Strawberry Oatmeal Pancakes give a new dimension to breakfast. Full bodied, yet light buttermilk pancakes with the goodness of oats.
Welcome to another Recipe ReDux Challenge!
December 2017 – Theme
Grab a Book and Cook
We’re playing a little party game at the end of 2017: Grab your nearest cookbook and ReDux the recipe on page 201, 17, 217 – or any combination of the number ‘2017.’ (Of course, please don’t forget to credit the original recipe and change enough of the recipe to make it your very own.)
I searched through numerous cookbooks and page combinations to find a perfect fit for the theme. I hit the nail on the head with a recipe from the Breakfast Queen herself, Ina Pinkney.
I met Ina at a recent Food Wine Conference where she was promoting her latest book, Ina’s Kitchen, Memories and Recipes from the Breakfast Queen.
On page 170 I found a recipe for whole wheat oatmeal pancakes which I adapted.
I’m a big lover of pancakes and waffles. I just don’t indulge very often or I’d need a new fat pants wardrobe.
I like the added nutrition oatmeal brings to the table. Strawberries are no slouch at being good for you food either. Together they make a winning combo.
- 3/4 cup rolloed oats (not instant)
- 2 cup low-fat buttermilk
- 1/4 cup half and half
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 cups fresh strawberry slices, (I use Florida Strawberries)
- Combine oats, buttermilk and half and half. Refrigerate overnight.
- Next day, combine egg, oil, vanilla and brown sugar in a bowl. Set aside.
- In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt and baking soda.
- Whisk together egg mixture and oats mixture. Add flour mix.
- Cook on an oiled, preheated griddle or fry pan. Drop mixture by 1/4 cup/4-inch pancake.
- Add strawberries and cook until bubbles appear then flip. Continue to cook until golden brown and no batter appears.
