Whole Wheat Pancakes

Yesterday morning I made Diane's recipe for whole wheat pancakes for me and my kids' breakfast. This is a first in our family and the reactions varied.

My son said they were, "AWESOME!" and showed me this:

The girls weren't as thrilled, and one asked if I was ever going to make them again, or could I promise not to, or something like that. I smiled and said I couldn't promise not to make them again, because I really liked them.

Cooking with whole wheat does make foods more dense, but as Diane said these weren't too bad. I'm going to play around with mixing whole whole wheat and half regular flour, etc. and just trying to make them more and more. I think the kids will get used to them. :)

Feel free to check out Diane's recipe by clicking here.


  1. yum! I'll have to check out that recipe

  2. Good idea on mixing the flours. Let me know how that goes.

    Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog! :)

  3. I love heavy pancakes...I always start out with regular batter and then throw in some oatmeal, wheat germ, bran and ground flaxseed. They turn out very thick but I love them that way, it took a few times of eating them like that for the family to like them but now they are on board and I never hear anything negative about it.

    Love the thumbs up picture!
