Recipe by:



1. Wash hands with soap and water.

2. To prepare homemade mix, start by grinding oats in a food processor until they're finely chopped — but not a powder.

3. Put flours, oats and all other dry ingredients into a mixer with a paddle attachment.

4. While mixer is running on slow speed, slowly drizzle oil into bowl to blend with dry ingredients.

5. Store in airtight container for two weeks at room temperature or indefinitely in the refrigerator or freezer.

6. To make pancakes whisk together ingredients. NOTE: Mixture may look thin.

7. Let batter rest for at least 20 minutes. NOTE: Oats will soak up liquid and mixture will thicken.

8. Heat lightly greased griddle to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (or medium-hot).

9. Drop batter in 1/4-cupfuls to make 4-inch-diameter pancakes.

10. When edges look dry and bubbles come to surface without breaking (after about 2 minutes), flip pancakes over to other side and finish cooking for 2 minutes more.

11. Serve immediately or stack and hold in a warm oven.
