2 servings, pancakes each


  • ½ cup fresh cranberries

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons whole-wheat flour

  • 1 tablespoon yellow cornmeal

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • ½ teaspoon baking powder

  • teaspoon salt

  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg, or 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 6 tablespoons nonfat milk

  • 2 tablespoons pasteurized egg substitute, such as Egg Beaters

  • 1 ½ teaspoons walnut or canola oil


  1. Bring 2 inches of water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add cranberries; boil for 2 minutes. Drain and cool for 5 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, whisk all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, salt and nutmeg (if using) in a large bowl.

  3. Whisk milk, egg substitute, oil and vanilla (if using) in a small bowl until combined.

  4. Coarsely chop the cranberries; stir into the milk mixture. Stir the milk mixture into the dry ingredients just until combined.

  5. Coat a griddle or large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Using 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake, cook 2 pancakes at a time until bubbles dot the surface, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and continue cooking until browned, 1 to 2 minutes more. Repeat with the remaining batter.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
