Is there any better way to start your morning than a stack of warm pancakes?

The orange juice in these fluffy pancakes keep them light, and adds a punch of citrus flavor. Plus, the oats add protein and fiber, making these pancakes a bit healthier. Many of the ingredients are commonly found in our warehouse, and our nutrition team often recommends this recipe to our agency partners as a healthy twist on an old favorite.

• ½ cup whole wheat flour
• ½ cup quick cooking oats
• 1 tablespoon baking powder
• ¼ teaspoon salt
• 1 large egg

• Non-stick cooking spray


1. In a large bowl, combine flour, oats, baking powder and salt.
