Favorite Pancakes

Do you know what my favorite thing is? Enjoying a delicious recipe that is ridiculously healthy! Enter, new favorite pancakes.

1 c. whole-wheat flour
1/2 c. rolled oats
1/4 c. wheat bran (you can also crush up some bran cereal - it works the same)
3 T. flax seed
3 T. brown sugar
1/4 t. salt
1/2 t. baking soda
1 t. baking powder
2 c. buttermilk
1 egg
1 t. vanilla extract
(and next time I'll consider 1-2 t. cinnamon)

Mix together dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add the egg and vanilla to the buttermilk and beat until smooth. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the milk mixture. Stir just until mixed, leaving some lumps. Cover and let sit for about 10 minutes (or you can put it in the fridge overnight and make it the next morning). Heat a skillet over medium heat (we used our electric griddle set at 400 degrees), grease with butter and then add 1/4 c. of batter for each pancake. Flip when bubbly, remove when golden brown. Serve with berries, applesauce, or grade B maple syrup.
