Whole-Wheat Pancake Recipe

1 1/4 c oats (large flakes)
1 1/4 c skim milk
1 large egg
1 c whole-wheat baking flour
1 tsp low-sodium baking powder
1 tbsp canola oil
1/4 c blueberries (optional)

1. In a medium bowl, mix oats with milk; let stand 5 minutes.

2. Add egg and oil to oats mixture, then stir to combine. Add dry ingredients and mix until just blended. For an antioxidant boost, add quarter-cup fresh blueberries to batter before cooking.

3. Spoon out quarter-cup of mixture onto hot skillet. Cook until golden brown. Flip and cook until other side is golden.

Mmmm. Who’s ready for breakfast in bed? —Erin

    These pancakes were awesome! I’ve been trying a different pancake recipe every Saturday morning, and these were definitely some of the best I’ve had. The oats give the pancakes great texture and make them really hearty. I did switch out the egg for a banana and added a squirt of agave for sweetness. Oh, and I added a handful of chocolate chips…I was out of blueberries. :)

    these are so good! Subbed applesauce for oil and used almond milk. Added the blueberries, splenda and vanilla extract. Added few chopped walnuts on top and sliced banana……..delicious!
