Some time ago I posted a recipe for pancakes that I called “Settlers Pancakes” because the recipe was all stone ground whole grains. At first most people find them heavy and once they get used to them, there is no going back to a fluffy white sugar cake for breakfast. Someone with the initials J.M. sent me a comment on one of the sites that simply said “Who are you kidding? Who has that kind of time?”.
Coach’s Oats is a prepackaged pancake mix that takes under 5 minutes to have ready. I have timed myself several times and my worst is 10 minutes. Coach’s Oats are all natural and made with whole grains. According to the label, one serving has 24% of your daily fiber and only 14% of your daily carbs (before syrup and fruit that is). For a grain based product those are some good numbers.
The quick method is easy, if you have a griddle, start it to get it warming.
A quick shot of olive oil cooking spray and you are ready to cook. After about a minute and a half the bubbles will start staying open at the top and you can flip the pancakes. About a minute and half later, the pancakes are ready to eat.
I like to add small organic blueberries and crushed frozen rasberries to mine. For my wife and nephew I also drizzle a line of hershey’s syrup to add some chocolate flavor. That is why my worst time is 10 minutes, I spend too much time making the drizzle art before I flip the cakes and have a mess to clean up. The chocolate does make the kitchen smell good.
