2tablespoons sugar
1tablespoon baking powder
1teaspoon salt
2-- eggs, lightly beaten
2cups 2 percent reduced-fat milk
6tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
-- Nonstick cooking spray


  1. Whisk both flours, bran, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl until uniform.  Stir in eggs, milk and melted butter until fairly smooth. Batter will be thick.
  2. Spray a large skillet or griddle with nonstick spray and heat over medium heat. Working in batches, pour 1/4 cup batter per pancake into pan. Cook 2 minutes, until tops begin to bubble and edges look cooked. Flip, then cook until lightly browned and set, about 1 minute. Remove pancakes from skillet; repeat with remaining batter, spraying the pan between batches as necessary.
