This recipe was given on a large-family forum when someone posted for a great pancake recipe. I took it, tried it, tweaked it for our family's tastes, and came up with a recipe that our family absolutely loves (and with 11 people to please, that means a lot!). Since the grains are soaked overnight, it is even healthier. Give it a whirl through your waffle maker, too-- it's even better as waffles!
I am posting here with permission, and special thanks to my friend Amy's husband's friend, Dale, for the original recipe.
While the recipe may seem daunting at first, it is really very easy-- my 11yo daughter is our chief pancake-and-waffle-chef, and she's quite a pro at this recipe now. We serve this with either real maple syrup, homemade maple-flavored syrup (directions on the Maplene box), or yogurt with chocolate syrup and/or fruit. It's great with any topping-- or none at all! Leftover made pancakes or waffles freeze well, or place leftover batter in a jar in the fridge for a day.
