Multigrain Pancakes to Fuel the Furnace

When it's ghastly cold like it's been these days (it's 13 degrees in NYC right now), all I want to do is EAT. Gotta keep the furnace fueled to stay warm!

One of my favorite recipes this time of year are Jane Brody's Multigrain Pancakes. They're super easy to make and full of good-for-you ingredients, so you can totally carb out without feeling guilty.... Yum!

Multi-Grain Pancakes
1 1/4 cups milk
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 egg whites (or 2 whole eggs)
2/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup flour
1/4 cup cornmeal
2 tablespoons wheat germ
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

Mix milk and lemon juice. Let stand 5 minutes. (Alternatively, you can use 1 ¼ c. buttermilk.)

Mix dry ingredients together.

Add eggs to milk mixture and whisk. Pour wet ingredients into dry. Whisk until just combined. Griddle up!

Great with butter and maple syrup, sautéed apples and pears, or even lentil soup, though maybe not for breakfast.

(Enjoy, Monica!!)
