Food Ideas

Dear- "I Heart Food & So Can You" readers,

As you've noticed, we haven't posted many recipes lately...sorry about that! Don't worry, we haven't forgotten about the blog, we just haven't cooked as often as we used to in the past few weeks. This is about to change. We would like to post some new, some old, and some tried & true recipes but need some suggestions. Please comment and let us know what you would like recipes for or some recipes you've tried that you would like showcased on our blog. We are really excited to hear your suggestions!

Yours truly,

Whole Wheat Pancakes

Sometimes there is nothing better than having breakfast for dinner, and sometimes its nice to get a little extra fiber in your diet! :) I got this recipe from my friend J and I was really surprised by how good they turned out. Usually when you make something with whole wheat it comes out dense and heavy, but by whipping the egg whites it keeps these light and fluffy. I ate them with some Strawberry Syrup which made them even more delectable!

1 1/2 C whole wheat flour
1TBS baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
3 TBS sugar
2 eggs, separated
1 1/2 C milk
3 TBS olive oil

Mix together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.

Stir together the milk, egg yolks and oil, and add to the dry ingredients. Beat for 2 minutes.

In a separate bowl beat the eggs whites until the form stiff peaks. Gently fold the egg whites into the batter just until mixed.

Preheat and grease a griddle. Pour the batter onto the griddle. Cook the pancake until the bubbles begin to pop and then flip it over.

When the pancakes are done you can spread a little butter on top and the serve them while they are hot.

These pancakes are healthy and delicious and make a great breakfast or a great breakfast for dinner! Hope you enjoy them as much as we did.
