Healthy Pancake Recipe

You'll say: "why would I want a healthy pancake recipe? Pancakes are supposed to be wonderfully decadent and indulgent. Not necessarily healthy." Well, these are; both.

They are wonderfully healthy by including rolled oats and potentially gluten-free, but their texture is soft and fluffy and delectable because of the buttermilk and other standard ingredients. They will warm your tummy and your soul on one of these dreadful, grey winter mornings (or evenings, who knows?).

Make this batch for 4 hungry souls.

Soak 2 cups of rolled oats in 2 cups of buttermilk, preferably over night but at least several hours.

Then add, 2 eggs (lightly beaten) and 1/4 cup melted grass-fed organic butter. In a separate bowl mix 1/2 cup of all purpose flour (or for gluten-free and some nutty crunch, buckwheat flour), 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 1 teaspoon of each baking soda and baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. If you like Sweden as much as I do, you will have encountered their love for everything cardamom. It's a nice replacement for the cinnamon or you can add both.

Mix dry ingredients with wet ingredients. The result will be a very thick, sticky dough. Pan fry the pancakes and keep the ones that are ready warm in the oven.

Enjoy them with maple syrup, or honey, frozen fruit heated up (as seen in the picture).

Tell me what you think in the comments.
