Pancakes are just fun, I have no idea why.  My kids love them and on the weekend (or when we’re visiting Grandma and have access to her 48″ Professional Series Thermador Range) its really not much trouble.  I gave my kids the choice between chocolate chips and blueberries and surprisingly they chose chocolate chips.  So try these out, they’re yummy and easy and whole grain.  They go great with parmesan cheese scrambled eggs.

Whole Wheat and Cornmeal Pancakes

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup low fat buttermilk
  • ½ – ¾ cup skim milk (depending on how thin you like your pancake batter)
  • 2 eggs slightly beaten
  • ½ – 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1Tbl olive oil
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips 0r 1 cup fresh blueberries (optional)

Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl.  Add buttermilk, skim milk, eggs, vanilla and olive oil.  Stir until combined.  Add chocolate chips or blueberries if using.  Preheat your skillet/griddle over medium heat (on a gas burner) until hot.  Pour batter by scant ¼ cupfuls onto nonstick skillet or griddle coated with cooking spray.  Cook until edges appear slightly dry and there are a few bubbles on surface of pancake, then turn.  Continue to cook for about 1 minute and remove from heat.  Repeat with remaining batter.   Serve with syrup or topping of choice.  Makes about 20 four inch pancakes.
