Pancakes are a quick, easy, inexpensive, and tasty breakfast. We eat them pretty frequently. Made with whole wheat flour, they can be a healthy way to start the day.
2 cups whole wheat flour (or 2 1/2 cups spelt flour)
2 tablespoons sucanat (any natural sweetener will work, as will sugar)
2 teaspoons. baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons of melted butter (I have also use coconut oil, but when you add the milk, it gets hard and there are chunks of it in the pancakes)
2 beaten eggs
2 cups milk
2 mashed ripe bananas (opt.)
Mix all the ingredients together and cook on a griddle. Top with real butter and real maple syrup! We enjoy eating them with sausage and fresh fruit on the side sometimes, as well. One batch of these serves our family of three (Katie's a big eater at breakfast time!) with a couple pancakes left over.
