So, this morning instead of having egg whites again, I decided to make this Healthy Pancakes recipe from the Thin Kitchen's cookbook that I got from Beachbody. I don't know why I've never tried this before, but they were pretty good. After tasting the first one, I decided to add a little cinnamon to them, which I liked better. Just FYI: This recipe makes about ten 5"diameter pancakes. (enough for 3-4 people)
1 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 c. wheat germ
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 c. canola oil
2 c. milk
In bowl, mix eggs with oil and milk. Stir in baking soda, wheat germ and flour; mix until blended. Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium-high heat. Pour the batter onto the griddle. Brown on both sides, turning once.
*Use fresh fruit and a small amount of real maple syrup or honey as a topping.
***I used Sugar Free Maple syrup because I haven't gotten to the store to get any "Real" maple syrup yet. The bad thing about these "pancake syrups" is that they contain corn syrup and other processed sugars that you want to avoid.
