Pancakes made with whole wheat and a bit of cinnamon to spice it up. This is an adaptation of a standard pancake recipe found here, on RecipeZaar.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all dry ingrediants in a bowl.
  2. Make a small depression in the center, add milk egg and vanilla. Mix until smooth. Set aside.
  3. Heat a non-stick pan over low-medium heat.
  4. Drop about 1/4 cup of batter into the middle of the pan. Leave until bubbles form around the edges, then flip. If the bottom is very dark, turn down the heat now.
  5. Cook the other side for about 1 minute, or until the puffed sides look cooked. Remove from heat immediately.
  6. Notes : It is very important that you leave the batter to sit. This lets the powder and soda work, and is what will fluff up the pancake. Butter will help a little if your pan isn't nonstick, but the whole wheat tends to stick alot more than regular flour. I cook pancakes over heat setting "3". Don't omit the soda, which I did by accident last night. It comes out as a messy, tasteless, sticky blob.

Easy and good. They passed the husband test. I made the batter then heated the pan. They fluffed up nicely and were not to heavy.

These are actually fairly quick to whip up. When I want them as a meal for myself, I half the recipe and use one egg white instead of half of an egg. They turn out delicious every single time. I will never turn to a different pancake recipe. Thanks a bunch.

My girls love these. An excellent way to get them to eat healthy. I make a large batch and freeze them for a quick breakfast.
