…..with a healthy breakfast! Since my husband has been on a health kick lately, I have been making wheat germ pancakes for the mornings.

Some wheat germ, some whole wheat flour, and buttermilk make these so tasty and good for you as well!

Apparently wheat germ is very high in folic acid. All I know is these little babies keep me nice and full for a long time.

Want the recipe? Well of course you do!!

2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil
2 cups buttermilk
2 tsp. Baking powder
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 tsp. Salt
1.5 cups whole wheat pastry flour

In a medium bowl, mix the eggs w/ oil and buttermilk. Stir in baking powder, wheat germ, salt, and flour. Mix well until blended. Batter will be thick and lumpy.

Pour a 1/4 cup of batter into a buttered pan and cook on med- high heat, flipping when done. The batter will be lumpy so do not expect perfectly formed pancakes!! It just adds to the rustic goodness of it all!

Slather on butter and jam and enjoy!!!!! 😀
