  • 1 cup quick-cooking (not instant) rolled oats
  • 2 1/2 cup skim milk
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon, nutmeg or cloves
  • 3 egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla or almond extract
  • 1 coating of canola-oil cooking spray


In a medium-sized bowl, blend together the oats and milk and let stand for 10 minutes.

In a large bowl, combine whole-wheat flour, unbleached flour, wheat germ, sugar, baking powder, salt, and spice. Mix well.

Add egg white and vanilla (or almond) extract to oat mixture and stir together. Add to the flour mixture and stir until moistened but with small lumps remaining. Do not over-mix. Let mixture stand in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Preheat a non-stick pan or griddle coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Working in batches, pour 1/4 cup batter for each pancake onto hot pan. Cook 3 to 4 minutes or until top starts to bubble and bottom is browned. Turn and cook 1 to 2 minutes longer, or until golden brown. Makes 18 pancakes.
