      Whole Wheat Pancakes:goodOne:
      1 cup whole wheat flour
      1 tsp baking powder
      1/2 tsp baking soda
      1/8 tsp salt
      1 egg, lightly beaten
      1 cup low-fat buttermilk
      2 tbs honey
      Whisk whole-wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. In a small bowl, combine egg, buttermilk and honey. Make a well in dry ingredients and stir in egg and buttermilk mixture.

      Allow batter to rest for a few minutes. Preheat griddle to 375 degrees or set a nonstick frying pan to medium-high heat. Drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls on to griddle or pan.

      Cook until the edges begin to dry and bubbles appear in the pancakes. Flip and cook for 1-2 minutes more. 8 servings = 185 calories.

      oh, I hope so! tell me how you like it;-) I get to have this next week for breakfast…twice! LOL!

      (just to let you know if you haven’t followed my boring menu plans since I’ve been dieting.

      We switched to total whole grains over 3 years ago. Now we can’t stand to eat regular white flour, pasta, rice stuff. It’s like eating paste most of the time!

      Greatly reduces our wanting to eat out!

      Jaimie, look in the menu forum and just look for three separate weeks of ‘diet’ in the title. if you want a boring, but very cheap, diet…this one’s for you! LOL!

      Hey Mos, the pancakes were a huge success last night. Even dh loved them. I had a little trouble flipping them, but it could have just been an off night for me LOL.

      Thanks for the great recipe…I will check out the menu form.

      that sounds great and what a great idea! Thanks!

      What is the serving size for these pancakes? I actually tend to like the taste of whole wheat products better, especially pancakes. To me, they seem to taste sweeter, with a much better texture!

      I will have to try this recipe out! Thanks for sharing!

      hmontana…
      I apologize for getting back to you so late on this;-/ Somehow I overlooked (shame on me…don’t fire me Liss!) this post!
      The recipe is for eight servings of two standard-sized pancakes.

      If your family is less than eight around the breakfast table and like heartier breakfasts (provided they can burn off the calories before lunch time…don’t want to add to anyone’s waistgiggle smiley), then use your own judgement as to portion sizes.
      These pancakes are ‘hearty’ as they can hold up to something ‘slapped’ between two of them and make a breakfast on the go;-D I’ve actually made pb&j sandwiches for myself to eat when running late while driving in the car!

      obviously, i used frozen pancakes that were defrosted in the microwavegiggle smileyif i’m running late, i can’t very well take the time to make pancakes! lol!!
      let me know if this answered your concern or due to my lack of observation (please don’t fire me, liss!!!), you figured it out on your own.

      These sound yummy.

      Bet they’re even better with some type of fruit in them…especially blueberries…oh yeah, gonna have to try these. 😉
      Thanks so much for sharing your fantastic recipes!!!

      Great idea! My favorite is to take the last apple that no longer has its ‘crunch’ and therefore, no one wants…sigh…and chop it up and mix into batters. Be it pancake, some kinda bread, etc., and this works so well with the whole wheat pancake batter;-D
      Let me know what fruit you mix in and how they are receive by the family!

    • #432158

      I know exactly what you’re talking about. My family does this too.
      GGGaahrr. I hate waste so I usually put the unwanted, not very attractive left over fruit that no one wants, in my morning oatmeal.
      Thanks for sharing and letting us ‘pick your very creative mind’.
      I’m a huge fan of your recipes!! :hand-icon:
