I have never tried using cornmeal in pancakes before and I’ve always imagined that it would not taste as good as regular pancakes because the cornmeal will affect the texture and bite but I was surprised when I tried this recipe that I found at the packaging of Bob’s Red Mill cornmeal. The pancakes turned out soft, light and delicious, an added bonus is that they’re healthier!
This is quick to make, I used yogurt instead of buttermilk because it’s what I have in stock and I used coconut oil which gives a really delicious aroma to the pancakes. Except for those, I didn’t change anything anymore.
This is worth a try.. I promise. In fact, I have added this to my favorite pancake recipes.
Happy Cooking! :)
