You need a food processor for this recipe unless you have oat flour on hand and wish to chop up your nuts by hand
These pancakes are quite dense because of how they are made all in the food processor but so yummy, perfect for a weekend treat – full of goodness! They don’t make the prettiest picture but I promise they are worth it.
Pecan Oat Pancakes
¾ C whole oats
½ C all-purpose flour
¾ C pecans
1 T dark brown sugar
1 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
Pinch of kosher salt
½ C whole milk
½ whole yogurt
1 ½ T unsalted butter – melted; plus more chilled butter for griddle
Heat your pan (cast iron is good as you can leave it heating for a while to get to the right temperature without worrying about what’s happening to the coating of your non-stick) to a medium heat.
1) Grind your oats in your food processor until they turn into an oat flour.
2) Add all the other dry ingredients, the flour, pecans, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt and blend until just combined. The nuts will get nicely chopped during this process.
3) Add the remaining ingredients – milk, yogurt, egg and butter and blend until combined.
4) Add some butter to your pan and cook pancakes to your size and liking. Bubbles will appear when it’s time to flip.
Eat with some butter and real maple syrup! YUM.
