EatingWell reader Kathy Moseler of Barrington Hills, Illinois, contributed this convenient recipe to our Kitchen to Kitchen department. The pancakes are made with 100 percent whole-wheat flour and get an additional fiber boost from flaxseed meal.


  • 1 1/2 cups skim or 1% milk
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups Healthy Pancake Mix (see recipe link above)

Companion recipe: Healthy Pancake Mix


Combine the milk, oil and vanilla in a glass measuring cup. Place the Healthy Pancake Mix in a large bowl and make a well in the center. Whisk in the milk mixture until just blended; do not overmix. (The batter will seem quite thin, but will thicken up as it stands.) Let stand for 5 minutes.

Coat a nonstick skillet or griddle with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Whisk the batter. Using 1/4 cup batter for each pancake, cook the pancakes until the edges are dry and bubbles begin to form, about 2 minutes. Turn over and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes longer. Adjust heat as necessary for even browning.


Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Pancakes: Fold 1/2 cup cocoa powder and 3 ounces chocolate chips into the batter.

Blueberry: Fold 1 cup frozen blueberries into the batter.

Banana-Nut: Fold 1 cup thinly sliced bananas and 4 tablespoons finely chopped toasted pecans into the batter.
