Pancakes this weekend, at the lake!

Fluffy. Sweet. Golden. Tasty.  PANCAKES.   I’m starting to think we might take these things for granted.  Nothing says all-American breakfast like the traditional pancake and it doesn’t have to be packed with unhealthy ingredients, either. This recipe has been developed over time by researching and trying dozens of recipes and tweaking certain things here and there to make these perfect for us.  We’d love to hear how you switch things up to suit YOUR family’s taste buds.

 

Old-Fashioned, All-American Pancakes

Ingredients:

2c Whole Wheat Flour

1c Oats

4T sugar (or your favorite substitute)

3 cups milk (add more later to get desired consistency)

Directions:

Preheat pan or cast iron skillet to low to medium temperature. Mix dry ingredients together.  When you’re finished add wet ingredients.  If you desire a thinner pancake, you may choose to add a little more milk or water during this step.  We like them thicker, so we typically skip any additional ingredients.   

Spray hot pan with some cooking spray and add desired amount of batter.  If you are cooking for kids or the tiny child within, you can add sprinkles or chocolate chips to this step.  Wait until you see bubbles and then flip the pancake.  Your finished product should be a golden brown.  Sprinkle some powdered sugar or any other topping you desire.
