Meatless Monday: 10 Grain Pancakes


You know how they claim certain store-bought shortcuts are so good there’s no reason to try from scratch?  They lie.  Exceptions are limited to puff pastry, Pillsbury Crescent Rolls (because you want them to taste like Pillsbury crescent rolls, not real rolls) and, now, Bob’s Red Mill 10 Grain Pancake Mix.

Fluffy and filling with just a hint of satisfying whole-grain grit, these pancakes take 5 minutes to make.  No harder than Bisquick, but way better tasting and much more nutritious.  Follow the “Bob’s Way” recipe on the back for a memorable Sunday morning.

The trick to making any pancake extra fluffy is separating your eggs and beating the whites into stiff peaks.  A hand mixer gets it done in 2 minutes.

Folding egg whites into batter

Combine the egg yolks, oil, milk and pancake mix then gently fold in the whites. Looks gross but this is always a fun step when you’re the one doing it.  Stop folding before the batter become homogenous.  You want to see pillows of foamy whites throughout.

That’s the layman’s poetic way of saying it.  It really looks like lumps of curdled cheese.  But it feels light and pillowy.  You’ll have to trust me until you make them yourself.

Bob’s Way 10 Grain Pancakes

Makes about 8 medium pancakes

Butter for browning

Beat egg whites until stiff.  In a medium bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients until just combined.  Gently fold in the egg whites.

    I made these a couple weeks ago! Added some strawberries and they got all carmelized and juicy. Can it be Sunday morning right now?

    I hope you’re not over-selling it because if I’m about to get out a hand mixer, it better be worth it 🙂

    @Joanna, you can use a kitchen aid instead! But yeah, I love me a hand mixer.
    @Marah, aren’t they crazy good? I was blown away. Strawberries sound amazing. I wanted to try bananas but mine were still green : (
    @Vanessa, thanks!
