Whole Wheat Vegan Blueberry Stuffed Pancakes

Did you think you had to fore sake pancakes forever to maintain your girlish (or boyish) figure? Think again. Hodgson Mill makes a "Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancake Mix" from whole wheat flour, whole grain yellow cornmeal and a few other ingredients and it's totally E2 approved. Rip Esselstyn mentions "whole grain pancake and muffin mixes" as a pantry staple to keep at all times in your Engine 2 healthy kitchen.

I happened upon the whole grain mix yesterday when shopping at Miles Road Market for our 4th of July barbecue so I thought we would treat ourselves this holiday morning. I used Ener G egg replacer instead of the eggs and almond milk instead of cow's milk,  but I was too chicken to do anything about the oil that the pancake recipe called for, so I did use canola oil. Next time I will definitely substitute apple sauce for the oil. Then I loaded in all of the fresh blueberries that the mix could handle. The results were AMAZING. And finally, my photos do my food justice!

Scott made blueberry pancakes this weekend, too! So delish! We didn't use the Ener-G egg replacers, though -- will have to give it a try.

Seriously, I'm making one of these photos my laptop wallpaper. They are absolutely gorgeous.

I'm not sure why you need a mix.
I make my own. Here's the recipe.

1 cup whole wheat white flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons of sweetener of your choice (optional) Agave, honey, etc.

Use a substitute for one egg - flaxseed meal "egg", 1/2 banana, applesauce, or egg replacement.

1 1/4 cup soy or almond milk.
(more if necessary)
1/2 cup blueberries.

If you like the convenience of mixes, just package your own homemade mixes for the shelf.

Hope you enjoy.

RE: Pancake Mix

Ugh I made a mistake - increase the flour to 1 and 1/4 cups. Thanks

Great suggestion Denise! Thank you!

Denise, just tried your recipe. Fabulous! Thanks so much!

I have another recipe that I perfected - it's for pancakes made from oatmeal - no flour. Like them even better than the whole wheat pancakes!
