I had some buttermilk laying around so I used that instead of regular milk. I also replaced about half the all-purpose flour with whole wheat. Oh, and I threw in a handful of ground up flax seed for no other reason than I like to see how much I can get away with before the kids notice and/or complain.
These pancakes were perfect. They were fluffy and delicious and tasted like something from a restaurant. It should say something about the usual quality of pancakes around here that, after tasting them, the boy said, "These are delicious. Where did they come from?" As if I couldn't make a delicious pancake on my own, they had to be brought in from some outside source.
But as good as these pancakes were, they can't really be considered healthy. So now I ask you, do you have a healthy pancake recipe? Do you have a yummy gluten free pancake recipe? Do you have an oat cake recipe that you love? Please share!
(Also, is it slightly ironic that even though I'm on a desperate search for a healthy pancake, I vehemently refuse to give up my junky, high-fructose-corn-syrup filled pancake syrup? I could say it's because real maple syrup is too expensive, but really I just love the crappy stuff. Especially if it's 'butter' flavored. Yum.)
