Dried Sage, and Oatmeal Apple Pancakes

It is almost time for Thanksgiving, and Thanksgiving means turkey and stuffing, and turkey and stuffing just beg for dried sage. It is so easy to dry your own. Simply wash your sage and lay to dry on a towel, or do what I do and give it a spin in your salad spinner.

Tie the ends together using kitchen string or dental floss.Make sure to leave enough string for bringing out of the holes and tying. Then place in a paper
bag with a hole poked for hanging. Using the string from the sage bring it out through the holes and hang to dry. This allows the sage to dry upside down and have plenty of air circulating around it.

This next recipe is my new favorite comfort food. These pancakes are so soft, delicious and healthy! You have to try them to believe them.

Apple Oatmeal Pancakes                  

1 cup oat flour
1 cup flour-I used spelt, use buckwheat for gluten free option
1 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons melted butter or coconut oil
1 cups milk or almond milk
1 cup cooked oatmeal
1/2 cup grated apple
2 tbsp maple syrup
2 large eggs-or use the egg re-placer of your choice. I used flax and water. 

You can grind your own flour by placing 1 1/4 cups of oats in your food processor or blender. I ended up with 1 cup almost exactly. Then mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl, the wet ingredients in a small bowl, and then add together and stir lightly until just combined. Cook over low to medium heat until just golden! Topped with apples and a dusting of cinnamon these are irresistible! The oat flour is so healthy. This is a great breakfast for dinner recipe.
