I had been craving pancakes for a few days, and when I saw a tweet about making pancakes I knew what I had to do – pancakes for dinner! I looked around the internet for recipes and found a couple that I combined to create these. They are surprisingly fluffy for being 100% whole wheat.
They have a hint of sweetness, and are great to eat by themselves. About halfway through cooking the batch, I tossed in about 1/3 of a cup of raspberries. Very tasty!
These freeze very well. If you manage to have leftovers, put them into the freezer separated by some wax or parchment paper. Then re-heat in the toaster.
I don’t like maple syrup. I like to eat them plain or with a bit of jam. They are also very tasty with peanut or almond butter. My wife likes them plain too. How do you like your pancakes?
- 2 tablespoons raw sugar
- 2 tablespoon Baking Powder
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
- 3 cups soy milk
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Wisk the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
- pour in the wet ingredients and gently mix. the batter will be lumpy. avoid over mixing or you won’t have fluffy pancakes
- cook the pancakes on a skillet or griddle on medium heat. resist the temptation to flip them early; instead wait until little popped air bubbles appear on top (~5 minutes) then flip.
