  • 1 1/4 cups nonfat milk* (128.6 mg)
  • 1 cup rolled oats or Quick Quaker Oats* (3.76 mg)
  • 2 large eggs, beaten (126 mg)
  • 1/2 cup white whole wheat or whole wheat pastry flour (3mg)
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar, packed (or 1 teaspoon Splenda) (5.382 mg)
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (trace)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (.598 mg)
  • 1 orange, grated skin only (.18 mg)
  • 2 teaspoons Ener-G Baking Soda (trace)
  • 2 teaspoons Featherweight Baking Powder (9 mg)

Best when made with low-sodium buttermilk and whole wheat pastry flour.

Stir together milk or buttermilk with rolled or Quick Quaker Oats in a bowl and let stand for 5 minutes. Add oil and beaten eggs and mix well. Stir in the flour, sugar, orange zest, cinnamon, and Ener-baking soda and Featherweight baking powder. Stir together with a wooden spoon.

Bake on hot greased griddle using 1/4 cup batter for each pancake. Pancakes will not bubble like regular pancakes. One or two maybe. Then flip to cook on other side.

* Low sodium buttermilk is available from the following:

  • Knudsen (130 mg)
  • A & P (125 mg)
  • Borden (130 mg)
  • Borden Skim-Line (150 mg)
  • Crowley (130 mg)
  • Darigold Trim (130 mg)
  • Weight Watchers (140 mg)

¹ For wheatless pancakes pour 2 cups of oats into your blender (Cuisinart™, Osterizer™ or other). Use this instead of the combined recipe of whole wheat pastry flour and rolled or Quick Quaker oats. Blending should produce 1 3/4 cups.

Spread homemade applesauce on top of cooked cakes. Quick Quaker Oats have exactly the same nutrient values as rolled oats. Also tastes great with natural maple syrup.
