Learn how to make Whole-Grain Breakfast Pancakes, one of Rita's family friendly, healthy recipes.

Whole-Grain Breakfast Pancakes


  • 1 cup whole wheat or white wheat flour
  • ¼ cup rolled oats, uncooked
  • 1 tablespoon toasted wheat germ
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup skim or 1% milk
  • 1¼ cups plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 cups assorted fresh berries


  1. In mixing bowl whisk together the flour, oats, wheat germ, sugar, and baking powder.
  2. In another bowl whisk together the milk and ½ cup yogurt with the egg whites. Add to the flour mixture and stir just until moistened. Batter will be lumpy – that’s okay.
  3. Coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat until hot.
  4. Measure ¼ cup batter per pancake. Pour into the hot skillet, making 3-4 pancakes at a time. When bubbles show up on the top of the pancakes, flip with a spatula. Cook until golden browned.
  5. Transfer pancakes to a serving platter. Serve pancakes with fresh berries and a dollop of yogurt. 

Make 12 pancakes.
