Chia Seed Buttermilk Power Pancakes

Serves 5

Ingredients:

  • 1/6 cup Chia Seeds
  • 2/3 cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
  • 1-1/2 tbsp Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • a dash of salt
  • 2/3 cup lowfat buttermilk
  • 1-1/2 tbsp liquid egg whites
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Olive Oil cooking spray

Directions:

  1. Toast chia seeds until slightly brown on medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, and then set aside.
  2. While the seeds are cooling, whisk the flour, baking powder and baking soda in a medium bowl.  Then, whisk in the sugar and salt.
  3. In a different medium bowl, whisk the milk and eggs together and then stir in the oil and vanilla. Once combined, gradually, whisk the milk mixture into the dry ingredients until combined. Do not over mix as the batter will become stiff.  Gently, fold the chia seeds into the mixture. Heat a medium, nonstick pan on medium to high heat. Spray the pan with cooking spray.
  4. Pour 1/5 cup of the batter onto the pan and flip the pancakes after little bubbles begin to form and the edges start to turn golden. Repeat and enjoy!
