Whole Wheat Pancakes that taste good

I love recipes that are versatile, and this recipes is a “must have” base recipe you need to add to your recipe collection or master meal list …especially if you have kids that love pancakes and waffles.

I’ve talked about this recipe with a lot with my clients, and it has been well tested, so I am confident that you will love it too!

On the weekend, I like to make pancakes and waffles for my kids and finding the perfect recipe has always been a challenge. I’ve tweaked and altered this recipe to be low fat & low sugar, so I feel good about serving it to my family. You can bump up the fibre and protein with this recipe too by adding ground flax or hemp too!

I love it when I can use one recipe and alter it slightly for different meals. It’s such a time saver!

This recipe is versatile because you can use it to make pancakes or waffles. Yes, one recipe for two types of breakfast meals. The only thing you have to change is a bit of the milk qnty. I’ve tried the waffle recipe to make pancakes without altering the milk, and they are too thick, you so just have to bump up the milk amount, and then it works great for pancakes.

Here are the two recipes. Use this as a base recipe for meal planning. And for something fun, you can add fruit & nuts to the batter too! Ok, lets be honest, for real fun my kids like chocolate chips 🙂

Meal planning tip: Double batch the recipe and make extra and freeze. I use parchment paper to separate the pancakes and waffles before I freeze. Then you have pancakes and waffles on demand for busy mornings!
