Celebrate Random Acts of…Pancakes?!

This post will honor two events taking place this week: Today kicks off Random Acts of Kindness Week.  Why not do something special for someone?  Here’s a unique idea that combines kindness with another event: Pancake Week. Host an informal brunch sometime this week for friends, some lonely seniors, a neighbor you’d like to get to know better, or some kids who could use some TLC. Here is a healthy recipe for MULTIGRAIN PANCAKES that taste great with syrup, berries, or even ice cream. (see photo)

MULTI-GRAIN PANCAKES

¼ c white flour,  ¼ c whole wheat flour,      ¼ c quick oats (not instant) 1T wheat germ, 1T brown sugar        1 t baking powder      1 egg                ½ c + 1 T milk,  2 T oil

1. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. 2.  Combine egg, milk and oil.  Stir into dry ingredients until moist.  If mixture is too thick, thin it out with milk…one tablespoon at a time until the desired consistency.  The thinner the batter, the thinner the pancakes.  3. Pour onto hot, greased griddle.  Serve with STRAWBERRY or BLUEBERRY SYRUP.

To make syrup:  Place one pint (2 cups) of fresh or frozen berries in a blender.  Add 1 T. honey and puree until smooth.  Serve as is or warm it up in the microwave for 30 seconds and pour over the pancakes.
