Pancakes were the very first food I made Dave, the morning after our wedding — they have been a favorite food of ours ever since.

I’ve “healthified” my pancake recipes quite a bit over the last several years; most recently with the addition of freshly ground grains! Today, I’m sharing our family’s top favorite — whole grain oat pancakes (and no, you don’t need to grind your own grain to make them!)
