  • cooking spray
  • Preheat a lightly greased cast iron skillet or griddle over medium heat.
  • 156g / 2 cups quick oats
  • In a food processor fitted with a sharp blade, process oats until they have turned into a medium ground flour. Transfer to a medium bowl.
  • 62g / ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 24g / 2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt to bowl with ground quick oats. Whisk to combine.
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • In a small bowl, whisk eggs and melted butter until smooth.
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • Add buttermilk to eggs and whisk to combine.
  • Pour wet ingredients into bowl with dry ingredients. Whisk to combine until lumps of flour have broken down. If possible, let batter rest for 10 minutes to allow oats to absorb liquid.
  • Grease a cast-iron or nonstick skillet and heat on the stove over medium heat. Splash a few drops of water on the skillet. When water sizzles, skillet is ready.
  • Pour ¼ cup of batter onto skillet for each pancake, being careful not to crowd them. Bake until bottoms are golden brown, edges appear to be dry, and bubbles have formed on the top, about 2 minutes. Flip pancake and let cook on the other side until done, about 2 additional minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.
  • agave or maple syrup
  • Serve with a light drizzle of agave or maple syrup as appropriate.
