Healthy Morning Pancakes with a Crunch

In My Father’s Daughter, Gwyneth Paltrow includes her father’s famous pancakes that he adapted from Joy of Cooking.  But Paltrow has her own pancake recipe: tasty and with lots of healthy ingredients.  I made a batch, using what I had on hand – yummy.

You’ll Need:

  • 1 organic egg
  • 1 1/4 cups milk (Paltrow calls for soy, but I used cow’s skim-organic)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil (I used olive oil)
  • 1 cup flour (I used spelt, but any kind will do)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons Seed Mix (see reference below)
  • 3 tablespoons plain yogurt (to give it that buttermilk flavor)
  • Real Grade B Maple Syrup, for serving
Whisk the egg, milk, and oil.  Add flour, baking powder, and seed mix until just combined; do not overbeat or you will get tough pancakes.  Fold in the yogurt.  Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Ladle as many pancakes as possible into the skillet.  When you see bubbles (about 2 minutes), flip pancakes over for another minute.  Remove pancakes to a plate and serve with plenty of maple syrup.

I added a few pineapple slices for color, and to sop up the rest of the maple syrup.
