Although I'm not a fan of all the recipes in Sally Fallon's book, Nourishing Traditions; THIS recipe rocks!
It takes a tiny bit of preparation, in that you have to soak the whole wheat (or whatever grain you use) overnight. It's definitely worth it.
Nourishing Traditions Pancakes:
- 2 C. Freshly ground (yeah right) Whole Wheat, Spelt, or Kamut Flour.
- 2 C. Buttermilk, Yogurt, or Kefir. (I use buttermilk.)
- 2 Eggs lightly beaten.
- 1/2 t. Sea Salt. (Never have it--table salt won't make the batter spontaneously combust.)
- 1 t. Baking Soda.
- 2 T. Melted Butter.
Soak flour in buttermilk 12-24 hours.
Stir in other ingredients and thin to the consistency you want with water.
(I line 'em up on our electric griddle.)
They take a little longer than the usual pancake batter. A few minutes on each side.
In the book, it says the recipe serves 16-20. However, I find that when I make them, I end up with 12 pancakes. I use a 1/4 C. measuring cup to pour onto the griddle.
They don't look like much. But, give grain soaking a chance! Nutty, chewy, a little sour. They are REALLY good. Pour on a little love, butter and real maple syrup. Happy me. Happy kids.
