Wheat Germ Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes

With my husband still being out of town, we had pancakes for dinner a few nights ago (although we have them for dinner when he is here, too).  This recipe is one of the 1st 100% whole-wheat pancake recipes that I tried and liked.  It uses buttermilk and whole wheat pastry flour, which make the pancakes light and fluffy.  They are very good!  To change it up, you could use part oat flour, and add some ground flax seeds, or blueberries!  Wheat germ is very heatlhy for you- it contains B Vitamins, Vit A & E, iron, calcium, zinc, protein, and Omega-3's, to name just a few. 

I made the whole batch for just me and the kids, and thought I'd have leftover batter... but we ate them ALL!  The kids all love these pancakes.  Serve with real maple syrup, or homemade strawberry freezer jam.  :)
