Healthy Pancakes

My husband, Anthony loves pancakes and since we have been married he always makes the pancakes. I haven't had too much luck in making good pancakes. Since he has started eating foods for his new health regiment we came across this recipe in "Thin Kitchen" cookbook. It is another recipe that works with the P90X diet. These are very healthy for you and I personally have yet to find out what "wheat germ" does for our body but it must be good. Anyway, my husband enjoys them and so does my picky 8 year old nephew Noah who has been staying with us. Don't forget to add some fresh fruit too.
