These Fluffy Whole Wheat Pancakes are my family’s all-time favorite pancake recipe. Yeah I’ve made others, {oh and these} but these beauties reign supreme. No fancy equipment or ingredients are required and they are hearty enough to keep you full until lunch!

True story: Gabe far prefers pancakes to waffles. I am not sure why, because they’re pretty much the same food in different shapes {lol}. But it is what it is and he likes what he likes! 😉

I’m pretty sure that boy asks me to make these Fluffy Whole Wheat Pancakes 5 out of 7 days of the week {no joke}. And every time I whip up a batch my husband remarks, with a surprised tone in his voice, “Wow these are really yummy.” I laugh and remind him that I have made them more times than I can count…and then I get a little offended that he’s surprised at my ability to make delicious pancakes! I mean c’mon babe, I’ve been cooking for you for 10 years… 😉

Any who, these Fluffy Whole Wheat Pancakes are the perfect basic, no frills pancake recipe. They’re absolutely divine as-is, and can even stand their own without maple syrup! {Although why anyone would forgo eating pure maple syrup is beyond my comprehension}!

They are also a blank slate for any sort of mix-ins your heart desires! Chocolate chips, sprinkles, blueberries, the possibilities are truly endless!  This batter is hearty and holds up well no mater what you toss in it!

Fluffy Whole Wheat Pancakes: Method

Here are a few notes on making this recipe!

Make ahead. I love these pancakes because they are ridiculously easy! I usually mix up the dry ingredients the night before and leave them covered at room temperature until the morning. Then I mix up the wet ingredients, add them together and presto!

Freezer friendly. these Fluffy Whole Wheat Pancakes freeze beautifully! After we’ve eaten our share I toss the rest on a baking sheet to flash-freeze them. Once they’re frozen I transfer the pancakes to an airtight container or ziplock bag! Simply reheat in the microwave or toaster and you have an easy, healthy breakfast ready in seconds!

Cooking. I aways use an electric griddle {that I bought years ago for like $15 on sale at kohl’s, nothing fancy} to cook pancakes. I love that it’s non-stick and that I can make 8 pancakes at once. If you don’t have a griddle any non-sick pan or cast iron skillet works well! You may just need to play with the flame/amount of heat required, since you can’t simply set it to 350 degrees and call it done {like you can with a griddle}!

Fluffy Whole Wheat Pancakes: Substitutions

This is one of those tried-and-true recipes that is best to leave as-is! BUT, there are a few substitutions that can be made and still result in a fluffy stack of pancake bliss!

Coconut sugar. Any granulated sugar works perfectly in this recipe! I’ve used raw organic sugar & coconut sugar with perfect results!

Milk. Any variety of milk should work great in this recipe! I have used 2% milk and almond milk with great results!

Greek yogurt. Both plain and vanilla flavored Greek yogurt work perfectly in this recipe!

NOTE: You can also substitute 1 cup of buttermilk for the milk and Greek yogurt. So instead of using 3/4 cup milk, 1/4 cup yogurt…simply use 1 cup of buttermilk if you keep it on hand!
