whole wheat oatmeal pancakes

This is one of our go-to Saturday morning pancake recipe. They’re extremely easy to whip up and extremely tasty! It’s also a pancake that you don’t have to feel totally guilty about eating! With 12 servings each pancake comes out to 75 calories, 0.8 grams of fat, 2 grams of sugar and about 4 grams of protein. If you go to a different restaurant “house” you’re looking at about 155 calories, 5 grams of fat, and 5 grams of sugar for one pancake. So this is definitely a no brainer.

This was the first recipe I tried whole wheat pastry flour and I’ve used it in everything ever since! It has the same great wheat flavor with a softer texture.

To make things even easier in the mornings mix a double or triple batch and leave the dry ingredients in an air tight container until ready to use! When you are ready you’ll just use about 1 1/2 cups of the dry mix then add in your wet ingredients! Easy peasy!
