Oats & Honey Pancakes

This morning I tried a new recipe for pancakes, this is my first attempt at GF pancakes so I was excited to try them. I have that box of GF Oats that I've been trying to use up so I thought I'd give this recipe a try. I can't remember who's blog I got this from so if you read this and it's yours give me a shout so I can give you credit for it!

I've determined after making the sesame chicken last week and these pancakes that I do not like honey. At all. So going forward if there's honey in the recipe I will use sugar instead. I know it's healthier but I just don't like it. The crunch of the oats in these pancakes was not something I'm used to but I didn't mind it so much. I like the added nutrition. Here's the recipe and some photos.

Oats and Honey Pancakes

3/4 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup gluten free oats
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
2 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp canola oil
1/2 cup milk (I used lactaid skim milk)

Whisk together all the dry ingredients in one bowl.
In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, honey and oil. Then whisk in the milk.
Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.

Then you will have a bowl of this:
Oatmeal Pancakes 002

When you're almost done with the mix, start preheating your skillet.
When it's ready, pour in your mix:
Oatmeal Pancakes 004
I put some promise spread in the pan, but since it's non-stick I didn't really need it and it just ended up burning, I also had the pan too hot:
Oatmeal Pancakes 008
So I had another smaller pan on hand and I decided to use it to cook up some non-burnt pancakes:
Oatmeal Pancakes 010
And finally, the finished product:
Oatmeal Pancakes 009
Served on my Gramma's Pfalzgraff dishes of course!

They were yummy, accept for the hint of honey flavor, and I'll get used to the oatmeal crunch. But I think next time I'll just try regular pancakes. Now I'm off to get ready to go to another wedding! Have a great weekend everyone!

Yum! I'm always just using the Arrowhead Mills all purpose GF flour to make pancakes (recipe on the box) and then adding things like flax seed meal for fiber and 3/4 cup of applesauce, 2 tsp. cinnamon, a dash of sugar. Or frozen berries.

I make big batches and freeze them in twos, then toss them in the toaster in the morning and spread almond or peanut butter between them to eat on my way to work.

P.S. I love honey, but I hated it with a passion up until a year ago!

Yeah I did cook and freeze the rest of this batter for later use and I think I will toast them up and see how they are re-heated. I think Stop & Shop carries Arrowhead Mills GF Flour, I'll have to check it out. actually, I should finish up the brown and white rice flours that I have on hand first. But I use those for my brownies... I need to make some of those. yum.
