Fluffy Whole Wheat Pancakes

24 Jan

Lets face it…this winter has been brutal. Well, maybe not if you live in a place like Miami, Florida. But for just about everyone else, it’s been cold, dark, and snowy. And then just when you think it’s let up, it snows some more. Do yourself a favor this weekend and warm up these delicious whole wheat pancakes.

They have everything you could want in a pancake.

They are light and fluffy with a hint of sweetness.

And the best part? They are made with whole wheat flour for an added fiber boost.

I enjoyed mine with warm diced apples while my hubby opted for chocolate chips.

Stay warm!

Fluffy Whole Wheat Pancakes

Makes 12 pancakes

3/4 cup nonfat mik

2 tablespoons vinegar (I’ve used regular vinegar and apple cider vinegar with good results)

2 tablespoons butter, melted

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup whole wheat pastry flour

2 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup chocolate chips (optional)

1. Preheat a griddle to medium high heat. Combine milk and vinegar in a medium bowl and let sit for 5 minutes. Add melted butter, egg and vanilla. Whisk to combine.

2. In a separate medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk together to combine.

3. Add milk mixture to flour mixture and mix just until combined. There will be lumps in the batter.

4. Lightly spray griddle with cooking spray. Pour batter using a 1/4 cup measure onto griddle. Flip pancakes when edges are firm and the center begins to bubble. Continue to cook until lightly browned. To keep warm, place pancakes on a cooling rack fitted on a baking sheet. Place baking sheet in a 200 degree oven.

Warm Diced Apples

1 tablespoon butter

1 apple, peeled and diced (I used granny smith)

1 teaspoon sugar

Dash of cinnamon

1. Melt butter in a small nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Toss apples with cinnamon and sugar. Cook apples in skillet until softened.
