Leftover Oatmeal Pancakes

Sunday mornings were made for a pot of tea and experiments with pancakes.
Today's tea was an Earl Grey - Darjeeling blend. OK, not great. I followed it with a pot of Peet's Yunan Fancy - completely satisfying.

Leftover steel cut oats were the inspiration for the pancakes. Basha mixed them with some buckwheat flour, two eggs, a little non-fat yogurt, water, half-and-half, baking powder, sugar, salt, and diced fresh local peaches. In short, what we had on hand that might work.

Results? Strong buckwheat flavor, wonderful texture, and an excellent vehicle for real maple syrup. Next time we'll mix some lighter gluten-free flours in with the buckwheat, for a milder flavor overall. And maybe more peaches. And next time I'll probably eat one more than I can really hold, again.
