Pumpkin-Oat Pancakes ~ posted by Julie in AK

Here is our hands-down, all-time favorite pancake recipe. The cook book has long since fallen apart, but is The Good Food Book by Jane Brody. If you use organic pumpkin, it will be even better. (Do a side by side taste test of organic pumpkin puree and regular. The regular has no taste!)

PUMPKIN-OAT PANCAKES (4 servings)

“wet” ingredients:
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 cup buttermilk
1 egg white
1 whole egg
1 T. oil
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/3 cup lowfat or skim milk

“dry” ingredients:
1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
2 T. wheat germ
1 T. sugar (or to taste)
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. cinnamon

1. In a large bowl, combine the oats and buttermilk, and let the mixture stand for about 15 minutes to soften.

2. Add the remaining “wet” ingredients, blending well.

3. In a small bowl, combine all the dry ingredients. Stir them into the wet ingredients, mixing them until the batter is fairly smooth. Add more milk if the batter is too thick.

4. For each pancake, place about 3 tablespoons batter on a hot, lightly greased griddle. Flip the pancakes when their undersides are golden brown and the tops begin to bubble.

Dana’s NOTE: I used fresh cooked pumpkin with this came out great. I left out the raisins. I needed to cook it about 28 minutes. The muffin cups were filled very high.

Oatmeal Muffins II ~ posted by mom2abcd

1 cup rolled oats
1 cup buttermilk (we used skim milk)
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup applesauce
1 egg
(we added 1 t. cinnamon, 1/2 t. nutmeg, 1 t. vanilla)

DIRECTIONS: Place oats in a small bowl, pour in buttermilk. Let sit for two hours at room temperature (we let the quickoats soak for 1 hour). Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners (they’ll stick to paper, grease the cups). In a large bowl, stir together whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda and brown sugar (and spices). Stir in oat/buttermilk mixture, applesauce and egg; mix well. Pour batter into prepared muffin cups. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes (20 minutes was plenty!), until a toothpick inserted into center of muffin comes out clean.

(They are sweet, moist, and YUMMY! My kids love them too).
