These are a wonderful variation from the typical pancake. And you can make them in a jiffy with this easy mix you make ahead.
4 cups old-fashioned oats
2 cups all-purpose flour (or 3 cups wheat and 1 cup white)
2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 cup packed brown sugar (I usually do 2/3 - 3/4 cup)
1 cup instant nonfat dry milk
3 tablespoons baking powder
2 tablespoons cinnamon
5 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/3 cup canola oil (I have substituted half of this with unsweetened applesauce)
2 cups pancake mix
1 cup water
1. Mix all ingredients together well. Store in a sealed gallon-size plastic storage bag or airtight container. Yield: 10 cups of pancake mix.
2. To make pancakes, beat eggs in a large bowl. Gradually beat in oil. Alternately add pancake mix and water to mixture. Blend well. Preheat and oil griddle. Pour 1/3 cup batter per pancake onto griddle. Pour 1/3 cup batter per pancake onto griddle. Cook until bubbles form around edges, turn and continue to cook until done. Yield: about 10 pancakes.
This makes up to five batches of pancakes and is great to give as a gift along with a printed recipe.
