This is my favourite pancake recipe and also my favourite way of feeding the kids dinner on nights I don’t want to fight to get them to eat. Served up with fresh fruit and a dollop of thick yogurt, this is a treaty meal I don’t have to feel guilty about serving my kids. My friend Carolyn served this to us at a playdate at her house over a year ago and I have since made these about once a week (every two weeks at most) and have passed along the recipe to anyone who would listen (I’m what you’d call a pusher). Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

1 1/2 cups rolled oats

2 cups milk

1 cup spelt flour

1 Tbsp brown sugar (or maple syrup, or agave syrup, or honey)

1 Tbsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cinnamon

2 lightly beaten eggs

1/4 cup butter, melted

1. Soak oats in milk at least 30 min but up to overnight. I usually soak mine at least a couple of hours.

2. Combine flour through cinnamon. Set aside.

3. Add eggs and butter to oat mixture and stir to combine, then add in the dry ingredients and stir until just mixed.

4. Drop by large spoonfuls into a hot skillet and flip once they start to bubble around the edges.

5. Remove  from pan once browned on the flip side and serve with your favourite toppings.
