Whole Grain Pancakes

Whole wheat and corn pancakes served dairy-free and delicious.

Whole Grain, Dairy-Free Pancakes

As a kid, my mom was a director of a Suzuki violin and piano camp for several summers.  A piano teacher from Texas stayed at our house and made these pancakes for us.  After that, they became the standard pancake at our house.

Now, I make them for my own family.  The original recipe calls for buttermilk.  I’ve made them for years by replacing the buttermilk for water with vinegar.  The other day I read about substituting pureed beans for oil (see post Replacing Butter with Beans), and decided to try substituting some of the oil in this recipe.  The results were great.  So, I have included those changes in the recipe.
