Oatmeal Kamut Pancakes

I can not believe school is starting again. Summer always goes way to fast. I have had a great week. My husband and I went and picked up my daughter in Nauvoo IL. She had been serving a mission for the LDS Church for the last 18 months. It felt so good to hug her again. We have loved just spending time with her and the rest of our family. Family times are the best! It is a sweet time.

When we got back from our short trip, it was so nice to be back to my own healthy foods. :) My daughter that just got back wanted healthy pancakes. This is what I came up with. I love when pancakes are made with whole grains. They are so much more filling. The grain combination worked well.

It is a great recipe for those school morning breakfasts ahead. It is a nice healthy breakfast that will help you start your day on the right foot. Enjoy a new school year. :)

Ingredients: 2 C Kamut flour or whole grain flour
1 C Old fashioned oatmeal
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 T honey
3 eggs
5 T coconut oil or oil of your choice
3 C Buttermilk or 3 C almond milk 3T vinegar

Directions: 1. Measure all the dry ingredients and pour them into a bowl. Stir them around.

2. Beat the eggs and milk in a separate bowl. Then combine, honey, eggs, oil and milk with the dry ingredients.

3. Let the mixture sit about 5 to 10 min. It helps to soften the oatmeal. Then heat up your griddle. Pour on some oil. Spoon on the batter. Let cook until it bubbles and then turn over and cook on the other side.

4. Serve with fresh fruit, Jam or honey almond buttermilk syrup. Enjoy!
