What joy the gospel gives me. I can approach the throne of God with confidence, not because I've done a good job at my spiritual duties, but because I'm clothed in the righteousness of Jesus Christ. ~ C.J. Mahaney

Not Your Granny's Flapjacks!

We like to have breakfast for supper every once in a while. The menu usually goes something like this:

Turkey Sausage
Orange Juice

I have this great recipe for pancake mix that uses five whole grains: wheat, rice, barley, oats, and rye. I grind the five grains in the grain mill and add in the other dry ingredients. This mixture is stored in a tub in the freezer to keep it nice and fresh. (Since whole grains still have the natural oils in them, they have a tendency to go rancid faster than processed grains. However, these natural oils, for instance, wheat germ, are what make them so nutritious.) When it's time to make them, I scoop some of the mixture out and just add the liquid ingredients. We love them with real butter and maple syrup.

You grind your own???!!! Wow. Where would one find whole grains suitable for such an exercise? Do you have your own quern-stone? I find this fascinating!
Daddy says that Grand-Mommy used to make buckwheat pancakes, but he says they were all flat and black and didn't taste very good. Yours look all fluffy and GB&D (Golden Brown and Delicious).
