Julie’s Whole Grain Blueberry Orange Pancakes
These are a delicious and healthy way to start the day.
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
2 tbsp wheat germ
2 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp sugar
1 cup soy, almond, hemp or rice milk
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tsp vanilla extract
Fresh or frozen blueberries, optional
1. In a large bowl, mix together the flours, wheat germ, baking powder and sugar.
2. In a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk together milk, orange juice and vanilla. Add milk mixture to flour mixture, whisking or stirring just until mixed. There may be a few lumps left, which is okay. Don't try to work all the lumps out.
3. Heat a skillet over medium high heat. Lightly oil skillet. Once skillet is hot, ladle the batter onto the skillet. Sprinkle frozen blueberries on top. When the bottoms of the pancakes are golden and bubbles begin to set around the edges, gently flip the pancakes. Continue cooking 2 to 3 minutes or until the pancakes are set. Serve pancakes immediately while hot.
Tip: Use all whole wheat pastry flour instead of the all-purpose flour.
