Whole wheat flour and rolled oats make these pancakes an excellent source of fiber.


Be sure to cook all the batter. Batter refrigerated for a day or two will yield thin, tough pancakes. Instead, freeze leftover cooked pancakes.

The pancake mix recipe can be doubled or tripled and stored for additional batches.
