Whole Wheat Oatmeal Flaxseed Pancakes

My husband loves pancakes and waffles. I wanted to make something a bit healthier. I came across a recipe that he wouldn't have eaten with the ingredients in it, so I deleted those and added some others and ended up with this. We love them and so do my guests. Flax seeds are not only healthy, they taste great! I use pure maple syrup on mine because anything else masks the wonderful flavor of the pancakes. Recipe can be halved or doubled. I sent this recipe in to "Cooking for Two" and it was published in the fall of 2008.
