Good morning– I would pretty much be happy to eat pancakes every morning of the week– instead of my routine yogurt or oatmeal. And, happily, these little pancakes are pretty much guilt free (until I slather them with maple syrup!). They’re tender and fluffy and I’d say a great way to start out the day…
FLUFFY BRAN PANCAKES
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup unbleached white flour
2/3 cup bran
1/4 cup sugar
1 tab. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups buttermilk*
1/4 cup canola oil
toppings: fruit, maple syrup, jam, honey, butter, powdered sugar, yogurt, granola… (take your pick!)
In a mixing bowl stir together the wheat flour, white flour, bran, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix in the egg, buttermilk and oil, Cook the pancakes on a medium high grill, sprayed with cooking spray until they are perfectly browned on each side.
Serve with your favorite toppings. Makes about 16 pancakes.
*If you don’t have buttermilk on hand (like I don’t)– pour a couple tablespoons of cider vinegar into your measuring up and fill up with milk to make 1 1/2 cups.
