Wheat Germ Whole Wheat Pancakes

I've been stuck in a rut lately with breakfast for my little boys. It's either oatmeal, eggs and fruit, or english muffins with organic peanut butter and jelly. I think kids need a wholesome breakfast without a lot of processed sugars, high fructose corn syrup, or preservatives so we don't eat things like pop tarts, toaster strudels, or sugary cereals and it can be hard finding healthy fun alternatives. I whipped up these pancakes the other day and they were great! It made quite a few so you can get a few meals out of one batch. I made the pancakes small so we could pop the leftovers in the toaster to warm up. To freeze them, lay the pancakes out flat on a cookie sheet and put them in the freezer. Once the pancakes are frozen you can put them all together in a freezer bag and pop them back in the freezer for a quick and easy breakfast another morning :)

Wheat Germ Whole Wheat Pancakes
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 cups buttermilk
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour

Mix eggs, applesauce, and buttermilk in a medium bowl. Stir in baking soda, wheat germ, salt, and flour; mix just until blended. Cook on a lightly oiled pan over medium heat until brown on both sides. 

Serve with maple syrup NOT pancake syrup! The first two ingredients of pancake syrup are corn syrup and high fructose corn syrup which means that is most of what your consuming when you eat it. Yuck!
