My last post was my supper yummy Homemade Pumpkin Puree recipe and now I am going to share with you one of my absolute favorite things to make with it…PUMPKIN OAT PANCAKES!!!!
These are seriously scrumptious! My kiddos and husband eat them as fast as they come off the griddle.
Not only do they taste ah-mazing they are also a bit healthier than regular wheat flour pancakes. In 1/3 cup regular white wheat flour there 1.32 grams fiber and 3.96 grams of protein. In 1/3 cup of oat flour there are 4 grams of fiber, and 7 grams of protein. So, much more fiber and protein, which is great for growing babies and a long day of working with horses!
Now you can buy oat flour already ground, but it is a bit more expensive. On Thrive Market the cost of Bob’s Red Mill Oat Flour 22 oz. is $4.45 or 20¢ an ounce. A bag of Bob’s Red Mill Rolled Oats 32 oz. is $3.95 or 12¢ an ounce. Over time that adds up, especially with the amount of oat flour we use in my house. Besides making out flour is super duper easy and it only takes a few minutes!
All you do is add a few cups of rolled oats to your blender. I have my super-de-duper Vitamix.
Then blend for 60 seconds until BAM! You now have a fine oat powder!
