Whole grain oat pancakes with grapes topped with fruit juice

My amazing greengrocer already has in her shop homemade grapes a few weeks. I buy it every second day on the pounds whenever I have a craving for sweets , these berries suppress it. But I'm still thinking how I could use it in the kitchen so I decided yesterday that I prepare pancakes with grapes topped by fruit juice. I have them for lunch, for dinner and even left me for Sunday breakfast too.

I can’t wait to wake up tomorrow!

Of course, these aren´t classic sourdough pancakes from our grandmothers but perhaps you will forgive me that I used the name. We can call them the sweet whole grain pancakes. And what you need? For 12 pancakes:

  • 1 1/2 cups of whole grain oat flour (you can use any whole grain flour)
  • 1 1/2 cup of milk according to taste
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 bunches of grapes
  • half of ripe pear
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla flavor
  • 1 teaspoon of cornstarch
  • almonds for sprinkling (not necessarily)

Put the grapes from one bunch into a small pot and add half of the chopped pear. Add about 3 oz of water and simmer the fruit on small heat for about 10 minutes. While you can make dough for pancakes. Pour flour into a bowl and gradually add other ingredients such as milk, mashed banana, eggs, honey, cinnamon and vanilla flavor and stir everything together. Next, prepare the grapes into the pancakes so that you pick up berries from the bunch and cut it in half. If you mind seeds, you can select them. It's a little extra work, so if you want you can buy a seedless grapes :)

Everything it´s prepare, now only select the pan and make the pancakes in a few drops of oil on low flame. Bake 2-3 minutes on one side and a minute on the second side. Whenever you pour the dough on the pan, lay out on a bit of grapes. Blend stewed fruit by mixer. Pour mixed fruit through a strainer and juice which is created give back over the flame and add the cornstarch. The juice is nicely concentrated and create sweet sauce that you pour over the pancakes. Already just lay out pancakes on a plate, sprinkle them with almonds and who wants to can feel free to use what like on the pancakes. I used a little homemade jam to get the full flavor of the fruit. I wish you good taste!
