Best Food To Lower Blood Sugar Quickly
A Tasty Oatmeal Pancake Recipe That is Healthy For You
Regular pancakes are usually made from white flour and are considered not having as many nutrients as those made with other grains. They are carbohydrate loaded so in some cases they can cause your blood sugar to rise rather high. Flour pancakes have no source of fiber but if you use other grains you will be able to provide your body with less carbohydrates and a great deal of fiber. You can use oatmeal as one of those alternative grains to make an Oatmeal Pancake Recipe.
The original oatmeal pancake comes from a country you would not expect it to come from. They come from Sweden and are usually served with fruit and jelly instead of syrup. Oatmeal pancakes can be served with regular syrup too and they taste very good, but you can also put applesauce on them if you do not want to use syrup.
In this recipe use regular oatmeal instead of the microwave type. Also avoid the Quick Oats in the following recipe. The only oatmeal you should use is slow cooked oatmeal and you can use organic oatmeal if you wish.
Easy oatmeal pancakes can be made by combining one and one half cup of rolled oats with two cups of milk in a large bowl. Let this sit for about 10 minutes and continue. In a separate bowl combine one half cup whole wheat flour, one half cup all purpose flour, one tablespoon baking powder, one tablespoon brown sugar, one fourth teaspoon salt, and one half teaspoon of ground cinnamon. Mix this well with a whisk but be careful not to whisk so hard it flies out of the bowl.
Beat two whole eggs and add them to the oatmeal that has been soaking. Also melt one fourth cup of butter and add that to the oats as well. The last thing you add is one teaspoon of vanilla. Now you take the flour mixture and add it little by little to the oat mixture mixing well by hand until it is all incorporated into a pancake batter.
Get a skillet or griddle hot and add a little bit of oil or butter. Take one fourth cup of the batter and place it on the hot skillet. You will see bubbles start to gather around the outside and once the whole pancake is encircled with the bubbles you can turn it to the other side. Once both sides are nicely browned and the inside is fluffy and light place the pancake on a serving plate. Butter can be placed on top along with some syrup, applesauce, or jam.
A homemade syrup can be made to go along with your oatmeal pancakes and that is an orange syrup. This is really easy to make and will taste divine with the pancakes. In a medium saucepan place one half cup of sugar, one fourth cup orange juice, one fourth cup butter, and one fourth cup light corn syrup. Whisk this all together and heat until it starts to boil. Remove from heat and let cool about 5 minutes and serve over the pancakes. This is not the healthiest topping in the world for an oatmeal pancake recipe but if you want to splurge just once give it a try.
