    1. 1
      Mix together dry ingredients. (You can do this the night before).
    2. 2
      In a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients and brown sugar then add to the dry, mixing until just moist, folding in pecans and cranberries.
    3. 3
      If using cranberries, prepare as follows: Thaw if frozen. Cut in halves and place in bowl with sprinkle of white sugar. Toss in sugar then fold into pancake batter with pecans. (This cuts the tartness).
    4. 4
      Let stand for five minutes **Don't skip this step.
    5. 5
      Heat GREASED griddle to 350 while the pancake batter is standing.
    6. 6
      Pour pancake batter onto griddle, and lightly spread outwards with a spatchula. Due to the molasses, this batter can thicken quite a bit.
    7. 7
      Flip when bubbles form on top of pancake and edges are dry. Enjoy with maple syrup, caramel sauce, pear sauce, or applesauce.

      What a nice way to use oat bran. I found that my pancakes were very thick and hearty. I might try to thin them out a bit more next time with extra milk or maybe use a finer grain bran. Thanks!

      I did make this recipe on Christmas morning for my family. I didn't have time to do all the measuring and sifting so I used a Hodgson Mills Whole Wheat Baking Mix I have for hurried mornings, but added everything else as the recipe calls (minus the baking powder) and it was a big hit. A truly special meal for that lazy morning at home. I topped the pancakes with home slow cooked chunky applesauce. Everyone should add this one to their cookbook.

      I have had this recipe in my menu to make for weeks now and finally the right morning came around. There was enough time to make and enjoy them. They are are so good that being healthy is really a bonus and not their reason for being. I'm not a cranberry fan and DH won't eat nuts so I skipped the berries and sprinkled chopped pecans on top of mine. With a light drizzle of no sugar added maple syrup this is an ideal indulgent winter brekkie that you can enjoy without ruining the whole day in a dietary way.
