Honey Wheat Pancakes

I came across this recipe by chance when I googled homemade healthy pancakes and it was a video recipe production by Paula Dean and her son - so cute - I love her voice! Anyway, my youngest daughter and I made them and they were a huge hit - even my teenage son and his girlfriend loved them and we had a delicious "breakfast for dinner" last night... hope you enjoy them too!

Paula Dean's Honey Wheat Pancakes

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 cups buttermilk
2 eggs
1/2 stick melted butter
1 TBSP honey

Mix dry ingredients together and then add to mixed wet ingredients with a wire wisk - do not over beat - the batter will have some lumps but don't worry they cook up beautifully.

I do not keep buttermilk on hand but here are 2 simple ways to substitute for it if you need it in a recipe:

1. 1 cup milk (I use skim rBST free) + 1 TBSP white vinegar - STIR
2. Plain yogurt substitutes cup for cup

We ate ours with butter and a drizzle of the organic blue agave nectar (from Costco) - delish!
