These come out very light and fluffy and are full of whole grain. My kids love them! If you like blueberries, throw a few on top before flipping the cake :)

Directions

  1. Whisk whole wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Whisk buttermilk, eggs, and vegetable oil in a separate bowl; pour buttermilk mixture into dry ingredients. Stir just until combined (batter may seem a bit thick).
  2. Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-low heat for 5 minutes. Pour 1/3 cup of batter onto hot skillet and use a spoon to spread the pancake a bit. Cook until browned and bubbles appear on top, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Flip and cook until browned and set in the middle, about 2 more minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.
  3. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

I did not have buttermilk on hand, I soured whole milk with a couple tablespoons lemon juice. I made no other changes. I have made whole wheat pancakes before and know that it takes a bit for the whole wheat flour to suck up some of the additional liquid so I let it sit for five-ten minutes while the griddle preheated. VERY good pancake. Reminds me of the pancakes my dad made for me on Saturday mornings. Kids loved them.

Wow, these are great. Fluffy, thick, and with the subtle nutty taste of whole wheat. I also subbed in soured milk (with vinegar) instead of buttermilk. Other than that, followed the recipe. Kids love them without syrup, my husband loves them, and so do I! This is the third time I've made them and they came out great each time. Perfect whole wheat pancakes"

Loved this recipe! I did substitute coconut oil for the vegetable oil, though.
