Mid-Week Cooking: Whole Wheat Pancakes


I have been wanting to make Liv some healthy pancakes for a while now, and finally gave it a try this weekend when the men were wanting breakfast for dinner. I looked through a few recipes and chose this one from allrecipes.com. We found we needed to add a little more milk than the recipe called for. They were so good I didn’t even put syrup on them! I will be making them again soon. I think next time I may add wheat germ and flax to make them even healthier. (Shhh, don’t tell Craig.)

Whole Wheat Pancakes

1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oatmeal
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1/3 cup sugar
3 tablespoons chopped walnuts (optional)

1. Grind the oats in a blender or food processor until fine. In a large bowl, combine ground oats, whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
2. In another bowl, combine buttermilk, milk, oil, egg, and sugar with an electric mixer until smooth. Mix wet ingredients into dry with a few swift strokes. Stir in nuts, if desired.
3. Lightly oil a skillet or griddle, and preheat it to medium heat. Ladle 1/3 cup of the batter onto the hot skillet; cook the pancakes for 2 to 4 minutes per side, or until brown.

Next… Baby Granola Bars. I was going to include that on this post, but I’m not sure yet that they turned out and may need a second go at it.
