Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Spread wheat germ over a baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until toasted, about 5 minutes. Cool slightly, then transfer wheat germ to a large bowl.
  4. Stir flour, baking soda, and salt into wheat germ. Beat buttermilk, eggs, and oil in another bowl until smooth; pour egg mixture into flour mixture and stir until batter is just blended.
  5. Heat griddle over medium-high heat and coat with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cup portions of batter onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, about 3 minutes more. Repeat with remaining batter.

I liked it without any changes. My kiiiids on the other hand required some modifications. I added .5 c of sugar and used 1 cup of wheat flour and one cup of white. I plan on reducing these modifications slowly. Great recipe! Thanks!

Great recipe. I usually add some mashed fruit or cinnamon, ginger, vanilla, etc. Love not having to buy pancake mix anymore! Very healthy and satisfying.
