Easy, Healthy Pancake Recipe

 Here is an easy, healthy pancakes recipe I adapted from AllRecipes.com. 
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup white flour
  • 1/8 cup ground flaxseeds or ground chia seeds
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups lowfat milk or vanilla soy milk 
  •  (if using regular milk use add 1 tsp. vanilla extract)
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  •  
     
     
    Directions
     1.  In a large bowl, mix together the flour,  flax or chia seeds, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center an pour in the milk, vanilla extract, egg and oil; mix until smooth.   Add fresh or frozen fruit (strawberries, blueberries, sliced bananas, etc).
     
     2.   Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. I recommend using cooking spray.   Pour or scoop the  batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
     
    Serves 4. 
     
    What can kids do?  They can measure the ingredients, pour, crack the egg into a separate bowl and add it to the mixture. 
    Kids also love to mix!  Enjoy!!!!
