Mixed Grain Griddlecakes

Whole grain pancakes

These vegan pancakes are made with a variety of flours and meals — cornmeal, whole wheat, and more — making for a hearty stack.

Yield: Six 5-inch pancakes; 2 servings

  • ½ cup cornmeal
  • ¼ cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons wheat germ
  • 2 tablespoons soy or garbanzo flour
  • 2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
  • 2½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1¼ cups nondairy milk
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 1 banana, sliced, optional
  • A handful of walnuts or pecans for topping, optional
  • Maple syrup for serving

Combine the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Add the soy milk, maple syrup and oil. Stir gently until dry ingredients are completely moistened. Let stand a few minutes, until the batter absorbs the liquid and thickens. Stir in the banana, if desired.

Pour batter by generous ¼ cupfuls onto a hot oiled or non-stick griddle. Cook until the bottom is golden. Turn and cook the other side. Repeat until all batter is cooked; keep pancakes warm until all are done.

Garnish with a handful of walnuts and pecans, if desired, and serve with maple syrup.
