You can be sure that if I'm for breakfast or brunch, I will likely order one of two dishes: pancakes or French toast. What can I say? I have a sweet carb tooth. I was intrigued by the idea of oat pancakes. Oats and a dash of whole wheat flour lend a nutty taste and healthy fiber to these pancakes. Greek yogurt adds tang and packs a protein punch.

The syrup. Oh, the syrup. It smells SO GOOD while cooking. Cinnamon and cloves pear well with mild pears. Using pre-sliced Woot Fruit pear packages makes the prep go faster. The packages I received from Woot Fruit for participating in Brunch Week almost didn't make it long enough for me to make this recipe, but not because the fruit went bad. Oh no — it's because certain members of my family couldn't keep their hands off of them!

Definitely serve these pancakes warm. They are delicious just off the griddle, but take on a gummy texture when they cool down. Leftovers can easily be refrigerated or frozen. Store the syrup in a jar in the refrigerator, and drizzle it over pancakes, toast, a bagel, or even in your tea!

Cinnamon Oat Pancakes with Spiced Pear Syrup #BrunchWeek

Yield: 12 pancakes

Ingredients

For the pancakes:

  • ½ cup vanilla-flavored Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ¼ cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp . baking powder
  • 1 tsp . cinnamon
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 Tbsp . milk
  • ½ Tbsp . honey or maple syrup

For the syrup:

  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 oz packages Woot Fruit sliced pears, 3-
  • ½ cup Dixie Crystals light brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp to 3 water
  • 2 cloves whole
  • 1 inch cinnamon stick, 3-
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Place the rolled oats in a food processor, and process until a fine flour forms. Place the oat flour in a medium mixing bowl. Add the remaining pancake ingredients, and stir just until combined. The batter will still be lumpy. Let the batter rest for 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat a griddle to 350 degrees, or set a saute pan over medium heat. Spoon the batter by the ¼-cupful onto the griddle or saute pan. Cook until golden brown and set around the edges. Carefully flip and cook on the other side until golden brown.
  3. To make the syrup, melt the butter in a medium saute pan over medium heat. Add the pears, and saute for about 3 or 4 minutes, until the pears become tender, but still hold their shape. Add the brown sugar, and cook for a minute to allow the sugar to dissolve.
  4. Decrease the heat to medium-low, and add the water, cinnamon stick, cloves and salt. Allow the mixture to simmer, stirring frequently, and thicken, about another 5 minutes. Remove the cinnamon stick and cloves, pour into a storage jar.
  5. Serve two pancakes per person, with a few spoonfuls of warm syrup drizzled over top.

Scottish tattie scones, aka potato scones, resemble pancakes more than typical scones. They combine potatoes, flour, and butter and are sauteed on a griddle. #BrunchWeek theredheadbaker.com
