- 2 large eggs
- 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil (you can also use coconut oil)
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Butter for cooking, plus more for serving
- Maple syrup, if desired
- Fresh fruit, if desired
In a large bowl whisk the eggs, sugar, oil, buttermilk, and vanilla until well combined. Add the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt and stir just until combined. Do not overmix, the batter will likely be lumpy and that’s fine.
Heat an electric griddle to 375°F or heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat and grease the surface with butter. Ladle 1/4 cup spoonfuls of pancake batter onto the hot surface, gently pushing the batter to form a disk. Cook for a couple of minutes, or until bubbles begin to form on the surface of the pancake and the bottom is golden. Carefully flip and cook until the other side is golden. If necessary, keep warm in a 300°F oven until ready to serve. Serve with additional butter, fruit, and maple syrup, if desired.
