Recipe of the Week:
Multigrain Pancakes

Prep: 10 Minutes       Cook: 3 minutes per batch       Makes: 12 pancakes or 6 Servings
  • 2/3 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup oat bran

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups nonfat (skim) milk
  • 3 tablespoons margarine or butter, melted
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • Canola oil, for brushing pan
  1. In large bowl, combine whole-wheat and all purpose flours, oat bran, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add milk, melted margarine, and egg; stir just until flour mixture is moistened (batter will be lumpy).
  2. Heat griddle or 12-inch skillet over medium heat until drop of water sizzles; brush lightly with oil. Pour batter by scant 1/4 cups onto hot griddle, making a few pancakes at a time. Cook until tops are bubbly, some bubbles burst, and edges look dry. With wide spatula, turn and cook until underside is golden. Transfer to platter; keep warm.
  3. Repeat with remaining batter, brushing griddle with more oil if necessary.
