  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup barley flour
  • 1/4 cup quick cooking oats
  • 2 tbsp wheat bran
  • 1.5 cups yogurt
  • 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 3 large bananas, mashed
  • 1 large apple, finely grated and mixed with 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Step by Step:

  1. Mix oats with 1/4 cup milk and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, sift all the flours and wheat bran till no lumps remain. Add the oat and milk mixture to this, along with yogurt and egg. Mix well till it resembles pancake batter. If you find the mixture too thick, add more milk.
  2. Fold in the bananas, apples, walnuts, and baking powder and let the batter rest for five minutes.
  3. In the meantime, heat a non stick frying pan on medium low heat. Drop a ladle full of batter on the frying pan and allow it to spread. Add one tsp of cooking oil around the pancake and allow it to cook until bubbles appear on the sides. Flip over and cook on the other side until done. Keep the heat at medium low throughout the cooking process.
  4. Serve hot, with honey and a glass of milk.
