Steel Cut Oats Pancakes & Documenting a Pancake Adventure


  • 1 1/2 cups steel cut oats cooked (amount can vary, whatever you have available)
  • 1 1/4 cups soy rice, etc. milk
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat or buckwheat flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour or white spelt flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • sliced bananas chocolate chips, blueberries, chopped nuts, etc. (optional)


  • Cook steel cut oats according to package directions. Set aside. Alternatively, just throw whatever leftover oats you have into the batter at the end.
  • Heat up a frying pan on medium. If nonstick, no need to oil, but if not, do it.
  • Mix all the wet ingredients together in a bowl, then all the dry ingredients together in another bowl. You can use whatever flours you like for the 1 cup total of flour, I just like half and half with whole wheat and regular.
  • Add the wet to the dry and stir just enough to combine. If you like thin pancakes, you might want to add a bit more soymilk until the batter is to your liking, just do it by eye!
  • Pour batter to your preferred size pancake into the heated pan and flip with little bubbles have formed all over.
  • Flip!
  • Stack up on a plate and serve with your desired pancake accessories (maple syrup?).
