What’s For Breakfast? Homemade Pancakes!

I know I’ve already done a pancake recipe before using a Bisquick mix, but these delicious pancakes are made from scratch! AND whole wheat! AND they are light, fluffy, and yummm-my! ๐Ÿ™‚
Nothing makes me feel better in the morning than knowing I’m putting healthy, hearty food into my stomach that tastes good to boot. I serve these up with some homemade strawberry syrup (just frozen strawberries pureed with a little bit of sugar) and it is a happy, happy day! ๐Ÿ˜€

{And for St. Patrick’s Day, just throw a little bit of green food coloring into the batter to enjoy some holiday spirit. Don’t forget to put some green in your glass of milk too!} ๐Ÿ™‚

Homemade Whole Wheat Pancakes

  • 1ยฝ cups white whole wheat flour (or you can do half wheat, half all-purpose)
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • ยพ tsp salt
  • 1 1/3 cups milk (reconstituted powdered milk)
  • 1 egg (2 Tbsp egg powder + 4 Tbsp water)
  • 3 Tbsp butter, melted (or vegetable oil)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the middle.
  2. In a separate bowl, stir together the milk, egg, butter (or oil), and vanilla. Add to the dry ingredients and mix until smooth.
  3. Pour pancake batter onto a hot griddle (I put my pan over medium to medium high heat) and cook until little bubbles start to form and pancake is golden brown. Flip the pancake over and cook the other side until golden brown as well.
  4. Serve and enjoy!

Fun tip: We put the cooked pancakes in our tortilla warmer to keep them warm while we cook the rest of the pancakes up. That way we’ve all got warm pancakes when we sit down to eat together. ๐Ÿ™‚
