Banana Walnut Pancakes {100% whole wheat}

I am continually on the hunt for a pancake recipe that uses whole wheat flour without turning out pancakes that have the consistency of an old dish sponge. This recipe is the best I’ve found and after making a few minor tweaks, these were the best 100% whole wheat pancakes I’ve eaten.

Way too dry!

Correcting a dry batter by adding a little more milk

I kept adding milk until it had a thinner and smoother consistency. I also added more honey to make sure it didn’t lose any sweetness.

I’m a big believer in Ina Garten’s practice of plating. She always says you should make sure the person enjoying the dish actually knows what’s in it. As you can see, I’ve left no room for guessing ingredients.

    • They were honestly so good, completely free of that heavy/chewy density so often found in 100% whole wheat anything.
