A "heart-healthy" recipe

These pancakes deserve the raves they get, both for taste and for nutrition.

  • 1 cup white flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ, toasted with honey
  • 1 1/4 cups skim milk
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese
Sift together flour, baking powder and sugar. Add wheat germ. Combine the milk and oil and stir into the dry ingredients until just moistened. Stir in cottage cheese only until mixture is slightly lumpy. (If a smooth batter is desired, you may whip the cottage cheese with the liquid ingredients in a blender.) Drop batter by spoonfuls onto a greased pan. Cook until bubbles appear on upper surface, then turn and brown on the other side. Turn only once. Continue until all batter is used. Serve with maple syrup.

YIELD: 10 4-inch pancakes

Approx. cal/ser.: 1 pancake = 115
