Healthy Whole Wheat Pancakes

No matter how early it is or how groggy I am or how little coffee I’ve had to drink, mornings will always be made better with PANCAKES.  Specifically, these Healthy Whole Wheat Pancakes.  They’re SO simple to make, SO quick to whip up, and SO easy to eat.

Did I mention they’re SO damn good with a drizzle of pure maple syrup (or Homemade Maple Syrup!) and fresh fruit?  No?  Well, they are.  And you need to try it.

If your morning has been particularly rough (like starting the coffee maker and forgetting to put water in the machine *rolls eyes*), then you need to make these pancakes ASAP.

And maybe make them a bit more decadent to help compensate for a not-so-smooth morning.

A pat (or two) of organic butter?  Sure thing.

A healthy (or excessive) amount of natural whipped cream.  Absolutely.

A sprinkle (downpour?) of mini chocolate chips?  Hell yeah.

Weekend forecast:  a batch of these Whole Wheat Pancakes with a chance of (maple syrup) drizzle.
