Weekend Pancakes

I am all about pancakes on the weekend.  I have the time to leisurely find a recipe I like...with my homemade latte in hand of course!
I found a pancake recipe I liked online this weekend and then added a few additional ingredients to make it just right.
The ingredient amounts below are enough to make these pancakes for one person; although, I'll admit that my husband got a few bites this morning and Jax got one little bite without syrup.
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 tbsp. baking powder
1 tbsp. ground flaxseed
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
sprinkling of walnuts
1 cup almond milk
1. Mix all the dry ingredients (except the walnuts).
2. Add in the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until combined.
3. Pour the batter onto hot pan (medium heat).
4. Sprinkle the walnuts into the cooking pancakes.
5. Cook about 3 minutes a side or whenever they look ready to be eaten by you!
These are my new favorite pancakes.  They were fluffy and dense at the same time and I felt really good about the ingredients.  I topped mine with earth balance butter and some organic maple syrupNow that's a good morning start to the day!
What's your favorite weekend breakfast?


  1. Eggs Benedict! I am not a pancake person :( What latte maker do you have and how well/easy does it work?

    1. I have the Mr. Coffee latte maker and I highly recommend it! ( It's really easy and the lattes come out fantastic!

  2. I'm SO obsessed with pancakes. I make them almost every weekend (but somehow, I forgot to this weekend!) I also love to make biscuits and gravy -- using almond milk and soysage to make the gravy. SO good. I'm pretty sure almond milk makes better white gravy than cow's milk ever could.

    I'm curious about your latte maker, too! I always want one but am too lazy to venture out into the world :-)

    1. Aren't pancakes just amazing?! But wow, that biscuits and gravy sounds out of this world too! Have you done a post on that breakfast??? If you're in the market for a latte maker, Mr. Coffee latte maker works like a charm!

  3. Oh my gosh. I am obsessed with my Mr. Coffee latte maker too! I talk about my coffee love far too much :)

    1. Isn't it just fantastic?! I'm obsessed with mine too haha :)

  4. This recipe is so simple! I am def going to have to try it out. I have been craving pancakes for a while but not in the mood for my recipe lol. Thanks :)
