Oatmeal and whole wheat flour give these nutty pancakes a fibre boost. Enjoy them plain or topped with fresh fruit.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup(s) uncooked old fashioned oats

  • 1 cup(s) whole wheat flour

  • 1 cup(s) all-purpose flour

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1⁄2 tsp table salt

  • 2 cup(s) low-fat buttermilk

  • 2 large egg(s)

  • 2 Tbsp packed brown sugar, dark variety

  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 3 spray(s) cooking spray

Instructions

  1. Preheat grill to medium.

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together oats, both flours, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. In a large bowl, whisk together buttermilk, eggs, sugar, melted butter and vanilla extract. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients; fold to just combine.

  3. Coat a large nonstick griddle or pan with cooking spray; heat over medium to medium-high heat. Spoon batter into pan using 75ml (1/3-cup) batter for each pancake; cook until lightly browned, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Place pancakes on a baking tray in a warm oven (to keep hot); repeat with remaining ingredients (being careful not to spray cooking spray into an open flame). Yields 2 pancakes per serving.

Notes

These pancakes are dense. Thin the batter out with a little water, if desired. Make these mini pancakes by using 2 tablespoons of batter at a time (will change portion size and PointsPlus value).
