Serve warm, sprinkled with fresh berries, a touch of powdered sugar and fat-free whipped topping for a real Sunday morning treat (for you and your arteries!).

  • 1  cup 100% whole wheat flour
  • ½  cup old-fashioned oat flakes, ground
  • ¼  cup ground flaxseeds
  • ¼ cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 ¼ cups light soy milk
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 large egg white
  • Powdered sugar, optional
  • Pancake syrup, optional

Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl to blend.

Separately combine soy milk maple syrup, and egg white in another medium bowl.

Add soymilk mixture to dry ingredients and whisk just until incorporated.

Coat a large fry pan with non-stick cooking spray. Heat pan over medium heat. Spoon in four circular pancakes about ¼ cup each. Cook until batter bubbles then flip with a spatula. Use more cooking spray when necessary. Remove from pan when golden brown in color. Sprinkle lightly with powdered sugar; add whipped topping to taste, garnish with fresh berries.
