GTU Sponsor

(Good Things Utah) – Sarah Patterson from Red Acre Farms joined Nicea and Reagan live to show off their local’s favorite farm-inspired flapjack mix. The recipe is perfect if you’re cooking for yourself or those you love. Made from scratch with locally sourced ingredients, this is a fun and delicious recipe to make any time of the year.

Utah Farm Girl Flapjacks


  • 1½ cups fresh ground wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup oats 
  • ½ cup cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon of aluminum-free baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon Real Salt
  • 11/2 sticks cold butter
  • 4 cups buttermilk or milk 
  • 4 eggs 
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans (optional)


1. Combine whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, oats, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a food processor, pulse until well blended about a minute or two

2. Cut your cold butter into ¼ inch chunks

3. In a large mixing bowl combine your flour mixture, milk, eggs, butter, mix well.

4. Add your honey and pecans.  

5. Heat a cast-iron griddle or skillet, brush with butter. You will only need to butter your pan once. 

6. Ladle your batter onto the skillet. The butter in the batter will melt and make beautiful pockets in your pancakes. 

7. Cook until golden on both sides  

Serve with a jar of farm preserves from the larder and more butter! The dry ingredients can be mixed ahead of time and stored for up to four months, we always have a jar of this flapjack mix on our counter in the farmhouse.
