Favorite Whole Wheat Pancakes {A Whole Foods Recipe}

Whole Wheat Pancakes Recipe

I’ve recently switched to eating only whole foods. I’ve had to play around with some recipes to try & find whole food ways of making some of my favorites. Pancakes are something we love in our house & my husband likes to make them for our girls every weekend. Our favorite recipe called Favorite Pancakes was given to me almost 10 years ago by my friend Little John. I usually cut this recipe in half as it will make 2 dozen pancakes (if you cut in 1/2 use 2 eggs).

Or you can make the recipe as is and freeze the extra pancakes for mornings when you need a quick breakfast!
