Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes

Posted by Vanessa in Cooking, April 2, 2010


Because a food blog just can’t have enough pancake recipes.  Because it’s Easter weekend.  Because sometimes you want to splurge and be healthy all at the same time.  Because I love you.

I give to you a recipe for a fairly healthy pancake.  It’s extra yummy too.  Especially when you stop being a cheapskate and actually buy real maple syrup instead of the fake stuff.   Seriously, what an excellent way to spend an extra $5.  And it’s so healthy for you.

My daughter’s Curious George book taught me that.

And these whole wheat buttermilk pancakes were awesome topped with fresh strawberries.  Yum.  What a great way to start this very special weekend.

(Note:  Lately I’ve been adding 1/2 cup oats to the dry ingredients and sprinkling frozen blueberries on top of the batter after I spoon it into the skillet.  Extra healthy, extra YUM!)
