Oat Bran Pancake Recipe
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1 cup oats
- 3/4 cup all purpose flour, sifted
- 1/4 cup oat bran, or, oat flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar, or equivalent in sugar substitute
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- Pour the milk over the oats and let them stand for 5 minutes. Sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
- Lightly stir the eggs into the oats mixture. Add the dry ingredients and butter, stirring until combined.
- Ladle in batches on to a greased or non-stick griddle or frying pan and cook until the tops are bubbly and the edges look cooked. Turn over and finish cooking the other side.
- The recipe as given makes about 10 medium size pancakes, but it can easily be multiplied to serve a larger group.
Tips and Variations:
- Try replacing 1/2 the flour with whole wheat flour for an even more nutritious recipe.
- These days, most of us don’t sift anything very much. Sifting involves pouring the ingredients through a mesh strainer. It is not essential to the recipe but does ensure a lighter pancake and that all ingredients are well mixed. I always sift whole wheat flour when I use it. I helps things to turn out nice and light, even with a heavier flour.
- Add blueberries or chopped banana for great flavor. It’s easiest to add them one by one to the batter on the pan. As it cooks on one side, dot the top with blueberries or small pieces of banana. They will cook into the pancake when you flip it over to cook on the other side.
