Hearty Whole Wheat Pancakes


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 4 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds or ground flaxseed, optional
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups low-fat milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Cooking spray

(Some optional ingredients that can be added: chocolate chips, diced bananas, chopped walnuts, blueberries, cooked & chopped up bacon (I promise it’s delicious!))


In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, chia or flaxseed if using, cinnamon, and sugar.  In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and vanilla extract, then combine with dry mix making sure to not over mix; no beating necessary.

Heat a large skillet over medium high heat; make sure pan is nice and hot before spooning in batter.  If you’re using a variety of different ingredients, i.e. berries, chocolate chips, walnuts, it’s best to individually sprinkle over pancake before flipping.  Once your pancake begins to lightly bubble in the pan, make sure the edges of your pancake have settled then gently flip and cook for another 3-5 minutes.  Enjoy with the traditional butter and maple syrup, or if you’re looking for a real filling power boost meal on the go, spread with almond butter and drizzle with honey.
