Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium bowl, stir together flour, oat bran, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir in milk and oil just until combined.

  • In a small bowl, beat egg whites with an electric mixer on medium speed until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight); fold into batter (small mounds of egg white will remain).

  • Lightly coat an unheated griddle or large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat over medium heat. For each pancake, spoon 1/4 cup of the batter onto hot griddle or skillet; if necessary, spread to a 4-inch circle. Cook about 2 minutes on each side or until pancakes are golden brown, turning to second sides when pancakes have bubbly surfaces and edges are slightly dry.

  • Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat syrup product until warm. Stir in orange peel. Serve syrup mixture with pancakes. If desired, serve with orange wedges.


Variation: Blueberry-Oat Bran Pancakes: Prepare as directed, except after putting batter on the hot griddle, sprinkle 1/2 cup fresh blueberries evenly atop pancakes. Continue as directed.

Used skim milk but added 4 tbsp. buttermilk powder with dry ingredients and added shredded orange peel to mix instead of syrup. They were light and airy yet satisfying and delicious. Added a few blueberries to some of the pancakes they were great either way. Definitely a keeper. Read More
