“Christin Cooper (1984 Silver Medal Olympic Winner in alpine skiing) says the recipe can be adjusted using stone-ground whole wheat flour and hearty oats for big ski days or white flour and quick oats for mellower mornings by the wood stove. I wanted to make a heartier pancake that didn't taste like cake this morning, and the texture reminds me of cottage cheese pancakes. The oil in the recipe is completely optional. Little or no oil is needed for cooking. The batter is runnier than a traditional batter, but they fluff up during cooking. If the batter sits too long, the oats will continue to absorb the milk and you may have to add more milk (my batter didn't sit, but this is Christin's suggestion). I added a splash of vinegar to the milk to make buttermilk because I didn't have yogurt. Next time I make these I think I'll add a little vanilla and maybe some cinnamon for fun. I think blueberries would also be yummy. Recipe from Sun Valley Celebrity and Local Heroes Cookbook. Thank you Christin for your delicious recipe!”
