These Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes are wholesome and a delciously healthy way to start the day. Yields 10-12 pancakes.
Towards the end of the school year I strongly dislike the mornings.
I wake up, get my get kids up and hopefully they are getting dressed while I am making breakfast and packing lunches, let the dog out, get backpacks ready and try convincing my youngest to stop staring at my oldest while they are eating their breakfast *insert eye roll*.
Some mornings they eat cereal or toast, but even I get sick of making that. Then after breakfast it’s time to brush their teeth and hair, find two sets of matching shoes and hopefully we are out the door by 8:08 to catch the school bus. If you have elementary kids then you know it is so rush-rush and the thought of getting up any earlier than 7:25 to make it easier on myself is just crazy, right?!
A smart and easy way to have a healthy breakfast for yourself and/or your kids on those busy mornings, is to make it ahead of time! On a day off or on a weekend day I like to make a huge batch of pancakes and freeze them according to my kids serving size. That way in the morning all I have to do is pull them out of the freezer and pop them into the microwave and my girls have a healthy and filling breakfast in their tummies.
I am SO glad we are in the home stretch, with less than a month left of school, summer is almost here and that means vacation! Good bye lunch packing and hello sun, snacking and sleeping in!
To Make These Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes You Will Need:
- whole wheat flour
- unbleached all-purpose flour
- baking soda
- baking powder
- kosher salt
- granulated sugar
- grated fresh nutmeg
- melted butter
Lightly beat the eggs with a fork.
Whisk all your dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Add the beaten egg… and the melted butter (make sure the butter isn’t hot or you’ll scramble your eggs)
Pour in all the buttermilk and whisk well, until combined.
Next grease your griddle with a little coconut oil, but you can use butter too. OH! and the temperature depends, I keep mine on medium… but I turn it down if it gets to hot… and vice versa.
Take a 1/2 c measuring cup and scoop up some batter.
Pour it on to preheated pan and wait… Yes I make one pancake at a time… so what?
Wait for the bubbles to come to the top. Your pancakes are ready to flip when the bubbles pop but do not fill back in with batter.
Flip and repeat!
Until you have a stack of beautifully golden pancakes. These whole wheat buttermilk pancakes are just waiting for a smear of butter and a drizzle of real maple syrup!
