Whole Wheat Pancakes Recipe

Frugal breakfasts are easy when you take a little time to cook on the weekends. I boil up a bunch of hard boiled eggs and make a double batch of Whole Wheat Pancakes to store in the fridge or freezer the rest of the week. They’re easy to reheat in the toaster or microwave. This recipe is adapted from the old red and white Better Homes & Gardens Cookbook we’ve had since we were married. It’s healthier than a box mix because of the whole wheat fiber, and it costs less, too!

Whole Wheat Pancakes

Whole Wheat Pancakes


  • 1 1/4 cups white flour
  • 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 4 Tbsp sugar
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 Tbsp canola oil


  • Stir together flours, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
  • Combine egg, milk and oil; add all at once to dry mixture. Stir until blended but still slightly lumpy.
  • Pour about 1/4 cup batter on hot, greased griddle or heavy skillet. Cook until golden brown, turning to cook other side when pancakes have a bubbly surface and slightly dry edges. Makes about 16 4-inch pancakes.
  • NOTE: This is a double-batch. You can adapt this recipe by replacing the oil with applesauce, mashed banana or adding pumpkin (like my Pumpkin Pancakes). I like the basic recipe for bleary-eyed weekend mornings. Easy peasy.

    Yum! We make chocolate chip pancakes every weekend with enough leftover for a few more days. I'll try this whole wheat option next time it's my turn to cook! Visiting from the Muster Party.

    Visiting from Tasty Tuesday - my husband is the pancake maker at our house, and he makes a delicious whole wheat pancake recipe, too. Such a good idea to make breakfast food ahead of time to have on hand for the busy week, and we often do that with pancakes. I have been wanting to do more breakfast recipes ahead, and store them in the frig or the freezer.
