The perfect pancake

Here's a great new spin on an old breakfast dish. Try these perfect pancakes, courtesy of Chef Nancy Waldeck with Cancer Wellness at Piedmont.


  • 1 cup canned cannellini beans, drained and rinsed well

  • 1/2 cup regular oats

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/3 cup honey

  • 1/2 cup skim milk

  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour

  • 1.5 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/4 teaspoon table salt


  • In a blender or food processor, combine the oatmeal and beans. Process until combined. Add the eggs, honey and milk, and process again until well blended.

  • In another bowl, toss together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the bean mixture and stir with a fork until just blended  a few lumps are fine.

  • Preheat a non-stick griddle or skillet. Drop by 1/4 cup full onto pan preheated on medium high heat. Cook for about 2 minutes for the first side. It will be ready to flip when the edges are set, and bubbles appear. Turn and cook the second side for about 1 minute. When done, perfect pancakes may be “browner" in color than other pancakes.
