I have fallen head over heals in love with.... whole wheat flour. I love the color, smell and texture. I love the sweet way things taste after I make something using my new love, whole wheat flour.
A second love of mine... pancakes. But pancakes have long been my adversary. I cannot flip a pancake to save my life. If left on my own to make pancakes I will be left with a mess of a mess that is burned on the outside and raw in the center. Don't ask. I don't know why.
So my husband has become resident pancake flipper. This weekend I decided to try my hand a whole wheat pancakes and I came up with a recipe I am sure you will love.
It's simple and $2 (not counting syrup) makes enough pancakes to feed four people.
This is what you will need:
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups milk (That's equal parts whole wheat flour and milk if you want to make more or less pancakes)
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup artificial sweetner or sugar
1 tbs cinnamon
1 tbsp pumpkin pie seasoning
Throw everything in a bowl and mix, mix, mix.
Preheat and spray an electric skillet or a pan over medium heat. Each pancake should be a 1/4 cup. This recipe yields 16 smaller pancakes. Cook until one side is bubbly and then flip.
Cover in syrup, or powdered sugar and enjoy!
