Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes
Recipe source: http://sallysbakingaddiction.com/2013/11/04/whole-wheat-oatmeal-pancakes/
Makes 7-8 pancakes (serving size: 2 pancakes)
- 1 cup of whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup quick oats
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup milk
- 2 Tablespoons dark or light brown sugar
- 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Cooking spray
- Mix flour, oats, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon together in a large bowl. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg and milk. Whisk in the brown sugar and yogurt until there are no lumps. Whisk in the vanilla.
- Push dry ingredients to the sides of the large bowl and pour the wet ingredients in the center. Stir gently until all ingredients are combined (but not too much otherwise your pancakes will be tough).
- Heat griddle or skillet over medium heat. Coat pan with cooking spray before cooking each pancake.
- Once hot, drop about 1/4 cup of batter on the griddle or skillet. Flip batter when bubbles appear and the edges begin to dry (about 1 minute). Cook on second side about 2 minutes.
- To keep cooked pancakes warm, place pancakes on a cookie sheet in a 200°F oven. Serve warm with your choice of toppings.
- To keep this meal healthy, avoid syrup and instead top with warm berries. All you need to do is cook frozen berries in a saucepan until they are soft and warm. Pour heated berries on top of whole wheat pancakes and enjoy!
