Oat and Wheat Germ Pancakes

Recipe by Chris from Kansas

These hearty and healthy pancakes come out light and toasty. The batter can be made the night before for real convenience.

These were awful. My husband took a bite and didn't want to take another. My kids suffered through it but only with copious amounts of blueberry sauce. I think this recipe might make a good bran muffin recipe, but as pancakes, they were pretty inedible. Very dry, tasteless. I followed the recipe exactly except added a little cinnamon.
