I never had that particular cookbook but I learned to make Power Pancakes from a Zone Diet group online. Their recipe had oat flour and no milk -- I made hundreds of these over the years for my late husband mostly, after all the children had flown the nest. I would make a huge batch and package them in a bundle of three for him to take out of the fridge or freezer to microwave for breakfast before leaving for his early morning job.

They really are adaptable and sooo good as you point out, fried in butter :-) But I haven't had one in ages, and now I've got the longing... Thank you for sharing!

I didn't have that cookbook, but around that time I started going to La Leche League meetings and met friends who are still dear to me today, even though we don't see each other often. That group put together its own copied and stapled cookbook that brings back happy memories, although I rarely use it anymore. Homemade granola bars and a honey wheat bread were favorites, along with those no-bake cookies made of oatmeal, powdered milk, peanut butter, honey and cocoa powder. My daughter puts flax and chia seeds in them sometimes, too.

The comb binding on my copy of Whole Foods for the Whole Family disintegrated sometime around 2000 and since then it has lived in a gallon sized freezer bag with my favorite pages shuffled to the top of the pile. Lots of good family favorites.
