Cornmeal Flapjacks

Cornmeal Flapjacks

Enjoy these sunny golden pancakes with fruit preserves, fresh fruit, or maple syrup.


Makes 16 3-inch pancakes

1 cup fortified nondairy milk (soy, rice, almond, etc.)
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
1/2 teaspoon sodium-free baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
Spray of vegetable oil


In a large bowl, mix nondairy milk, maple syrup, and vinegar. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, stir together cornmeal, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to nondairy milk mixture, stirring just enough to remove any lumps and make a pourable batter. Add a bit more nondairy milk if batter seems too thick.

Preheat a nonstick skillet or griddle, then spray lightly with vegetable oil. Pour small amounts of batter onto the heated surface and cook until tops bubble. Turn carefully with a spatula and cook the second side until browned, about 1 minute. Serve immediately.
