Fluffy Whole Wheat Pancakes

April 19th, 2012 | Posted by Angela Roberts in Breakfast | Recipes

Who doesn’t love pancakes?  I grew up on out of the box Bisquick pancakes, those are really good but I am sure the list of ingredients goes on and on.  My kids love pancakes and I love to make homemade whole wheat pancakes for them.  I often make Mickey Mouse pancakes, Star Wars pancakes, pancakes spelling their name and sometimes plain ‘ol silver dollars.  However they are shaped homemade whole wheat pancakes are a favorite in our home!

Start your day out with the force!

I love to bring an early morning smile to my kids.  However, sometimes I don’t want to take the time to whip up a batch of homemade pancakes.  In order to save some time, and start my day out on more of a mellow note, I double or sometimes triple my batch so that I can refrigerate freeze a few batches for a lazy morning in the future.

When refirgerating or freezing these whole wheat pancakes I cook them first then layer them, with a cloth napkin in between each one to prevent sticking, then place them in a Pyrex dish in the freezer.  When you want to serve them just pull out the desired amount and place in a toaster oven.  In just a few minutes you can serve delicious homemade pancakes!

The following recipe makes about 8-10 pancakes depending on the size that you make.  It easily doubles or triples.

Here is what you need:

3/4 cup milk (I use almond milk), 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, 2 tablespoons , 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, 1 egg, 2 tablespoons melted butter + 1 tablespoon butter  *I use organic items

I understand that this recipe is not 100% real food but it is a treat that my kids love!

Here is what you do:

Combine flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.  Whisk egg, 2 tablespoons melted butter, and milk together in a large bowl.  Pour the flour mixture into the wet mixture and whisk until all of the lumps are gone.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter.  Pour cupfuls of batter onto the skillet and cook until bubbles appear on the surface.  Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side.

 

Enjoy!
