Every recipe has a story! Amber shared hers with us: “The reason why I use a mixture of regular oats and steel cut oats is because steel cut oats are less processed, thus retaining more of its nutrition. Also, to spice it up, I added Crofters Natural Berry Jelly on each pancake layer, plus fresh cut D’Anjou Pears on top with chia seeds, coconut, raw agave nectar, and pumpkin seeds. So yummy!” –Amber

What you need:
1/3 Cup organic oats
2/3 Cup organic oatmeal
1/2 Cup almond flour
1/8 Cup organic flax-meal
3/4 Cup 2% milk
1/8 Cup apple juice
1 Stevia packet (2 gram packet)
1 Tsp. baking powder
1/2 Tsp. vanilla
3/4 Tsp. cinnamon

*If you want this recipe to be gluten free, make sure the oats you buy are certified gluten free. If you want it to be vegan, replace the egg with a “chia or flax egg”.
Directions: (Approximate cook time: 15 minutes; Serves 2 adults.)
Put your oats in a food processor or blender, and grind them as finely as possible until it resembles a flour. (Some of the steel cut oats will still be somewhat coarse.)
Next, heat a nonstick frying pan over medium to medium-high heat.
Put all of your dry ingredients together in a bowl, and whisk just enough until its all evenly mixed; Do the same with all of your wet ingredients in a different bowl.
Now, combine your wet & dry ingredients. (TIP: If your mixture seems too runny, you can always add more flax-meal to absorb the liquid; this absorption isn’t immediate, so wait a few minutes.)
Apply coconut oil or olive oil spray if necessary onto hot pan or griddle, then ladle 1/3 cup of batter onto it; Wait until you see bubbles on the top on the pancake and dry edges, then flip. Repeat this process until all of the pancake are done; serve immediately.
Eat & enjoy!
