Whole Wheat Pancakes

Whole Wheat Pancakes
By Natasha Atkerson
Breakfast is a healthy way to start your day! Here’s a healthy recipe for a delicious breakfast treat!
2 1/2 Cups of whole wheat flour
4 teaspoons of baking powder
1 egg
1 egg white
2 cups of milk or powdered milk. (some powdered milk is fat free and you can’t tell the difference!)
1 teaspoon of salt
2 tablespoons of sugar or 1 tablespoon of honey
Whisk flour and baking soda together in a bowl, set aside. In another bowl (large) beat egg, egg white, milk, salt and sugar (or honey). Now dump the flour and baking soda in with the wet ingredients. Whisk until mixed. You may need to add extra water to the recipe-the batter should be substantial enough to “ooze” off the spoon, but not so runny it streams. Grease a skillet or pan, and use a ladle for the batter. The ladle should be almost full. Pour the batter on pan in shape of pancake, making circular motions. The pancake will get bubbly, check to see if you can flip it. Cook until golden brown. Don’t get frustrated if they don’t come out perfect-especially if you haven’t done them before! Practice makes perfect!
Serve with a side of fruit and maybe some potatoes or low fat cottage cheese.
