Today I'm sharing one of Mae's favorite recipes—homemade whole wheat pancakes. It's funny because I bought a pancake mix a few weeks ago for mornings I'm short on time, but she disliked it so much, she now asks for these weekly.

I shouldn't complain though, out of all of the pancake recipes I've tried on her (quite a few!) these easy, whole wheat pancakes are her favorites. Enjoy!

Source: Easy Delicious Whole Wheat Pancakes Recipe by Inspired Taste


  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup (100 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups milk, dairy or non-dairy (I use 1 1/2 of almond milk)
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus more for the skillet or substitute coconut oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Scooping 1/4 cup batter yields around 12 pancakes


Why these pancakes?

I'll be honest, it's hard to make an amazing pancake. I've tried a lot of recipes with several flours. All-purpose. Cake flour. I think Mae likes these the best because of the whole wheat flour's nuttiness, as well as the cinnamon. They've got a generally sweeter flavor to them, yet not too sweet, so you don't need as much syrup.
