Saturday morning hearty pancakes

Ahhhh....Saturday morning. 

Open the windows. Let the cool, desert air in. 

Turn on a pot of coffee.... 

Fresh blackberries
Fresh blueberries
Dark chocolate chips

If you want more to your pancakes than the simple "out-of-the-box" flavor, try these! They're filling and full of the good stuff :)

Makes about 15 or so medium sized pancakes


1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup buckwheat flour
1/3 cup oat bran
1/3 (heaping) cup oats

1/4 toasted pecans

1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon

1 cup buttermilk
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp olive oil

Any fruit you want to thrown in


0. If you don't have buttermilk (like me), use the following to make your own!
        -  1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
        -  1 cup of milk

        0.a Stir both the vinegar and milk together
        0.b Let it sit for about 5 minutes to let it turn to "buttermilk"

1. In a big bowl combine all of the dry ingredients with a fork.
2. Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and break in the egg. Give the egg a little stir.
3. Pour in the buttermilk and add the vanilla and oil.
4. Stir all together and then let the batter sit for 5 minutes.
5. Spoon batter out onto a hot, oiled griddle.
6. Add the fruit or chocolate before flipping.
