 2 1/2 cups regular rolled oats
  Zest of 3 large lemons (rinse and dry lemons before zesting to keep mix dry)
 2 cups whole-wheat flour
 2 cups all-purpose flour
 1 1/2 cups dried buttermilk*
 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
 2 tablespoons baking powder
 1 tablespoon baking soda
 2 teaspoons kosher salt
 2 cups mix
 2 large eggs
 1/4 cup vegetable oil, divided
  Sliced strawberries

Step 3


Step 4

Make pancakes: In a large bowl, whisk together 2 cups mix with 1 cup water, the eggs, and 2 tbsp. oil until smooth. (Batter thickens as it sits.) Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat on a camp stove; grease skillet with 1/2 tbsp. oil.

Step 5

Ladle 1/4-cup portions of batter into skillet. Cook, turning pancakes once and rotating position in pan, until golden brown, 5 to 6 minutes total. Add 1 tsp. oil to skillet and repeat with more batter and oil to cook remaining pancakes, turning down heat if pancakes start browning too fast. Serve with strawberries, butter, and syrup.
