Apple Pecan Multigrain Pancake

Know what you Eat - Apples are rich in antioxidants , fiber, flavonoids and help to maintain a heart-healthy diet. Flavonoids unique to apple - including phloridzin - are thought to play a potentially key role in the special ability of apples to support lung health. Pecans are a very good source of Vitamin E. Oats are an excellent source of iron, dietary fiber and thiamin. Whole wheat is rich in dietary fiber and is good source of iron. Brown rice is good source of complex carbohydrate. It provides 15 essential nutrients, including B-vitamins, niacin and potassium. Buckwheat contains almost 86 milligrams of magnesium in a one-cup serving. Magnesium relaxes blood vessels, improving blood flow and nutrient delivery while lowering blood pressure-the perfect combination for a healthy cardiovascular system. Chia seeds are very good source of omega - 3, dietary fiber, antioxidants.

I normally don't use all purpose flour and try to come up with different recipes substituting it, when i first tried this recipe i was little hesitant to mix all these flour together as there is no all purpose flour and sometimes they might stick to the griddle, but the Chia powder i added binds it together and makes it easy to prepare the pancake. I use powdered chia in most of these mix grain/flour experiments and it really helps. I have made this multigrain pancake couple of times and it comes out really great.

Thanks all for your comments. Nithya i don't know if chia powder is available, but you can buy Chia seeds and powder them or soak and use them as egg substitute. Pooja brown rice flour can be found in the baking isle along with all the other whole grain flours.
