Recipe: Orange Oatmeal Pancakes
Makes six servings (One serving is two 4″ pancakes)
- ½ cup all-purpose flour
- ½ cup whole wheat flour
- ½ cup quick oats
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 large egg
- ¾ cup orange juice
- ½ cup nonfat milk
- 2 Tablespoons canola oil
- Non-stick cooking spray
In a large bowl, combine flours, oats, baking powder, and salt. Mix well. In another large bowl, crack the egg and beat lightly with a fork. Add orange juice, milk, and canola oil to egg and mix well. Coat a large skillet with non-stick cooking spray and heat it over medium-high heat. While the skillet is heating, add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. Do not overmix.
Pour ¼ cup batter into hot pan for each pancake. Adjust heat as needed to avoid burning. Flip pancakes when bubbles appear on top of the batter and the edges are slightly browned, about 3-4 minutes. Cook until second side is slightly browned, about 2-3 minutes more. Serve warm.
