Quick and Healthy Recipe: Whole Grain & Flaxseed Pancakes
Posted Aug 24 2008 6:44pm
I spotted this recipe in the back of an Arrowhead Mills multigrain pancake and waffle mix I bought, and tinkered with it a little.
The end result makes for a delicious and very nutritious brunch.
: 15 - 20 minutes
: 4 Pancakes
¾ cup whole grain/multigrain pancake mix (i.e.: Arrowhead Mills)
1 Tbsp. canola oil
½ cup + 2 Tbsp. soymilk (
recommend plain or unsweetened varieties)
¼ cup chopped walnuts
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
2 Tbsp. ground flaxseed
Trans-fat free margarine/Earth Balance "butter" sticks (enough to grease skillet)
2 medium bananas
1 cup sliced strawberries
1. Combine pancake mix, canola oil, soymilk, chopped walnuts, vanilla extract, and ground flaxseed in medium bowl.
2. Stir lightly until ingredients are evenly mixed. The batter will be a little lumpy; this is normal. DO NOT OVERMIX.
3. Lightly grease skillet and place over medium flame.
4. Gently pour batter into skillet (remember, this batter makes four pancakes.)
5. Flip pancakes as soon as golden brown color appears on bottom.
6. Once pancakes are evenly cooked, serve on plate and top with bananas and strawberries.
