Make these sweetheart oat pancakes for someone you love.
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cups oat flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 large eggs
2 cups buttermilk, well shaken
3 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1 tbsp honey
1 cup maple syrup
2 cups frozen blueberries, or raspberries
Combine flours, baking soda and salt in a large bowl and whisk until fully mixed.
Combine eggs, buttermilk, butter and honey in a bowl and whisk until uniform.
Pour buttermilk mixture over flour mixture and whisk until all dry ingredients are absorbed (do not over-mix). Batter should be just a little lumpy.
Heat a non-stick griddle or large frying pan on medium heat. Use a turkey baster or a squeeze bottle to suck up batter and squeeze out to make heart-shaped pancakes in the pan. Remember that the first designs you make will be the darkest, and you can use a spoonful of batter to fill in the middles.
After about 2 min (or when bubbles appear in the batter), flip pancakes and cook about 1 min longer. Serve with Berry Syrup.
