Starting off with the most important meal of the day to get you fueled up. Featured Fit Girl Recipe of the week- Multi gran Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Ingredients

3/4 cup oat bran
1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup plain whole-milk yogurt
1/4 cup milk
1 large egg
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/3 cup miniature chocolate chips
Maple syrup, optional

Preparation

1. In a large bowl, combine oat bran, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a medium bowl, whisk yogurt, milk, egg and oil to combine. Pour yogurt mixture into oat bran mixture and stir until not quite combined (you should still see lumps of flour). Fold in chocolate chips until just mixed. Let stand 10 minutes. Preheat oven to 200ºF.
2. Preheat a griddle or large skillet over medium-low heat. Mist with cooking spray (or brush with melted butter) and drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls. Cook until underside is golden (gently lift with a spatula to check), 2 to 3 minutes. Flip pancakes and cook until browned on other side, about 1 minute longer. Keep pancakes warm on a heatproof plate in oven while cooking remaining pancakes. Pass warm maple syrup at the table with pancakes, if desired.
