Four Grain Pancakes

four grain pancakes

I figured for every 250756 recipe I post. I’ll post 1 healthy recipe. So…here you go! Healthy four grain pancakes! Woohoo! They sound delicious….right? Well, they are!

I found this recipe in the Joy of Cooking cookbook (get it here). It’s pretty much my housewife bible. If I’m not sure of something or I have any questions, I look to the book for answers. I always find them. Anyway, my kids are really into pancakes and cry their eyes out if I don’t give them “cake” for breakfast. I wanted to give them something healthier so I decided to try these and they loved them!  I left them on the stove to cool before freezing them and they stole a few when I wasn’t looking. When reheating, I just throw a couple at a time in the microwave for 45 seconds or until heated through. The honey in these keeps them super moist even after they’ve been frozen which makes them perfect for big batch cooking and freezing. I’m all about convenience.

Serve these hot with maple syrup (and maybe some “healthy” butter).
