POMEGRANATE WHOLE WHEAT PANCAKES are easy to make and always a crowd pleaser!
Most mornings we don’t have time for a big breakfast. It’s usually grab-and-go, especially on busy weekdays. But on the weekends, I like to make breakfast for my family.
One of our favorite breakfast foods is pancakes. We especially love whole wheat pancakes. They are hearty and oh so filling.
The result was fantastic! I love the sweet-tart taste of the pomegranate arils. I also love the way they burst in your mouth.
Pomegranates are so good for you too. They are loaded with antioxidants, potassium, Vitamin K, and fiber. And, by putting them in pancakes, it’s a great way to introduce your kids to their deliciousness.
The batter for these pancakes is a bit thicker than traditional pancake batter. The hearty whole wheat flour and oats give it some heft. But, if you find it’s too thick for you, you can thin it with a little more milk.
Because they are thicker, they will take a little longer to cook. I usually wait until the center of each pancake puffs up a bit before I flip them.
These pancakes are just as good the next day, too. Simply, pop them in the toaster for a few minutes and you’re good to go. I usually make extras on the weekend so we can enjoy them throughout the week too.
