Homemade Pancakes (using freshly ground flour)

You asked for it and here it is!

This is the recipe my hubby came up with for super yummy, homemade pancakes. Our kids LOVE them and we usually have them a couple times a week. Sometimes we add chocolate chips or blueberries and we always top with Real Maple Syrup.

Also, you can adjust the amount of milk as needed. I like thinner pancakes, so I thin mine out a bit with extra milk.

Please note, we use freshly ground flour when we make these. I am guessing they would turn out just fine using the same mixture of packaged white flour, spelt flour and whole wheat flour. Experiment and let me know how they turn out!

Bryan’s Homemade Pancakes

2 cups ground soft white wheat flour, or unbleached white flour (Buy Flour here)

1/2 cup ground spelt flour (Buy Spelt Flour)

1/2 cup ground hard red wheat flour, or whole wheat flour (Buy Flour here)

1 tsp salt (Buy Salt/Spices)

2 tsp baking powder  

1 tsp baking soda

2 cups buttermilk (or mix 2 cups whole milk with 2 Tbsp lemon juice – let sit for about 5 minutes and use this in place of buttermilk)

1 tsp vanilla

2 eggs

2 Tbsp melted coconut oil (Buy Coconut products)


Mix dry ingredients together.

Mix wet ingredients together.

Combine dry and wet ingredients and mix until batter is combined.

Heat griddle and add batter to form pancakes.


Top with Real Maple Syrup, fruit, butter, whipped cream or other desired toppings!

    Also do you mill your grain on fine for this? and do you sift the flour?

    2 things..can apple cider be used instead of lemon to make buttermilk?
    I mill my grain and than put it in the freezer..would this still be considered to be freshly ground for this recipe??

      Good question! I’m not sure…you may have to google it to find out? And yes, the way you are storing your flour would be fine for this. It also works just fine with “regular” flours from the store – it just tastes better when you mill your own! Enjoy!

    What a great recipe for pancakes!  I think I would like them just the way you have them, with stawberries and cream.  My mother is German and we grew up having fruit and sugar and lemon on our pancakes.  I still like them tat way.
    Thank you for sharing at the In and Out of the Kitchen Link party.  I can’t wait to see what you bring next week!

    I love pancakes and when they’re topped off with fruit I find it hard not to over indulge 🙂

    My husband bakes all of our bread and keeps talking about grinding his own grain. What do you notice that is different about it?

      @DianeBalch 1) its cheaper, 2) more nutrients remain intact, and 3) IT TASTES SO MUCH BETTER!!! Seriously, it is so much more flavorful!

        @RealFoodEater I will take your word for it and tell my husband OK with the grain mill if he really wants to do it. Thanks.

          @DianeBalch I don’t think you’ll regret it. The ONE downside is that it’s not quite as convenient as reaching into a bag of flour, but you can fix that by grinding more than you need and keeping it in a sealed container in the fridge for easy access. 🙂 Have fun!!!
