What makes it great: Wheat germ is a good source of thiamine, an energy-boosting B vitamin that helps the body turn carbohydrates into fuel.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 200ºF. In a large bowl, combine flour, wheat germ, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, coconut milk, buttermilk, oil and vanilla. Pour milk mixture into flour mixture and stir until just moistened. Let stand for 10 minutes.

Step 2

Warm a griddle over medium heat; lightly brush with oil. When a drop of water sizzles on surface, pour batter by 1/3 cupfuls onto griddle. Cook until bubbles form on surface and edges seem dry, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook about 1 minute longer. Transfer to a platter. Place platter in oven to keep pancakes warm. Repeat with remaining batter.

Step 3

Combine syrup and butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Warm until butter has melted. Stir in lime juice. Serve pancakes with warm syrup on the side.

Amazing fluffy pancakes! It's a great way to use up that can of coconut milk you have laying around after making Thai food. I used whole wheat flour which made it a little darker, but still delicious!
