DASH Blueberry Oat Pancakes
1-1/2 cups water
1/2 cup steel cut oats
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup milk
1/2 cup Greek yogurt, vanilla flavor
1 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons agave nectar
In a medium pot bring water to a boil and add steel cut oats and salt. Reduce heat to a low simmer and cook until oats are tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl combine whole wheat pastry flour, baking powder and soda, egg, milk and yogurt. Mix until a batter is formed. Gently fold in blueberries and cooked oats.
Heat griddle or non-stick skillet heated over medium and coat with cooking spray. Spoon one quarter cup of batter onto surface and cook until pancakes begin to bubble and are slightly golden, about 2 – 3 minutes per side, working in batches if needed.
Garnish each pancake with about one tablespoon agave nectar.
