Every month momstown Edmonton gets together at Pan Tree Kitchen and Callingwood Recreation Center to cook something delicious and (usually) nutritious. This month, we decided to make some healthy whole wheat oatmeal pancakes. Pancakes are an easy thing to make with kids, and are always a hit in my house. These pancakes are the perfect mix of fluffiness and deliciousness, and they are healthy as well!
Healthy Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes
(slightly adapted from here)
What you need:
1 C whole wheat flour
1/2 C quick oats
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 large egg
1 cup milk
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 C Greek yogurt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 C add-ins (like chocolate chips or fruit, optional)
What you do:
1. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, oats, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon. Make a well in the middle and set aside.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk the egg and milk together. Whisk in the brown sugar and yogurt until smooth. Stir in vanilla.
3. Pour the wet ingredients into the well in the dry ingredients. Stir gently until just combined. Mix in any add-ins here. Do not overmix, lumps are good!!
4. Heat a griddle or pan over medium heat. Coat with oil or butter. Once hot, drop small amounts of batter on the griddle. Cook about one minute until the edges look dry and bubbles begin to form on sides or center. Flip and cook on other side until cooked through, about 2 more minutes.
5. Enjoy warm! Serve with syrup, whip cream, fruit, or whatever you like to eat on your pancakes!
