Ingredients

  • ½ cup wheat germ

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 3 cups buttermilk

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

  • cooking spray

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Spread wheat germ over a baking sheet.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until toasted, about 5 minutes. Cool slightly, then transfer wheat germ to a large bowl.

  4. Stir flour, baking soda, and salt into wheat germ. Beat buttermilk, eggs, and oil in another bowl until smooth; pour egg mixture into flour mixture and stir until batter is just blended.

  5. Heat griddle over medium-high heat and coat with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cup portions of batter onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, about 3 minutes more. Repeat with remaining batter.
