Low GI Pancakes

August 10, 2010

I love pancakes. There I said it, maybe its the Dutch blood, or the fact that my mom made awesome pancakes with soup whenever it rained, or maybe I’m just a pancake girl. Either way, I love them. I just hate the effort in preparing and baking them. Esspecially with just the two of us (ok almost 3), its alot of effort. This recipe however, is easy, small, very filling and super healthy. I got it from the Eating for Sustained Energy 2 cookbook – a very worthwhile buy. It makes 6 pancakes, which is more than enough for 2 people and it multiplies easily.

1 egg
5ml oil (I use olive)
1 ml vinegar
185ml cake flour
1 ml salt
60ml oat bran (this makes it low GI)
250ml low fat milk
5 ml baking powder

Beat the egg, oil and vinegar together in a bowl. In another bowl, sift the flour and salt together and add the oat bran (don’t try sift that…). Lift up a few time to incorporate air.
Add the dry ingredients in about 3 batches to the egg and oil mixture, alternating with the milk. Beat after each addtion, but no longer than 1 minute each time.
Add baking powder and gently stir in. Leave to stand for a few minutes to let the oat bran hydrate. Add some milk if the batter is too thick.
Fry in spray and cook, in a medium pan. Serve with mince or chicken or some cinnamon sugar and lemon juice.
