Gone to Tennessee!

Well, me and part of my family are leaving the farm for Tennessee tomorrow morning  :(  I'll tell you (Lord Willing) later about exactly why, but it's for a medical related issue.

So, my good friend's Suriyah and Kim (GoodGoats) are taking care of the milking goats...THANK YOU GUYS!!  My dad is going to take care of the rest of the farm.

So I'll probably not be posting anything for about a week...I mean, like I post that often anyway, LOL!

Goodnight and have a great week y'all!

Quick Oat Flour Pancakes - Gluten Free!

I've got another recipe for all of you  :)  These pancakes turned out SO fluffy and personally, I like them WAY better than the ready mixed batter you buy at the store...especially since they're gluten-free!  For the oat flour, I make my own out of regular oatmeal.

Pics of how to make your own oat flour below:
Grind oats in a blender
This is what you should wind up with...fluffy oat flour
This recipe makes about 15 pancakes.

-4 egg yolks
-4 egg whites
-1 1/2 cups oatmeal
-1 1/2 cups oat flour
-2 cups milk (I use raw goat milk from my farm)
-4 tsp baking powder
-1 tsp salt
-8 tbsp sugar
-4 tbsp oil


1.  Mix the oat flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a large mixing bowl.

2. Pour milk into a pan and cook until slightly hot.  Turn off the heat and pour in the oats (not the flour).  Let that sit in the pan for 5 minutes.

3.  Separate the egg yolk from the white and put them in two separate bowls.  Then beat the egg yolk and oil together.

4.  Then, mix the egg yolk mixture into the dry ingredients.

5.  Beat the egg white until it's a bit frothy or has some air whipped into it and pour it into the main flour mix.  Don't just stir it in, but fold it until the batter looks fairly smooth.  Now you're ready to make pancakes!

6.  Take a spoon and just pour small amounts of batter into the pan (make sure you grease your pan).

Hope these turn out for you and are as delicious as they were for me :)

Choco Apple & Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal

This is one of the easiest recipes to make and only takes about 50 minutes until it's ready to gobble up!  Being one of my family's favorite breakfast recipes, I make it all the time!

-2 eggs
-6 cups oatmeal,
-1 teaspoon baking soda
-2 cups milk (I use raw goat milk from my farm)
-2 cups sugar
-2 tbs ground cinnamon
-3 apples slices super thin
-1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Mix all of the above ingredients except the apples (save a few chocolate chips for the top).
Oil a 10x10 pan and then lay the thinly sliced apples on the bottom until covered.  Sprinkle just a little bit of cinnamon and sugar on top of the apples.

Pour the mix into the pan and even it out with a spoon.  Then (this is optional) lay a few apple slices and chocolate chips on top to make it look pretty :)

Pop it in the preheated oven and set your timer for 40 minutes.  You're DONE! 

Thanks for reading.  You can also just make the simple baked oatmeal with this same recipe...just take off the apples and chocolate chips.
