Four Grain Pancakes



Serving size

2 pancakes with 2 tsp butter and 1 Tbsp maple syrup
30 Minutes

This recipe can easily be multipled or halved. Leftover pancakes aren’t very good. The batter will keep overnight but the pancakes will not be as good.

Four Grain Pancakes


6 Tbsp. Whole wheat flour
6 Tbsp. Enriched all purpose white flour
3 Tbsp. Yellow cornmeal
1/8 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Baking powder
1 Tbsp. Z-Sweet / Stevia
6 Tbsp. Oatmeal (old-fashioned style)
1 cup Reduced fat buttermilk
1 large Egg(s)
2 large Egg white(s)
4 tsp.. Unsalted butter (2 tsp. per serving)
2 Tbsp. Maple syrup (1 Tbsp per serving)


Sift the whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, corn meal, salt and baking powder into a large mixing bowl.

Fold in the oatmeal.

Add the buttermilk and egg substitute and blend well until mixture is smooth.

Heat a non-stick griddle over medium-high heat. Let the batter stand for at least 2 minutes while the griddle is heating. Stir once and wait another minute before placing batter on the griddle.

When the griddle is hot enough that a few drops of water will dance on the surface, reduce the heat to medium and place about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake on the griddle.

Cook until small bubbles on the surface of the pancake form and then burst. Turn and cook for about 1/2 the time that the pancakes cooked on the first side.

Remove and top with one teaspoon of butter on each pancake and serve one tablespoon of pure maple syrup for every two pancakes.
