A great pancake makes for a great quick dinner!

Whole Wheat Pancakes

Am I the only wife out there that feels zero desire to make a normal meal when the hubby is not home for dinner? My husband travels a lot for his consulting business, which means I am off the hook a lot. It’s not like he expects anything special when he is home, but I like to make him something nice when he is home.

I do a lot of breakfast for dinner when he is gone. Quick, easy and I like to do the whole grain path as well, so healthy.

This recipe is also amazing using all white flour or 1/2 and 1/2. If you are feeling extra indulgent, the original recipe calls for a 1/2 cup of oil, but I cut it down to 1/3 to try to make it a bit healthier. My kids love this recipe so much that they refer to them as “the real pancakes”…..as if all other pancakes I make are cheap imitations.  At least they appreciate a great pancake when they have one!
