Chef Maki Makes Mixes (Pancake)

I've had to make some dietary adjustments for one child, so I have been experimenting in the kitchenfor quick and easy things to feed him. It is nice to have things premade, or at least partly made in order to get them to the table more quickly! The following recipe you can substitute the oat flour for a mixture of several other flours and that still meets with the approval of the eater. :)

Oat Flour Pancake Mix

12 cups oat flour (just grind flakes in blender or food processor until flour-like)
1/4 cup baking powder
1.5 tsp salt
1 tsp fructose or 1/2 tsp sugar

Mix ingredients all around and store in a labeled Ziploc baggie. When ready to use, in a bowl, mix together:
1 egg, whisked
½ cup almond, soy, rice, or regular milk
½ cup water

Then add 1 cup mix. Let the batter sit for about 3 to 5 minutes. Yes, it will be thick.

Put a little corn oil in a skillet on medium low heat. Ladle in batter and cook on one side until round air holes appear on the top side--be patient, it takes a while. Flip the cake over for a short while to lightly brown the second side.

Stupid picture of imperfect multigrain pancake...

This is best served with blueberry or strawberry sauce which is made by mixing together:

Fruit Sauce
1 cup water
1 Tbs cornstarch
½ to 1 ½ cup blueberries or strawberries
Sweetener of choice (honey, agave nectar, fructose, etc.)
Bring mixture to a slow boil over medium heat. Store leftovers in the refrigerator.
