It's Saturday! Pancakes are easy and quick to make and you don't need a mix.
Mix together the dry ingredients the night before and add your liquid ingredients in the morning while you heat your griddle or fry pan to medium heat.

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 large eggs
  1. Put all the dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl and whisk it together.
  2. In a measuring cup, combine the wet ingredients and then add all together to the dry ingredients and stir just until combined.
  3. Preheat griddle or fry pan to mediumn heat. Spray with cooking spray and then use a dab of butter for flavor.
  4. Drop by large tablespoons onto the pan and cook on one side until bubbles begin to appear and flip over for about a minute.
  5. Serve with your favorite toppings.


  1. Those pancakes look so perfect in that pan. Lovely recipe!

  2. We make these all the time!! They are so good, that we will never go back to just white pancakes again.

  3. Lovella, I just made white pancakes this week and wondered how wheat ones would taste. I'm going to try these!

  4. That looks great. I love buttermilk in things. At our house, we've been making sour dough pancakes and waffles on the weekend. Also good. I freeze leftover waffles for homemade "eggos" I can pass out on week day mornings.

  5. They look absolutely fantastic and the fact that they are whole weat is great !!
    Have a wonderful day.
