2 cups spelt or all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/3 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 small apple, diced
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon honey
Instructions:
  • In a mixing bowl, stir the oats and flour into the yogurt and water and let stand at room temperature overnight. In the morning when you're ready to make the pancakes, stir in the baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and apple.

  • In a separate bowl, beat the eggs, melted butter and honey. Pour over the oat and flour mixture and mix well.

  • Lightly butter a large cast-iron skillet or frying pan and warm up on medium-low heat. At the same time, preheat an oven to 175°.

  • Drop in a few tablespoonfulls of the batter for each pancake and fry for 2 to 3 minutes before turning over and frying on the other side until the pancakes are golden brown on both sides. Remove from the pan and place on a plate in the oven to keep warm until all the batter has been used.

  • Serve the pancakes warm with warm maple syrup, a dab of butter and any fresh fruit toppings that tickle your fancy.

Makes 10 to 12 five-inch pancakes

I leave the baking powder out of my version of this recipe. I don't think it's necessary with the overnight soak - but I've never done a side by side comparison.

The addition/substitution (instead of the apple) of fresh or frozen blueberries is awesome as well.
