a stack of three homemade pancakes, topped with a dollop of Greek yogurt and fresh blueberries

Whole Grain and Nutrient-Rich

Far better than a packaged pancake mix, and easier than going out for breakfast (and better for your health). It’s recipes like this that remind you of the days when most food was made from scratch, and actually had taste and reliably good ingredients. Whole grain flour and yogurt provide fiber, calcium and a good source of probiotics. Give the pancake batter a minute or two to activate in liquid before starting the griddle process; it makes for a lighter pancake with more air bubbles.
