Hearty Whole Wheat Pancakes
Why I Love This Recipe
It is from an old Better Homes and Gardens cookbook.
If you love the taste of whole wheat, these healthy pancakes are for you. They truly 'stick-to-your-ribs' without a lot of fat and cholesterol.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
3/4 cup flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar (not packed)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons wheat germ (Opt.)
2 egg whites
1 whole egg
1 1/2 cups of milk (skim works fine)
3 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
Combine all the dry ingredient; stir.
Combine the liquid ingredients together; mix well and add to dry ingredients.
Do not overmix!
Important - let this sit for about 10 minutes.
On a hot griddle (sprayed with Pam lightly), cook carefully until several bubbles appear and pancake begins to 'dull'. Flip and cook for about half of the time.
(Note: Because of the high gluten/wheat germ content, these could burn easily.)
These are delicious served with honey or real maple syrup.
