As you can tell from my site, a variety of pancake recipes are featured. One that is my grandson's favorite and a 'must-make' when I'm with them; the others are adapted from other recipes. This one I found on the UC Davis Integrative Medicine site, and with just a few tweaks, this has become my all time favorite. The pancakes are light, not at all soggy and wonderfully tasty. I had a friend for breakfast and she raved! Pancake house - you're in the dark!!! Let me know what you think.

This recipe makes anywhere from 12 - 15 pancakes, depending on size. Some prefer dollar size pancakes; others the he-man size. Your choice! Recipe can be halved!

  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk or other favorite non-dairy milk
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour (I often do half WWPF and half spelt; you can also use a gluten free flour.)
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 1 T maple syrup
  • 1T orange juice (or you can use 2 T maple syrup)
  • 2 T baking powder
  • 2 T ground flaxseed meal
  • zest from one large orange
  • 1/2 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • Place the rolled oats into high speed blender or food processor until it becomes flour like.
  • To the oat flour add the wheat flour, baking powder, flaxmeal and orange rind into blender and pulse to combine.
  • Then add the mashed banana, almond milk, maple syrup/orange juice combination, and mix again.
  • When batter is mixed, gently fold in the blueberries, if using.

Heat your favorite griddle and enjoy. What's easy is that all the ingredients are mixed in blender so clean-up is easy.
