Best Pancakes Ever

One could say I grew quite a lot while on the Redmond leadership week in Lake Powell.

Above the neck, for sure. But in the waistline, too.

The food, prepared by a team from Redmond’s Real Foods stores and full of their premium products, was restaurant quality. Or better. (After all, I tend to think home-cooking is much better than dining-out fare.)

With permission from Redmond and cook Tana Besendorfer, I share this recipe for the best pancakes you will ever taste:



2 cups oats

2 cups buttermilk

2 eggs

¼ cup butter, melted

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 ½ to 2 teaspoons cinnamon

½ teaspoon Real Salt

1 ½ tablespoon sugar



  1. Combine oats and buttermilk in a large bowl, cover, and let sit overnight on the counter. (Don’t worry it won’t spoil. Don’t have buttermilk? Add a tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar to each cup of milk as a substitute.)
  2. In the morning, combine remaining ingredients and mix well.
  3. Cook on a medium-hot griddle with butter or oil. (Note: they cook much more slowly than most pancakes.)
  4. Bon appetit!
