Fluffy Whole Wheat Pancakes

 Most whole wheat pancakes I’ve had are super dense and kind of like eating a piece of cardboard. I know, I know. I just got a hold of some bad recipes. But you know what? I believed that whole wheat pancakes were kind of a desecration of the name pancake. Until we started doing the Body Beast program. We usually have pancakes on Sundays, and about three weeks in, I was dying for some pancakes. Dying. 

So I began to entertain the idea of making whole wheat pancakes that at least sort of fit the Body Beast nutritional guidelines (operative part of that sentence being sort of…). My main issue was that I wanted some flavor and I wanted them fluffy. It took a couple of tries, but these pancakes are actually worth eating! They really deliver on the fluffiness front with a great texture, and the small amount of sugar adds just the right amount of sweetness to counter the nuttiness of the whole wheat flavor.

Honest to goodness, I’m sold. These are good not just as a diet food, but in their own right. Pair them with peanut butter and strawberries and you’ve got yourself a deliciously healthy breakfast! Or, if you’re not stuck with some restrictive nutritional guidelines,  you could pair them with a decadent cascade of syrup for a not-so-healthy option. You know. Whatever you want 🙂

    I have gone to using whole wheat flour for my baking needs. My pancakes fell flat time after time. Good taste, no fluff. My kids missed the the fluffy pancakes. And then I came across your recipe. Excellent taste and the FLUFFY!!! Kids are ecstatic, as am I. Thanks for an excellent recipe!
