These are not only the the best tasting pancakes I’ve ever had, but also the healthiest, and I’ve tasted way more than my fair share of pancakes. —Cookhacker

  • 1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Organic Whole Grain High Fiber Hot Cereal with Flaxseed, ground
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon Flax seed, ground
  • 1/4 cup Walnuts, chopped (almonds can be substituted)
  • 10 Dates, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon (optional)
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 3 tablespoons Water
  • 1 tablespoon Canola or Vegetable Oil (to grease the pan)
  • Blueberries, Strawberries
  • 2 Large Eggs, separate whites and yolks
  • 1/4 cup Golden Raisins
In This Recipe
  1. Grind the Hot Cereal for about 20-30 seconds until it reaches a flour-like consistency, then grind the flaxseed and set both aside (a coffee grinder works really well).
  2. Beat the 2 egg whites for about 1-2 minutes until they form stiff peaks and set aside
  3. Whisk together the milk and egg yolks in a medium bowl
  4. Combine the ground cereal, baking powder, ground flaxseed, nuts, dates and raisins
  5. Add the dry mixture to the milk/egg yolk mixture and stir well to combine
  6. Stir in the ground cinnamon
  7. Gently fold in beaten egg whites
  8. If needed, stir in up to 3 tablespoons water to achieve a good pancake batter-like consistency
  9. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat until a drop of water skitters across the pan. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using about ¼ cup for each pancake.
  10. Cook until golden brown on both sides and serve topped with your favorite fruit (I prefer blueberries and strawberries), real maple syrup and a dollop of vanilla yogurt!
