Whole Wheat Oatmeal Flaxseed Pancakes

My husband loves pancakes and waffles. I wanted to make something a bit healthier. I came across a pancake 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, but they also taste great! I use pure maple syrup on mine because anything else masks the wonderful flavor of the pancakes. The recipe can be halved or doubled. I sent this recipe in to "Cooking for Two" and it was published in Fall 2008.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Looking to lighten up your morning breakfast? Give these no-guilt pancakes a try. With whole grains, flaxseed, and just a hint of sugar, this easy pancake recipe makes you feel like you're starting the day right. The batter is sticky and a bit thick but don't let that fool you. The pancakes turn out light and tender. Drizzle with honey or real maple syrup for an amazing breakfast.

Note: Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup for equal sized pancakes. Then use the back of a spoon to spread the batter out a little. Set your griddle to 325 (or stove to a medium-heat) so the batter has plenty of time to cook the grains all the way through. The Test Kitchen
