Mighty Whole Grain PancakesPosted: March 16, 2013
Who doesn’t love a good pancake? One morning I decided that I really wanted pancakes. You may be thinking pancakes are usually reserved for special occasions or family gatherings but I had no problem enjoying these pancakes on my own. I used some leftover cooked quinoa as part of the dry mix.
Mighty Whole Grain Pancakes (makes 6 medium sized pancakes)
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup oat flour (or oats ground in food processor)
1/4 cup whole rolled oats (I used oat cereal with wheat bran but normal oats will do here)
1/4 cup cooked quinoa
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp ground flax seeds
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp each baking powder and baking soda
1 tbsp brown sugar or honey
1 farm fresh egg
1 cup soy milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp melted coconut oil
add ins and sprinkles: chopped walnuts, chopped banana, hemp seeds
1. Mix first 9 ingredients together and last 4 ingredients in a bowl separately. Mix together wet and dry ingredients.
2. Heat a skillet on medium heat and scoop a few spoonfuls of batter onto skillet and add your add-ins if you wish. Allow to cook for 2-3 minutes and flip, allow to cook on other side.
3. Serve with chopped banana, maple syrup and a sprinkling of help seeds and enjoy!
