Wholegrain Pancakes

These are among the most delicious pancakes I have ever eaten! And I know a couple of people (my brother Mitch, and Rina [my husband's step-mom]), who make awesome pancakes. I especially like eating pancakes that are nutritious, grainy, and rich. This recipe delivers wonderfully tasty, nourishing, and wholesome pancakes. I top mine with maple syrup. The original recipe for these wholegrain pancakes is here, I tweaked the recipe and added salt, vanilla extract, and blueberries (though you could also add a tablespoon of toasted walnuts or pecans, and strawberries or bananas).


1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup cornmeal
3 tablespoons flaxseed meal
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 egg, beaten
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup blueberries (optional) 

What to do?
In a large bowl, stir together the whole wheat flour, oats, cornmeal, flaxseed meal, brown sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Pour in buttermilk, egg, salt, vanilla extract, and blueberries. Stir just until smooth.

Melt butter in pan over medium heat, drop 
a spoon of batter and let cook until edge is brown, turn and cook other side.

These will fill you up for several hours, you'll be ready to take on the day!
