These pancakes are made with some whole wheat flour so they’ll fill you up a bit more than regular pancakes do. Whole wheat flour is a little heavy so the vinegar and baking soda combination helps to add some fluffiness.

This recipe makes a lot of pancakes! Leftovers are great the next morning cooked in the toaster.

These pancakes are also great to make while camping. Just mix all the dry ingredients before hand to save time and packing space.


A more filling pancake but still light and fluffy.
