Nora/Mom guest post: Oatmeal Yogurt Pancakes

Here's a great guest post from my mom, Nora. Take it away, Mom!

I like to have pancakes for dinner on the weekend. It's an easy, warm, fragrant dinner. Using a recipe that has less white flour and fat reduces the guilt to practically nothing. Add some fruit and this is a world-beater. You can also shred and add a small zucchini ... adds moisture and you won't taste it at all.

Gorgeous strawberries- use whatever's in season and whatever's your favorite!
Blend up your batter then stir in the strawberries.
Make sure to use a little bit of butter on your griddle/pan/comal- so worth it!

Oatmeal Yogurt Pancakes
-1 egg
-1 C plain yogurt
-2 T butter
-1/4 C flour (I use whole wheat)
-3/4 C oatmeal
-2 t brown sugar
-1/2 t baking powder
-1/4  t baking soda
-1/4 t salt
-fruit (chopped strawberries, blueberries, etc)
Put all ingredients in blender and blend till mixed. Pour into a bowl, stir in chopped fruit.
Preheat the pan or comal (so handy! every stove should have one). Slip a little bit of butter onto your grill. This is so worth it for taste! Turn pancakes when they get dry around the edges/ show bubbles.

Your finished pancakes, and some beautiful Mexican flowers and tile work as background!

Delicious. Great without any syrup at all! I think I will go eat the leftovers now.

Thanks, Mom! And to everyone who doesn't know- a comal is a flat griddle-like cooking surface that we've encountered everywhere we've been in Mexico- all the stoves have them in the middle- ideal for tortillas etc.- google it if you want more info!

Savor it!
love, rue
