  1. Whisk all-purpose flour, oat flour, whole wheat flour, buttermilk, wheat germ, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl until well blended. Store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Whisk together 1 cup water and 1 egg and fold in 1 1/2 cup mix. Do not overmix. Pour batter onto non-stick griddle that is preheated to medium-high. When bubbles form on top of pancakes and begin to burst, flip pancakes and cook 1 to 2 minutes on other side. Serve immediately.
  • Variations:
  • 1. Mix in one ripe smashed banana and 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon to wet ingredients; gently stir in pancake mix.
  • 2. Fold 1 cup blueberries into prepared pancake mix.
  • 3. Smear peanut butter on top of warm pancakes and serve with syrup.

This is so good. I didn't have wheat germ so I substituted 1/2c flaxseed meal and 1/2c King Arthurs high fiber flour blend. I also used 1/2c coconut flour for 1/2 c wheat flour because I had it....
