This is the best Whole Wheat Pancakes recipe! This delicious and fluffy pancake recipe has hints of irresistible vanilla and cinnamon and is a healthy option since it uses whole wheat flour. You’ll never make regular pancakes again!
Truth is, I’ve been using the same pancake recipe for longer than I could admit. It’s one that calls for few but basic ingredients. Yet since we’ve started making small switches to our meals to make them healthier options, I recently studied my go-to recipe for pancakes and decided it was due for an overhaul.
I realized that I could easily make my recipe one I could feel better about with the addition of wheat.
Opting to use whole wheat flour in everyday recipes, like this one for pancakes – is a simple switch for the good. Wheat is a great source of fibre and can aid to normalize bowel movements and help overall gut health. It also lowers cholesterol levels, helps to control blood sugar levels, makes you feel full longer, contains essential vitamins and minerals, and aids in achieving healthy weight.
In other words, consuming wheat and grains can help you live longer, lose weight and lower your risk for type 2 diabetes. It’s life’s simple ingredient that you can feel good about.
My home province of Alberta has 50.3 million acres of productive farm land alone, and our wheat that has been fuelling our lives for centuries. Not only a versatile staple, this simple ingredient is also cost effective as well. How’s that for a win-win!
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups milk
4 tbsp butter, melted
- Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl, and whisk to combine. The batter will be thick. yet you can add 1-2 tbsp of milk if you’d prefer it to be a thinner batter.
- Heat a skillet over medium heat, and spray surface with cooking spray.
- Pour batter onto skillet in desired size. When bubbles start to appear on the top of the pancakes, flip and cook the other side.
- Serve with syrup, and fruit if desired. I love this recipe with bananas on top, yet berries would be delicious too.
Makes 4 servings.
