I keep wheat germ around for many different recipes, but they each use so little I'm always looking for a recipe to help use it up more quickly. This was a great one. We like pancakes and found this recipe didn't alter anything drastically to where the flavor or consistency was no longer close to a traditional pancake. So for the nutritious benefit, these will replace our regular pancake recipe from now on. These are ingredients we always have on hand, so to whip some up on a Saturday morning is very easy.
Made these the first time a few months ago. Froze a half batch to keep portions in check and they were yummy both times. There is a nuttiness from the wheat germ what does not take over the pancake. This is NOT a big fluffy cake, but a tender thin-ish disc. Served with organic maple syrup. They are now the "go to" pancake in our house...Looking forward to trying them with fruits...Read More
Great, nutritious pancake recipe. I ate them with chopped fresh peaches and walnuts. Very good! I modified by adding vanilla extract and 1/2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice. They came out perfectly for 12 even size pancakes.Read More
