The simplest whole-wheat pancakes EVER


TVWBB Olympian
Ever since last week when I got a 32 oz jug of Coombs family farm organic grade B maple syrup I've been making a lot more pancakes.... I have some Snoqualmie Falls Lodge NutraRich (looks like it's whole wheat, texture wise) and made a couple of batches.

Then I wondered how much can there really be in there, how bad could they be, so I tried my own 'recipe'.

Here goes:
1/2 cup whole wheat flour (Western Family)
1 banana, forked
as much cinnamon as you want
water to your favorite consistancy.

You know the rest. Couldn't believe it's so easy. No yeast, just flour & water. MMMMMM

*makes four 5-6" pancakes

Here's my go-to recipe passed down from a friends grandfather.....

Beat 2 eggs
Add 1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon Rogers Golden syrup
Mix well
Add 1 cup of flour
3 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
Add 1 cup of milk – slowly and mix in
Add 4 tablespoons of oil

I'll have to give that a shot. Mine aren't overly fluffy or anything, probably wouldn't make good waffles, I bet yours would make great waffles (I'll try it sometime!)

Guess I need to read up on what baking powder/soda do.... I was just shooting for a low glycemic index low as you can get with syrup or jam anyway lol. I read about pancakes in Runner's World and it got me interested in trying. **I've been making a simple whole wheat bread recipe for a few years now. It's a lot lower GI (according to my blood sugar) than brown rice.
