High-Octane Pancakes

Fluffy and health-packed, these hotcakes are what Kelly Hanlon relies on to jumpstart frosty winter mornings in Strasburg, Colorado and keep her fueled up all day long. They’re scrumptious!

    These are a staple in our house. We do substitute 1/2 whole wheat flour for white and leave out the oil. They do not make a lot so I triple the recipe to feed a family

    This recipe made about 5 medallion-sized pancakes. They were good, a little doughy in the center as I usually find pancakes with any yogurt to be, I used applesauce for the the oil and flaxseed meal for the wheatgerm.

    I have made these over and over thinking how yummy they are. I have also added a few ingredients and made my waffles with these ingredients. I could eat them everyday.
