For my first recipe, I wanted to start off with something everybody loves, and more importantly, something that’s hard for me to mess up. And you’re talking to a girl that falls walking up the stairs.
Pancakes. Good old pancakes.
This is the recipe for those times when Google is being difficult and you just want plain whole wheat oatmeal pancakes. Not partially whole wheat, not banana, and not buttermilk (I never have it).
Unlike what most would think, these pancakes are not dense, instead they’re light and fluffy, and you can do whatever you want with them. Throw in some chocolate chips, blueberries, cinnamon, make ’em yours.
Makes about 10 3-inch pancakes
- 1 cup whole wheat or white whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup oats
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk (any type-I used almond)
- dash of vanilla
- Combine all of the dry ingredients in a bowl, then add wet ingredients. Make sure not to over mix, and add a little bit more milk to thin out the batter if necessary.
- Heat up a skillet, make sure to use some non-stick spray, and making sure that the pan is hot, pour in the batter. Watch it bubble and then flip it-you know how it goes.
Happy maple syrup pouring!
