Happy Valentine’s Day! My gift to you is to share this delicious and healthy whole wheat pancake recipe that yields light, fluffy, crispy-edged pancakes. These are excellent and escape the hockey-puck fate that too many whole grain pancakes meet. And only 2 tsp sugar for the whole recipe! They are divine. Try them, try them, you will see :)

(to get a heart shaped pancake I place a metal cookie cutter on the griddle and allow the batter to set up inside). 

These would be the perfect vehicle for a little homemade strawberry syrup, don’t you think?

    Yay! Glad to see you’re posting again. These do look delicious. I like that they’re kinda crispy on the outside.

    I am intrigued by this cookie-cutter-pancake-shapping thing you did. I’ve seen it on pinterest a bit too. My question is: Does the cookie cutter cause problems when it comes time to flip the pancake? I’m prone to burning myself, so should I avoid this technique? And confession: I don’t (yet) own any cookie cutters. Can we still be friends?

      Hey Diana! haha of course. I only have a few myself. I actually had to go buy a heart shaped cookie cutter this year because I was assigned to bring heart sugar cookies to Christian’s preschool. :) So I just set the cutter on the griddle, and gave the batter plenty of time to set up, so you want the griddle to not be way too hot or the bottom will cook too fast. So like medium-low. Then I used cooking tongs to just remove the cutter and set it aside – it does get hot., Then just flipped the pancake over to finish and it mostly held the shape. So go for it, if you’ve got some tongs to keep your fingers safe :) I got mine cheap at Target. Also, this is a more time consuming way to do pancakes – I only did the boys’ that way. For Mark and I, just threw them on the griddle as usual. I was not about to spend 45 minutes just cooking the darn things!
