“I got this recipe from a friend after having trouble making a pancake with whole wheat flour that my 2 boys will eat. I made these and I swear they were the best pancakes I ever made. They looked so fluffy and browned just right. The boys loved them. We usu. eat maple syrup or powdered sugar over them. I just tried making a homemade syrup and that turned out good too. This is freshly ground whole wheat flour, so if you have store bought whole wheat, I would recommend doing it 1/2 white and half wheat.”
