Fluffy Wheat Pancakes

Fluffy Wheat Pancakes

The first time I made these healthy, but surprisingly light pancakes, my oldest son declared them the best pancakes he’d ever had. Considering I make pancakes weekly and he was 16 – that was saying a lot! They have continued to be a favorite of our boys.

Ingredients: 1 cup whole wheat flour
½ cup all purpose flour
2/3 cup wheat germ
1 Tbsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
1 egg
1 Tbsp. agave nectar
1 ¾ cup Summerhill Goat Milk (up to 2 cups if you like thinner pancakes)
3 Tbsp. coconut oil (melted)

Directions: Mix dry ingredients (wheat flour, all purpose flour, baking powder, salt, wheat germ) in medium bowl. In a large bowl, whisk egg until foamy. Whisk in Summerhill Goat Milk, agave nectar and 2 Tbsp. melted coconut oil. Slowly add mixed dry ingredients and stir just until combined. (Do not over mix).
Heat a large nonstick pan over medium heat. Brush with thin layer of remaining coconut oil. Ladle about 1/3 cup batter onto griddle for each pancake. Cook for several minutes until bottoms are golden and edges look dry. Flip and cook for another minute or 2 – until golden brown and puffed. Repeat with remaining oil (adding more if needed) and batter. Top with maple syrup, fresh fruit or Goat Milk Caramel Sauce. (link to recipe)
