It is from an old Better Homes and Gardens cookbook.

If you love the taste of whole wheat, these healthy pancakes are for you. They truly 'stick-to-your-ribs' without a lot of fat and cholesterol.


  • 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar (not packed)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons wheat germ (Opt.)
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 1/2 cups of milk (skim works fine)
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil


  • Combine all the dry ingredient; stir.
  • Combine the liquid ingredients together; mix well and add to dry ingredients.
  • Do not overmix!
  • Important - let this sit for about 10 minutes.
  • On a hot griddle (sprayed with Pam lightly), cook carefully until several bubbles appear and pancake begins to 'dull'. Flip and cook for about half of the time.
  • (Note: Because of the high gluten/wheat germ content, these could burn easily.)
  • These are delicious served with honey or real maple syrup.
  • Enjoy!
