Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes

I am a HUGE fan of . I just love her recipes and they are usually tasty and pretty healthy too. She also has a healthy love for ROLLS, which I also share. I have tried several of her roll recipes and use them all of the time. I will put them here soon.. Recently, I was looking for a bread recipe on her website (which I didn't find) but I did find THIS! It is a pancake mix for Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes! I liked the good ingredients and the fact that it can be stored to make yummy healthy pancakes at a later time! Try it!

Pancake Mix

*Makes 10 cups of dry mix

3 1/2 cups rolled (quick) oats
3 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups all-purpose flour
4 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons baking powder
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 cup vegetable oil

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a mixer with a paddle (or by hand). With mixer on slow speed (or gently by hand), drizzle the vegetable oil into the bowl slowly while the mixer is running. When all the oil has been added, stop the mixer and squeeze a clump of mix in your hand. If it stays together, it is just right. If it is still crumbly, add another tablespoon of oil at a time until the consistency is correct (I've never had to add additional oil). Store in an airtight container for up to two weeks at room temperature or indefinitely in the refrigerator or freezer.

To make the pancakes: whisk together 1 cup of mix, 1 cup buttermilk (a combination of half plain yogurt and half milk will also work), and 1 egg. The mixture may seem thin at first but the oats will soak up the milk as it stands while the griddle preheats. Heat a griddle and drop the batter onto it. When the edges look dry and bubbles come to the surface and don't break, turn the pancake over to finish cooking on the second side. As a side note, buttermilk can be frozen indefinitely for future batches of pancakes, so it's worth keeping it around!

*1 cup of mix will make about 6-7 4-inch pancakes.

**Lindsey's notes: I added 1 more tablespoon of sugar, because that is just the way I am! I also used ground hard red wheat that I had ground in my vitamix. However, I will probably use the store bought stuff from now on (finer mill). Everyone loved them, even though they were a little more crunchy from the vitamix mill and since I didn't have buttermilk on hand, I made my own by adding a little vinegar to my skim milk and let it sit for 5 minutes. VOILA!
