Does anyone know where Pearl Pass is? If you Google it, you will find it is a cross country ski trail going from Aspen, Colorado to Crested Butte, Colorado and is quite famous for its difficulty! I don't ski but I know a really great pancake recipe when I see one and was very grateful when my husband's cousin in Iowa, kindly gave this recipe to me several years ago. Thanks Sue!
Pearl Pass Pancakes
- Servings: About 10, 1/4 cup pancakes
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 3/4 cup rolled oats
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 2 tablespoons wheat germ
- 2 tablespoons bran
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Combine milk and oats and set aside for at least 5 minutes.
- Mix in oil and eggs.
- Stir in remaining ingredients just until moist.
- For each pancake, pour 1/4 cup of batter on hot, oiled skillet or use a non-stick electric griddle and then you don’t need to oil it.
- Turn when top is bubbly, and cook the other side.
Sprinkle with a little powdered sugar and blueberries, strawberries, or sliced bananas. Yum!
Each pancake has a POINTSPLUS VALUE of 3.
Hint: Just like my steel cut oats, make a batch of pancake batter, store it in an air tight container, and keep it in the refrigerator for 3 or 4 days, making a couple or 3 pancakes just for you each morning. It is as simple as preheating the electric griddle!
