This is a great way to start a healthy Saturday morning. You can top these with cut-up berries and a little lite syrup or applesauce. This batter even keeps for a couple days in the refrigerator if you want to make extra!
Makes 6 servings
2 eggs, beaten
1 3/4 cups skim milk
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup flax seed meal (ground flax seed)
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup all purpose flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar or honey
1/4 tsp salt
1. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, oil, applesauce, and vanilla. Beat in whole wheat flour, flax seed meal, wheat germ, all-purpose flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt until batter is smooth.
