Perfect Pancakes

I finally found it. The holy grail of pancake recipes. I've made a lot of tasty ones, but they tend to end up flat... these however are thick, hearty, stick to your ribs good. Filled with whole grains and a little sweetness, these things have become a Sunday staple in our house. No need to try any more recipes because this one is gold!! My photo however is not so gold.. whoops...
Oat and honey pancakes
recipe from The CarbLovers Diet Cookbook (I know I've been cooking like made from it)

1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
2 cups old fashioned oats
1 Tbs baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon (I used 1 tsp)
2 Tbs honey (I used agave nectar... it's easier to squeeze out and measure, i'm lazy!)
1 Tbs sugar (I used splenda)
2 cups low fat milk (I used fat free)
2 large eggs
2 Tbs veg. oil

Place flours, wheat germ, oats, baking powder, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon in a food process, go till combined. Whisk together honey, sugar, milk, eggs, oil in a large bowl. Stir in flour until well combined. Let stand 5 minutes. Cook um up and dig in!

I think I'm the only person I know who really dislikes pancakes! I love waffles though, so I think I'd throw these in a waffle maker and call it a day ;)

You don't like pancakes!?!? Horrors!! lol, waffles are darn good though :)

Hi! These look fantastic, but I don't have any wheat germ on you think I could omit or substitute with something else? :)

fluffy and perfect pancakes!:D

Hmmm I know the recipe will feed 4 VERY hungry adults easily. I think the recipe has you making tiny pancakes... whereas I made 8 LARGE pancakes! So tasty! OO I'll have to check out your post! Glad you made it!

Hmmmm hard to say, I feel like the wheat germ helps hold things together. Maybe try flaxseed meal to get the same effect? I just bought a bottle of the wheat germ and have been making these pancakes every weekend so it's worth it for me :) Good luck and let me know if you sub something else and how it works!

oh yum--love the sound of these!
