Is there anything better than a fluffy, warm stack of pancakes?
A fluffy, warm stack of buttermilk oat pancakes with the most incredible cherry compote.
I felt it was finally time to get it together and cook us up a breakfast recipe. Long overdue, I know. But, these buttermilk oat pancakes with a salted maple cherry compote will not disappoint and were totally worth the wait for an ultimate breakfast recipe.
These buttermilk oat pancakes are light and fluffy in texture, yet hearty and soul warming. This makes it the perfect excuse to make pancakes everyday, right?
Okay so here is the thing. I really wanted to make buckwheat pancakes, so originally that's what I made and I really wanted to love them. I couldn't even like them. They were not edible. They were TERRIBLE.
You win some, you lose some. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Thus how I eventually came to the idea of oat pancakes. I love oat flour. The nuttiness is almost sweet with such a delicate taste. Vegan buttermilk oat pancakes would not have been made possible without the help of a mixture of almond milk and apple cider vinegar.
Salted maple cherry compote is the ultimate topping for these light and fluffy cakes. This cherry compote is the perfect balance of flavor for your short stack.
Sometimes pancakes seems so so far out of reach during the weekdays, when we are rushing out the door to get to work. Good thing these buttermilk oat pancakes hold up beautifully. Make a double batch over the weekend or Sunday night (when the world is meal-prepping their little hearts out) and store in a reusable bag in the fridge. Pop a couple in the toaster oven to warm up and enjoy.
And if you need another easy grab and go for breakfast, try the best damn cornbread you will ever eat.
