Multigrain Pancakes

Not only are pancakes delicious, but they are cheap! I found this one in the August edition of magazine. They throw all kinds of fun stuff into these pancakes- a little labor intensive for me in the mornings. I like really basic pancake recipes, but the taste and the texture made up for it. They were great. I also just went ahead and made it 1 cup of whole wheat flour- why go to the trouble of measuring out that 1/4 cup? We like to top ours with a blended up can of pears. Good pancakes!

Multigrain Pancakes (
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 3 minutes
Yield: About 12 pancakes (serving size: 3 pancakes)
Cost per Serving: $.48

3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
2 tablespoons cornmeal
2 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup whole milk
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 200ºF. In a bowl, whisk together both flours, oats, cornmeal, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a small bowl, whisk milk, yogurt, butter, egg and vanilla. Stir milk mixture into flour mixture until just combined.
2. Preheat a large skillet or griddle; mist with cooking spray. Pour batter 1/4 cup at a time, spreading gently. Cook until bubbles form on tops of pancakes and bottoms are light golden, about 2 minutes. Flip pancakes and cook until light golden and cooked through, 1 minute longer. Keep pancakes warm on a plate in oven while cooking remaining flapjacks.
