My fabulous pancake recipe is what's cooking!

We love pancakes at our house!
I found this recipe in a magazine about 7 years ago and have been playing with it ever since.

What is so fabulous about them? They are fresh! They are not out of a box that begins with the letter B. They have texture! They are real pancakes!

You can eat them with maple syrup or you can get crazy and throw some bananas and crushed walnuts on top with the maple syrup! My kids love them with syrup or jam. Or our newest love is PB & J - yep, adding some yummy protein in the morning and smearing Peanut butter on the first pancake and jam on the top. m m m .

Jenna's fabulous pancakes!

1 cup red wheat flour
1 cup white wheat flour (any combination of flour you want)
2 T. Flax meal
1 cup quick oats
1 cup rolled oats
4 t. baking powder
1/2 t. sea salt
Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl, make a hole in center,
then add:

2 cups Milk
rice, almond, cow, whatever kind of milk you like
1 cup water
1/4 cup oil (replacing the entire 1/4 c. with applesauce works great)
1/4 cup honey (maple syrup is yummy too)
After adding the liquids to the center, combine with whisk. Add a little more water if the batter is too thick. Spray griddle then cook on medium heat until the bubbles appear on the first side and then they are not burned on the second. You know what I mean.
*Can be cooked, stuck in the fridge and then reheated in a toaster oven. I have also had ladies tell me that they leave the batter in the fridge and make them fresh every morning. I have made a batch the night before, parked them in the fridge overnight and they are sooo divine the next morning.

Guten Appetit - Jenna

ps. I added salt to the original recipe - yes, it needed it.

pps. Yesterday I used Bob's Red Mill Whole wheat pastry flour for the entire two cups and it was good! You know? Trying to get rid of so much "white" at our house.
