Serves: 4
  • 2 cups oat flour (blend your own oats to make oat flour)
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1⁄4 tsp. salt
  • 1⁄3 tsp. cinnamon
  • Smidgeon of nutmeg
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 halves canned pears, mashed
  • 1⁄2 cup cottage cheese
  • 1⁄2 cup milk or milk substitute
  • 1⁄4 cup canola oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  1. Combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg in a large bowl and stir together.
  2. In a separate bowl, mash the pears with a fork to create small lumps and chunks.
  3. Add the cottage cheese, eggs, milk or milk substitute, oil, and vanilla, and stir well to combine.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the bowl containing the flour mixture and whisk well to fully incorporate the ingredients.
  5. To prepare the pancakes, lightly oil a griddle, cast iron, or other heavy-bottomed pan and heat over medium-high heat.
  6. Reduce the heat to medium-low, add about 1⁄3 cup of batter per pancake, and cook until bubbles form over the surface of the batter.
  7. Flip the pancake and cook 30 seconds to 1 minute on the other side, or until both sides of the pancake are dark golden brown.
