kamut oatmeal pancakes with apple pie spice

Remember “the summer of george” from Seinfeld?  Well, the designer has declared this our family’s “summer of home!”  It’s not just having baby twin boys (though believe me staying home with them makes everything easier!)…it’s the flu, Brittany’s wedding, Aunt Charlotte’s funeral, building Grandma’s new deck and our playscape, and now the chicken pox.

Did she just say…? No! Totally unheard of as of late…ummm yes, I said it.

The explorer came in covered with them the other morning.  My friend had warned me when she found out her baby wasn’t just breaking out from her mmr vaccine.  Sweet thing!  We rushed to see Tiffany to get the dancer and twins treated. (The builder caught them as a baby from a lil’ friend who’d been vaccinated).

So our “summer of home”…we’re already embracing the simple, in fact we call it living by “the squeaky wheel.”  Only the imperative is paid attention it seems. One more reason to stay home and enjoy this sweet home…bake, read, paint, make streams and forts in the yard…

And another reason to enjoy breakfast.  I started soaking grains again, hooray!

Here is a recipe adapted from a favorite of our cousin’s living in Zurich. Enjoy!

kamut oatmeal apple pie spice pancakes

In a medium bowl, whisk together:
2 1/2 cups buttermilk
2 large eggs
1/4 cup melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla

then add and combine:
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup kamut flour
3 tablespoons raw sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 tsp apple pie spice {cinnamon, nutmeg, & allspice}

Cover and refrigerate over night…or let soak at least 2 hours.

These take a little longer to cook and I’ll cover them with a lid to help them heat evenly between flipping.

Cover with your favorite toppings.

serves 8

So it might be the ‘summer of home,’ but it looks like it will be a yummy one! xo ~ katrina

  1. Your a busy lady! It sounds like you handle the challenges though with aplomb! Thanks for including a recipe that includes KAMUT(R) wheat flour. I would like to share a little more about the trademarked grain with you and your readers:

    KAMUT® Brand khorasan is an organic, non-genetically modified, ancient wheat variety similar to durum. In 1990, “KAMUT” was registered as a trademark by the Quinn family in order to support organic farming and preserve the ancient khorsasan wheat variety. Under the KAMUT® Brand name, khorasan wheat must always be grown organically, never be hybridized or modified, and contain high levels of purity and nutrition. Today, Kamut International owns and has registered the KAMUT® trademark in over 40 countries, and is responsible for protection and marketing of all KAMUT® Brand khorasan wheat throughout the world.

    KAMUT® wheat is grown on dryland certified organic farms primarily in Montana, Alberta, and Saskatchewan. The grain is prized by consumers who appreciate the grain for its high energy nutrition, easy digestibility, nutty/buttery taste, and firm texture. KAMUT® khorasan wheat is higher in protein, selenium, amino acids, and Vitamin E than most modern wheat and contains essential minerals such as magnesium and zinc. It is used as whole grain berries, whole grain flour, white flour, flakes, and puffs to make a variety of products. Some specific benefits of using KAMUT® khorasan are receiving more nutrients, protein, and taste than most commonly consumed whole wheat – plus supporting organic agriculture and helping to preserve an ancient grain.

    KAMUT® khorasan is a variety of wheat thus has gluten content. A lot of people who are not able to tolerate wheat tell us that they are able to tolerate KAMUT® khorasan wheat. KI has ongoing research to understand why – it is our theory that because KAMUT® khorasan is an ancient grain, it retains the qualities that made it desirable so many years ago.
