This is a wonderful whole grain pancake recipe. It is adapted from the pancake recipe in The Joy of Cooking (the JOC recipe has 1 T more butter and uses white flour instead of whole wheat flour). I don't recommend whole wheat baking without using a wheat grinder... there is such a huge difference in quality, performance, and taste if you buy whole wheat flour instead of using a wheat grinder to mill whole wheat. I have tried both. This is an investment that can help you enjoy healthy, delicious, whole grain foods for years to come! Another thing to know about whole wheat flour versus freshly milled whole wheat is that the freshly milled whole wheat is much more nutrient rich than "whole wheat flour". Wheat is like fruit, once you cut it open, you can't leave it out for a long time because its quality immediately begins to deteriorate. I do believe you can freeze freshly milled wheat and preserve the nutrients.
