multigrain pancakes

multigrain pancakesIt’s official. Winter has come to Bozeman. In the last two days, we have gotten about 6-8 inches of snow and the low for the day is zero degrees (Fahrenheit not Celsius). Brrr! That’s cold, even for here, for this time of year. The days of riding my bike across town to work have come to a close for the season and the days of shoveling snow from the driveway (which I somehow derive great pleasure from) have begun. Izzy loves it too. She runs around attacking and eating as much of the snow as she can get in her little mouth. Some of her favorite treats are ice cubes from the freezer, so to her this is like a whole yard full of treats. So come on snow gods, keep it a-coming. I’m ready to go skiing.

These pancakes I used to make weekly as a kid. Saturday morning meant pancakes. So that’s what I made this morning — with a little deviation from the original recipe. You could definitely make these with all-purpose flour, as the original recipe calls for, but I like the addition of more interesting flours. It gives the pancakes a much more grainy and hearty texture. Experiment with whatever you have.bowl of ingredientsMULTIGRAIN PANCAKES (Recipe adapted from Betty Crocker’s “Red Pie” Cookbook)

2 eggs
2 1/4 cups sour milk
3 Tbsp. cooking oil
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
3/4 cup rye flour
3/4 cup oat flour
2 Tbsp. raw sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. fine-grain sea salt

Beat eggs; add remaining ingredients in order listed. Stir until smooth. Grease heated griddle and cook until edges dry and popped bubbles remain pockets. *You know your griddle is the right temperature when drops of water dance around on the surface.* Flip and cook until golden brown. Enjoy topped with a pat of butter and maple syrup or fresh fruit and powdered sugar.

  1. Kristen,
    Jerry forwarded your blog link to us. Im really impressed with your healthy recipes, and will definitely try out the curry and pancakes. The spagetti looks like it would be fun to make from scratch but I may be too lazy to do that. BTW, you have a great knack for writing. Keep up the good work. Jerry is imensely proud of both of you. He told us the whole story of Andys elk. Wow, what a memory.

    • Thank you so much, Gilmers! Andy put in three seasons of hard work to get this elk and it is so cool that he and Jerry got to experience shooting this bull together. Thank you, Mr. Elk, for your sacrifice. Stay tuned for more elk recipes :)
