Cookhacker's Best (and Healthiest) Pancakes Ever

1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Organic Whole Grain High Fiber Hot Cereal with Flaxseed, ground

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 tablespoon flax seed, ground

2 eggs, separate whites and yolks

¼ cup golden raisins, coarsely chopped

¼ cup walnuts, chopped (almonds can be substituted)

10 dates, chopped

1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

½ cup milk

3 tablespoons water

Canola or vegetable oil to grease pan


1.       Grind the Hot Cereal for about 20-30 seconds and grind the flaxseed and set aside (a coffee grinder works really well)

2.       Beat the 2 egg whites for about 1-2 minutes until they form stiff peaks and set aside

3.       Whisk together the milk and egg yolks in a medium bowl

4.       Combine the cereal, baking powder, ground flaxseed, nuts, dates and raisins

5.    Add the dry mixture to the milk/egg yolk mixture and stir well to combine

5.       Stir in 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

6.       Gently fold in beaten egg whites

7.       Stir in up to 3 tablespoons water as needed to get a good pancake batter consistency

8.      Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat until a drop of water skitters across the pan. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using about ¼ cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve topped with your favorite fruit and real maple syrup
