Uh mom! You were right! Breakfast really IS the most important meal of the day, which means when I send my kids to school with a hollow pop tart in their stomach, I’m not doing the best I can. I found this recipe during the summer when I didn’t want to hear all morning long about how hungry my kids were. These hearty pancakes will FILL. YOU. UP!
I started with this recipe from AllRecipes.com. It was a good start, but I don’t do artificial sweetener, and I wanted a few more healthy ingredients in these!
1.25 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tablespoon brown sugar (or do honey, whatever you have on hand)
1/4 cup any combination of wheat germ, flax, or even oats.
1/2 cup blueberries.
Mix it all up and cook like you normally would pancakes. Keep the griddle on the lower side of normal as these are pretty thick!
That’s it! Easy peasy! I do grind my wheat fresh, but feel free to use whatever your family will tolerate. I will say a couple of these keep me going all morning long. I’ve also added oatmeal if we had a particularly trying morning ahead of us.
