Weekend Well-Being: Whole Wheat Pancakes

Breakfast on the weekends is generally a much more relaxed affair around my house. I generally try to cook something, and lately all my girls request are pancakes. Since these have become the staple of my weekend breakfast, I found a recipe I liked (from Martha Stewart, kitchen maven) and adapted it a bit to make it a bit more healthy.

If you dig pancakes, then get cookin' and

.

Whole Wheat Pancakes
adapted from Martha Stewart's Every Day Food

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup non-fat yogurt
1/3 cup non fat milk (more to thin as needed)
2 tablespoon canola oil
1 egg

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together dry ingredients and set aside.
  2. Whisk together milk, yogurt, oil and egg. Add dry ingredients and mix until just moistened. Add more milk to make batter to your liking.
  3. Cook on oiled skillet or griddle. Use about 3 tablespoons batter per pancake.
  4. Cook until pancake surface starts to bubble and a few have burst, about 1 - 2 minutes. Flip and cook 1 - 2 minutes more.
  5. Serve with yogurt and fresh fruit and a wee bit of maple syrup. Remember: syrup is essentially liquid sugar (not quite as bad, but still...) so don't go overboard.

I really like these with Fage yogurt, mango chunks and sliced banana.

Looks delicious and is a great alternative! :D Love it! Thanks for sharing Fit! The cottage cheese does sound like a great idea too.

If you'd like to use olive oil, try extra light. When I bake, that's what I use. It doesn't leave cookies and cakes tasting like olives.

I would not use olive oil (too heavy in the taste), but any veggie oil would do (canola has omega-3's in it that is why I cook/bake with it).Yes definitely use plain yogurt.I am not sure about cottage cheese - maybe if you puree it. I think the chucks of cottage cheese would be too funky of a texture. If you try it, let me know...now I am curious. I will have to experiment.

How about substituting the yogurt for cottage cheese - makes them nice and light(don't know the right word for this?)

should you use plain yogurt? I think vanilla would be pretty tasty.
