How to Make Whole Wheat Pancakes
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.
- Create a well in the center of the dry ingredients and then whisk in the wet ingredients until just they’re combined. The batter may be lumpy, but that’s okay.
- Heat a griddle to medium-low.
- Brush the griddle with butter or lightly spray it with nonstick cooking spray.
- Pour about 1/3 cup portions of the pancake batter onto the griddle, or make the pancakes any size that you choose.
- When the edges are set and the bubbles in the center don’t fill quickly, flip the pancake. Cook the pancakes for 1-2 minutes on the next side until cooked through.
Note that you may need to adjust the amount of milk in the batter to get it to the right consistency. You want the pancake batter to be slightly thick but so thick that it’s hard to pour.
Are whole wheat pancakes healthier?

How do I make pancakes fluffier?
Making fluffy pancakes is a skill that so many people want to achieve. No one likes a sad flat pancake, so creating a fluffy stack of delicious mouth-watering pancakes is a dream come true and obtaining this little skill is much easier than you may think.
You can make your pancakes fluffier by simply not overmixing your pancake batter. You want it to have small lumps because an overmixed batter will result in tough pancakes.
You should also make sure to let your batter rest for several minutes before pouring onto a hot griddle.
A good way to do this is to make the batter before preheating the griddle so that it has time to rest while you wait for the griddle to be ready to use.
