My New Favorite Pancake Recipe

Let me tell you about my new favorite pancake recipe.  They’re so flavorful and fluffy, plus there’s all kinds of good stuff in them – whole wheat flour, oats, flax seeds.  There’s no oil, white flour, or sugar.   Compared to plain white pancakes, these are faintly nutty, slightly sweet, slightly salty, and have just the […]
