Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cup(s) whole-wheat flour
  • 1 cup(s) buttermilk powder
  • 5 tablespoon(s) dried egg whites, such as Just Whites
  • 1/4 cup(s) sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon(s) baking powder
  • 2 teaspoon(s) baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1 cup(s) flaxseed meal
  • 1 cup(s) nonfat dry milk
  • 1/2 cup(s) wheat bran, or oat bran
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) nonfat milk
  • 1/4 cup(s) canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract

Preparation

  1. 1. Whisk flour, buttermilk powder, dried egg whites, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Stir in flaxseed meal, dry milk and bran. (Makes 6 cups dry mix.)
  2. 2. Combine milk, oil and vanilla in a glass measuring cup.
  3. 3. 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.
  4. 4. 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.

  5. Variations:
  6. Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Pancakes: Fold 1/2 cup cocoa powder and 3 ounces chocolate chips into the batter.
  7. Blueberry: Fold 1 cup frozen blueberries into the batter.
  8. Banana-Nut: Fold 1 cup thinly sliced bananas and 4 tablespoons finely chopped toasted pecans into the batter.
