Nutty Whole-Wheat Cinnamon Pancakes


3/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted and cooled
1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup whole-wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon table salt
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus extra for pan
2 large eggs
2 cups low-fat milk
garnish: maple syrup


In a food processor, pulse walnuts to the texture of cookie crumbs. Set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients; then stir in walnuts. In a separate bowl, whisk together butter and eggs; then drizzle in milk and whisk well. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients; then stir until just blended. Let batter rest 8–10 minutes.

Heat a lightly buttered griddle or cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Ladle in batter. Cook 2 minutes on one side, until bubbles begin to appear on the surface. Flip pancakes and cook 2 minutes longer, or until browned.

Repeat with remaining batter. Serve with maple syrup.
