This is just about the easiest healthy pancake recipe that you will find!
Serves 8 (If you have leftovers, you can put them in the refrigerator or in the freezer & heat as needed. I put them in ‘serving sizes’ in plastic baggies in the freezer & they are ready for each person whenever they want one for breakfast during the week. Or cut this recipe in half for 4 of you).
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1 cup quick cooking oats
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons wheat germ (optional)
1 teaspoon nutmeg (I add this because I love the flavor that it gives the pancakes, but its optional)
1-1/2 cups buttermilk (I often just use regular milk)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 cup vegetable oil
HOW TO MAKE IT:
Place flour, oats, sugar, wheat germ, baking powder, baking soda, salt, buttermilk, vanilla, oil and egg in a food processor or blender and puree until smooth. Now you can make it even tastier with a handful of chocolate chips! (add the chocolate chips AFTER you have blended the rest, or else it just makes chocolate batter)
Heat a lightly oiled or buttered griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour the batter onto the griddle or pan. Brown on both sides (flip when it starts to bubble).
