Ingredients & Measurements


  • 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon cornmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon granular no-calorie sucralose sweetener (e.g., Splenda ®)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 egg whites
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons plain nonfat yogurt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons skim milk
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons water

Preparation

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, oats, cornmeal, sweetener, salt, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, yogurt, milk and water. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry, and mix just until moistened.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray. Pour about 1/3 cup of batter per pancake onto the skillet. Cook until bubbles begin to form in the center, then flip and cook until browned on the other side.
