whole wheat, oat pancakes with flax

i have made these pancakes a few times and i just love them! they are thick, fluffy and the maple syrup soaks right in….and i’m talking real vermont maple syrup soaks into these delicious pancakes. heavenly! this said syrup rode all the way from vermont to texas with our good friends.

the base of this recipe is from my mom. growing up on a dairy farm in VT we ate lots of these pancakes with real VT maple syrup!

whole wheat, oat pancakes with flax

1  cup good quality whole wheat flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1 handful old fashioned oatmeal
1/4 – 1/3 cup ground oatmeal (i just put it in my coffee grinder. i don’t give an exact measurement because i haven’t figured out how much it takes to get me the amount of ground i want.)
a small handful of ground flax (probably a scant 1/4 cup)
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
3 teaspoons coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
Mix the liquid ingredients in a separate bowl. Once the wet ingredients are combined add to the dry and mix just until combined. Clumps are ok!
NOTE – these are thick…if you’d prefer a thinner pancake then i would add some extra milk.
