Spelt Oatmeal Pancakes

This morning I realized I had run out of whole wheat pastry flour, and didn't have time to grind more when I stumbled upon some leftover spelt flour I had ground a while back.  Since spelt is low in gluten like pastry flour, I decided to try it in my pancakes.  These pancakes were fluffy, rich, and perfect when topped with peanut butter and syrup.  (If you've never tried peanut butter and syrup on pancakes, don't knock it till you try it!)  Here's the recipe I made up this morning:

Spelt Oatmeal Pancakes

2 cups spelt flour

1/2 cup oatmeal

1/8 cup crushed pecans (optional but ooooh so good)

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 tbsp coconut oil (melted or softened)

1 cup milk

1/8 cup honey

2 eggs

Mix the dry, add the wet, then griddle yourself up some delicious and healthy multi-grain goodness!

I couldn't get the pictures to work, so for photos and more whole wheat and starter recipes on my blog at
