Scrumptious Saturday - Whole Wheat Pancakes

People think Bisquick makes pancakes so much easier. I just don't get it. You're still adding all of your liquid ingredients. It basically saves you from adding baking powder and salt. It's just as easy and so much healthier to make your own from scratch. (And don't get me started on the frozen ones - All I'll say is that I've never bought them.)

1 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp Honey
3 Tbsp Oil
1 Cup Buttermilk (I used plain unsweetened yogurt, or you can let 1 tbsp lemon juice or white vinegar sit in a glass of milk for 5 minutes as a substitute)
2 Large eggs

Stir honey and oil together in bowl.

Add milk and eggs, beat well.

Mix dry ingredients into the liquid just until moistened.

Cook on a lightly greased griddle/pan over medium heat. Flip when little bubbles start popping up on the edges. Cook for 1-2 minutes more.

It's just so easy and the nutrition is astounding.

If you get 8 pancakes out of this batch, eating 2 of them will give you the following nutrition:

270 calories
14 grams of fat (2.5 saturated)
250mg potassium
3.7 grams of fiber
9.3 grams of protein
Only 7.6 grams of sugar

Other brands of frozen pancakes have around DOUBLE the sugar as well as less nutrients. Try this one! You can even freeze you're own for easy breakfast during the week!

  1. I'm going to try these! I keep buying the Bob's Red Mill high fiber/high protein Pancake/Waffle Mix and this has just as much protein as that does.
