Whole Wheat Pancakes

Yum, this is one of Grant's and my favorite Sunday morning breakfasts. I find it fun to try and make a recipe a little bit healthier and I can honestly say that these pancakes taste fabulous all healthied up and stuff!

Whole Wheat Pancakes

* 1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour (freshly ground is the best!)

* 2 tablespoons honey, warmed so it runs smooth (raw and filtered for more nutrients)

* 2 teaspoons double-acting baking powder (aluminum free, please)

* 3/4 teaspoons salt

* 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil (olive oil will work too)

* 1 1/3 cup milk

* 1 egg, slightly beaten

Mix the dry ingredients together and set aside. Then mix the honey, coconut oil, milk and egg together (make sure that the mixture is smooth, no honey glubs). Then mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix just until flour is moistened. Then melt a pat of butter into your medium hot skillet and pour batter (about 1/4 cup) into the skillet. Don't flip the pancake until the batter is bubbly. Then flip and cook a bit more. Then slather with real maple syrup and enjoy!

Makes about 12 pancakes.

Here's something smart-- make a double batch and freeze the extras. Then pop the frozen pancake into the toaster to reheat and enjoy!

I never thought about freezing my pancakes. That's good to keep in mind. Thanks!
