Rabbit Pancakes

What you need:

  • 1 ¼ cup milk
  • 5 tsp. Lemon juice or cider vinegar
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup oats
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • ½ cup grated carrots
  • Non-stick vegetable cooking spray

How to :

  1. Make sour milk. Warm the milk slightly in the microwave or in a pot on the stove. Add lemon juice or cider vinegar and stir well. Allow this mixture to rest while you assemble the rest of the ingredients.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir well.
  3. Add the vegetable oil, sour milk, egg and carrots.
  4. Beat the mixture with a hand beater until smooth.
  5. Spray griddle with non-stick cooking spray. Heat griddle to a medium heat. (To see if the griddle is hot enough, sprinkle with a few drops of water. If bubbles skitter around, the temperature is just right).
  6. Using a measuring cup, pour about ¼ cup of batter onto the hot griddle for each pancake. Cook until pancakes are puffed and dry around edges. Turn and cook the other side until golden brown.
  7. Top with applesauce, fresh fruits or yogurt.

Makes 16, four inches (10 cm) pancakes.
