Oatmeal & Whole Wheat Sourdough Pancakes

It seems that no matter how I tweak Yumarama’s World’s Best Pancakes Recipe, I can’t go wrong.  It really does make the world’s best pancakes… and this being my week of flatbreads, I’d like to share my version of them with you.  My friend Louise‘s family has a sugar bush, and I am lucky enough to get their gorgeous Quebec maple syrup.  I’m always looking for an excuse to eat it, and these pancakes fit the bill as the perfect accompaniment!

Oatmeal & Whole Wheat Sourdough Pancakes

Adapted from Yumarama’s World’s Best Pancakes Recipe, Serves 2 hungry people

Dry Ingredients:

  • 1/4 c. oats
  • 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

Wet Ingredients:

  • 3/4 c. milk (skim, soy, almond, etc.)
  • 1/2 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 c. extra sourdough starter (I used my liquid white flour levain, Snowy, here)

For Cooking:

  • 2 Tbsp. melted butter, or vegetable oil

Sift dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl.  In a separate bowl, combine wet ingredients and add to dry ingredients.  Let batter rest for 10 minutes.

Add melted butter or oil to batter.  Pour batter in a hot non-stick pan (I like mine about 3″ in diameter), once the surface has small bubbles, flip the pancakes over and continue to cook until the pancakes are cooked through.

Serve with maple syrup, and fresh fruit.  (I must admit to frying up a few banana slices in a bit of butter for a morning treat).

    Those are great Lindsay! I made my first sourdough pancakes this morning and oh yum! I used a “homemade pancake mix” I found on the Whole Foods website as my dry ingredients. That was such a wonderful Sunday morning breakfast…
