Whole Wheat Pancakes
Recipe type: Breakfast
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 12 pancakes
  • 1 cup (4.5 oz) of whole wheat flour - I use freshly ground
  • 1 t baking powder
  • ½ t baking soda
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • ½ t salt
  • 1 t sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of buttermilk, sour milk, or whey
  • 1 T coconut oil or butter, melted
  1. While preparing the batter, heat a cast iron skillet or griddle on the stovetop. Throw some bacon on there, if you want.
  2. Whisk together dry ingredients (flour through sugar) in a large bowl. Whisk egg to break the yolk and combine with buttermilk. Add egg mixture and oil to the dry ingredients. Whisk until just wet - it doesn't need to be smooth, a few lumps are okay.
  3. When the griddle is hot enough that a couple water drops dance on it, you are ready to cook your pancakes. I use a soup ladle to spoon the batter onto the griddle. This is when I add chocolate chips or blueberries to the pancakes. Flip when you see the bubbles start to pop. Cook for a minute or so on the second side until they are nicely browned. Enjoy!
