Had read some basic recipe of pancake, but tweaking is a way of cooking right! So that recipe was tweaked and here is my healthier version. Kiddos haven't had any other way than the multi-grain flour. It's my little ones favorite. You can bet that given a choice she will have that everyday for the breakfast.
Some changes to make it interesting -->
~ Adding fruits, like bits of banana's or blue berries. Little one is against finding any of it, so once her's is done I drop in few for everyone else.
~ I crush fruit loops serial in a Ziploc bag and mix it in the pancake and call it my RAINBOW pancake. :)
~ While dropping the mixture on hot pan, use a small spoon and drop one after the other to give a swirling effect on the pancake as above.
Prep Time : 5 min | Cooking Time : 2 minutes each | Serves: 4

Baking Soda - 1 tsp. (optional) - I skip mostly

Buttermilk - 1/2 cup (Or Yogurt - 2 tbsp.- Beat with 1 tbsp of water)
Olive oil - 1 tbsp.
Milk - 1/2 cup (more if required for consistency)
Method of Preparation:
~ In a large bowl, sift together the flour, salt and sugar.
~ In another bowl, beat egg. Make a well in the center and pour in egg, buttermilk and olive oil.
