Sunday Morning Pancakes

As with many families, Sunday morning breakfast is a much loved ritual. Sunday breakfast in our household means either pancakes, French toast or eggs with sausage or bacon. After playing around with a few pancake recipes we came up with our own healthy, hearty whole grain pancake recipe that we just love and I'm going to share it with you.

Our Pancakes
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup ground flax meal
1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
6 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3 eggs
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups milk

Mix the dry ingredients first with a whisk.
To the dry ingredients add the eggs, oil, vanilla and whisk into the dry ingredients. Slowly add the milk and whisk together until mixed but do not over-mix. Let the batter rest about 15 minutes before cooking in a greased pan or griddle over medium-high heat.
Cook until lightly-browned then turn to brown the other side. Once browned on both sides you are ready to serve and top with butter, maple syrup or whatever strikes your fancy. Enjoy!
