Wheat Germ Pancakes

Wheat Germ Pancakes

Wheat germ provides a nutty flavor and boosts the iron, zinc, and folate in these pancakes. Top them with fresh berries or bananas and toasted pecans.

Cooking Light MARCH 2001

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 2 pancakes)

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup toasted or honey-crunch wheat germ
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups low-fat buttermilk
  • 2 large egg whites
  • Cooking spray

Preparation

Lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine flours and the next 4 ingredients (flours through salt) in a large bowl. Combine buttermilk and egg whites; add to flour mixture, stirring until smooth.

Spoon about 1/4 cup batter per pancake onto a hot nonstick griddle or a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray. Turn the pancakes when tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked; cook for 1 to 2 minutes more or until golden.

Note: To freeze, cool the cooked pancakes completely on a wire rack. Place in a heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag, separating the pancakes with wax paper. To reheat, microwave pancakes at high for 45 seconds, or place in the toaster at medium-high heat for 2 cycles or until hot.
