Oatmeal and Cream of Wheat Pancakes… a tasty healthy alternative

Isn't it purdy? :)

Isn’t it purdy? πŸ™‚

If you’re like me, you loooooove buttermilk pancakes with a passion. Its a weakness. But what to do if you’re trying to eat cleaner and healthier? Buttermilk pancakes on the regular won’t fit into that equation, moving into the “once in a while treat” zone.

Here’s a healthier, lower in fat version of the real deal, using whole grain ingredients like oatmeal and cream of wheat and nonfat milk instead of buttermilk.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup dry Cream of Wheat
  • 1/4 cup dry oatmeal (1 minute quick cook variety)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup nonfat milk
  • 1 tsp sugar (optional)
  • pinch of salt (optional)
  • powdered cinnamon (optional)

Directions: Combine dry ingredients in a bowl, then add in egg and milk and mix again. Let the mixture sit and heat up the pan with your choice of cooking spray or 2 tsp canola oil. When the pan is heated up, pour in half of the mixture. It’ll be pretty thick so you’ll have to spread it around a bit in the pan for a thinner pancake. Flip over when browned. Yields: 2 large pancakes.

Enjoy… I sure did πŸ™‚
