Bisquick Pancakes with a healthy-ish twist

I started with Bisquick’s traditional pancake recipe and took off from there.

Pancakes with fresh strawberries and whipped cream

2 cups Bisquick – Original Pancake & Baking Mix
1/4 c. Whole Wheat Graham Flour
1-1/2 c. Nonfat (skim) Milk
1 Tbsp Vanilla Powder
2 Tbsp Flax Seed, ground
6 Tbsp water

Start by mixing the flax and water in a small bowl. Set aside.

In a medium mixing bowl stir together Bisquick, graham flour, and vanilla powder. Add milk and stir briskly (or use a whisk or mixer) until mixture is mostly smooth (approximately 2 minutes). Add flax/water, mixing completely.

Spray preheated skillet lightly with spray oil. Pour by 1/4 cupfuls onto hot griddle. Cook until edges are dry. Turn; cook until golden.
