I mentioned whole wheat flour in my Get Healthy in 2014: Kitchen Basics Part 1 post a couple of weeks ago. I love having wheat berries on hand to be able to blend up whole wheat flour whenever I need it. Of course, if you don’t have the capability to grind your own flour it’s definitely better to use store-bought whole wheat flour rather than all-purpose flour. I got rid of all of my all-purpose flour and no longer have any in my pantry at all. Because I used the soft white winter wheat berries my pancakes were just as moist and fluffy as any that would have been made with all-purpose flour.

Because these are so darn delicious I’ve already made them twice since Melissa gave me the recipe (and in fact, it’s time for a third batch). The first time I used whole milk, and the second time we were out of whole milk but we had unsweetened almond milk. So I used that instead. Couldn’t even tell a difference! Because almond milk allows me to save a few calories, that’s what I will be using from now on. Each time I made a batch I ended up freezing them and then just pulling a couple out each morning. I popped them in the toaster, drizzled a tablespoon of maple syrup and away I went. I try not to use butter if I don’t need to, so I spread a teaspoon or so of coconut oil on my pancakes before adding my syrup. Most of the time I skipped that step all together and just had the pancakes with syrup. Either way is delicious!
