With this whole-grain mix on hand, you can enjoy homemade pancakes on busy weekday mornings. This is also a great item to pack on camping trips. Be sure to refrigerate or freeze the mix as flaxseed meal is highly perishable.

  • To make one batch of pancakes: Combine 1 1/2 cups nonfat milk, 1/4 cup canola oil and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in a glass measuring cup.

  • Place 2 cups pancake mix in a large bowl. (Refrigerate the remaining pancake mix in an airtight container for up to 1 month or freeze for up to 3 months.) Make a well in the center of the pancake mix. Whisk in the milk mixture until just blended; do not overmix. (The batter will seem quite thin, but will thicken up as it stands.) Let stand for 5 minutes.

  • Coat a nonstick skillet or griddle with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Whisk the batter. Using 1/4 cup batter for each pancake, cook pancakes until the edges are dry and bubbles begin to form, about 2 minutes. Turn over and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes longer. Adjust heat as necessary for even browning. Makes 6 servings, 2 pancakes each.

These are unbelievable! I These are unbelievable! I tweaked mine just a touch based on what I had on hand... added a few tablespoons of toasted wheat germ I had to substitute meringue powder for the powdered egg whites just a touch of cinnamon and tossed in a few tablespoons of oat bran just because. You can dress these up by adding blueberries and/or walnuts to the batter just before they go in the pan. I also layered sliced bananas between them and couldn't quit eating them. Three or four lasted me until mid-afternoon for fuel. I need no other recipe. Read More

Since I am sensitive to cows milk and other dairy products I use almond milk in the ingredients with very good results. Also adding chopped walnuts (or any kind of nuts) makes a tasty and nourishing meal. I do not use syrups. If I want a sweet topping it's seedless jam. Read More
