Adapted from a recipe I developed for All You magazine
Yield: 8 pancakes
3/4 cup oat bran
1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 large egg
1 Tbsp. olive oil or avocado oil
Olive oil cooking spray or ghee, for griddle
Maple syrup. for serving
1. In a large bowl, combine oat bran, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a medium bowl, whisk buttermilk, egg and oil to combine. Pour buttermilk mixture into oat bran mixture and stir until not quite combined (you should still see lumps of flour).
2. Preheat a griddle or large skillet over medium-low heat. Mist with cooking spray (or brush with ghee) and drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls. Cook until underside is golden (gently lift with a spatula to check), 2 to 3 minutes. Flip pancakes and cook until browned on other side, about 1 minute longer. Pass warm maple syrup at the table with pancakes, if desired.
