Whole Grain Buttermilk Pancakes

Top Review by Bobbin

My kids and I love this recipe. They gobble them us as fast I can cook them. It is so easy to make, too. I use unsweetened applesauce in place of the oil and skim or 1% milk in place of the buttermilk. This is my base recipe and then I will add a splash of vanilla and some fruit, such as mashed banana or chopped apple with some cinnamon, These are yummy and I love the fact that they are whole grain!

  1. In a medium size bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, oat bran, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and baking soda, and salt. In another bowl, combine the buttermilk, egg yolks and oil.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
  3. Stir in the buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture. Fold in the egg whites.
  4. Lightly coat a skillet with cooking spray and set over moderate heat. When the skillet is hot, cook the pancakes 4 at a time, using 1/4 cup batter for each.
  5. Cook for about 2 minutes on one side or until bubbles appear on the surface; turn, then cook 2 minutes or until golden brown on each side and cook through.
