Oat and Flax Whole-Wheat Pandering Pancakes

Well, good morning and indeed since I woke up to the news of Sarah Palin being chosen as the GOP VP nominee. I smell a serious scent of McPandering. I wonder what Hillary thinks, and if she'll now go all the way out to remind her Sisters of Traveling Pantsuits-hood that Republicans think women are stupid enough to fall for that ploy. And I wonder if Mitt Romney is secretly seething so hard, the chemicals in his gelled-back hair have combust.

But anyway. Have some pandering pancakes, because we all know that a good show starts off with a hearty breakfast... and of course, I'm just pandering to people's want for IHop goodness.

Update: Check out the awesome pancake photo of Sarah Palin by Dan Lacey.

Oat and Flax Whole-Wheat Pandering Pancakes
Makes 6 pancakes

1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
2/3 cup milk
1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1 tbsp milled flaxseed
1/2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp oil
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg

Soak oats in milk for 5 minutes. In a larger bowl, combine all the dry ingredients and fluff with a fork.

Beat the egg and pour it into the oats and milk mixture. Add to dry ingredients and stir with a spatula until combined. Your mix should be wet but not runny. If it's too dry and sticky, add a bit more milk.

Heat a little butter in a large skillet or griddle and spoon about 1/4 cup of batter onto the pan, cook for about 2 minutes on each side on medium heat.

Berry Sauce
1/2 cup strawberries
1/2 cup blueberries
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp sugar

Simmer all ingredients in a saucepan until mixture becomes thick, about 10 - 15 minutes.

I have no idea what you're talking about, so here's a painting of Sarah Palin with pancakes on her head.
