I have quite a few pancake recipes I use but I have one basic recipe that I have memorized and use most often for its ability to customize. This one is based off of my basic greek yogurt pancakes but since I soak all of my grains now, I adapted the recipe to use kefir instead. Its much cheaper than greek yogurt and the soak gives the pancakes a much fluffier texture.
Use the same recipe for waffles but add 1 tbs coconut oil to the batter if you want a crispier waffle.
Soaked Pancake Recipe
makes 2 large servings
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup kefir
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cinnamon
shredded coconut, raisins, chopped apples, chopped nut or of choice, chocolate chips
Place oats in a blender and make oat flour. Add whole wheat flour and kefir. Mix until combined. Let sit overnight 12-18 hours.
In the morning put the rest of the ingredients in the blender and blend just until combined.
Cook on medium high heat on a greased griddle. Sprinkle add ins on top as soon as batter is put on the griddle so they have time to sink down, before you flip it.
