  1. Add oats to food processor, blend on medium until oats turn into flour. Do not turn it into a powder, you want it slightly course.

  2. Add all ingredients into food processor and blend until mixed thoroughly and its batter.

  3. Let batter stand at least 10 min so oats can absorb liquid.

  4. Using a good non-stick pan – turn on medium heat. If you have a good pan, no oil is necessary. I usually wipe the pan with a tiny bit of oil, (Esselstyn recommends this method in his book Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease.)

  5. Note: Do NOT cook pancakes on more than medium heat! These pancakes are dense, and it takes a little while for oats to cook. If your stove top cooks hot, you are better off turning it down a little and being patient. These are NOT 5 min flap jacks and take a while to cook. About 7-8 min per side.

  6. Serv! I love to add walnuts (This would make the recipe PS), a sprinkle of cinnamon and pure Michigan maple syrup.

  7. NOTE: Do not expect these to be like a fluffy flapjack. If your batter is too thick, they will be gummy in the middle. This recipe can only be made without oil if you have a high quality hard anodized non-stick pan (like Scan Pan brand.) If you are not sure about the temperature setting, start lower than you think.
