Sweet and tasty: whole-grain pancakes with fresh fruit and yogurt

Recipe: whole-grain pancakes with fresh fruit and yogurt

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes

Makes: 12 pancakes


  • 250 g (1 c) whole-wheat flour
  • 50 g (1⁄4 c) rolled oats
  • 15 ml (1 tbsp) toasted wheat germ
  • 30 ml (2 tbsp) brown sugar
  • 10 ml (2 tsp) baking powder
  • 2 egg whites
  • 250 ml (1 c) 1% low-fat milk
  • 300 ml (1 1/4 c) plain nonfat yogurt
  • 500g (2 cc) raspberries or blueberries
  • Salt to taste

Cooking steps

  1. In large bowl, mix flour, oats, wheat germ, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, beat milk and 125 ml (1/2 c) yogurt with egg whites. Add to flour mixture and stir quickly (until dry ingredients are moist).
  2. Spray nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat on stove (until hot). Do not use cooking spray near flame. Measure 50 g (1/4 c) of batter for each pancake and pour into hot skillet, making 3 or 4 pancakes at a time.
  3. When bubbles show on top, lift pancakes with a spatula. If browned underneath, turn over and cook until other side is golden brown.
  4. Transfer pancakes onto heated platter. Serve with raspberries and remaining yogurt. If not serving at once, cover and keep warm on low temp in oven.

More ideas: variety at breakfast

  • Try buckwheat flour for a nutty flavor in place of whole-wheat flour.
  • For a corn flavor, use 75 g (1/3 c) cornmeal in place of some of the whole-wheat flour.
  • Keeping pancakes in the freezer allows for a nice, healthy change from morning cereal.
