perfect weekend pancakes

This easy, whole grain pancake recipe is perfect after sleeping in on the weekends, or even just making in the morning because you have an extra 20 minutes.

You don’t need a reason to make these, especially since all the ingredients are wholesome, and already in your pantry!

So what are you waiting for?
Pancakes for dinner!

Serves 2


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (substitute water or other plant-based milk of choice)
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup (or sweetener of choice)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  1. Mix together the flour, baking powder, sea salt and cinnamon in a bowl.
  2. Add the unsweetened almond milk, vanilla and maple syrup and stir until “just mixed.”
  3. Let the batter sit for 5-10 minutes. (Optional, but I found they come out fluffier this way.) Let the pan heat up while you wait.
  4. Cook in 1/4-1/2 cup portions in a lightly oiled non-stick pan over medium-high heat.
  5. Once there are a few bubbles in the middle, flip and cook for a few more minutes on the other side.
  6. Serve and enjoy!

I topped mine with banana slices, peanut butter drizzle, and maple syrup. I also added chocolate chips because plain pancakes are never as good as chocolate chip! Here’s a pic of my own construction, but feel free to experiment!

Like many businesses we were psyched to get commercial plates so that we could park in loading zones and avoid the musical chairs of city parking meters. That excitement turned when in a state inspection our car was deemed to have several thousand dollars worth of repairs. Sitting at the car dealership I came to the conclusion that this was the time to switch to Zipcar. I figured this decision was sound, it fit our triple bottom line paradigm; it was good for the environment as we could reduce our carbon footprint by utilizing public transportation and hauling supplies to and from each location by hand, it was good for the community as businesses like Zipcar with car sharing models deserve to be encouraged to expand by our spending vote, and it was good for VIM as it gave us more exercise and is significantly less expensive. It turns out that the unforeseen benefit is that Zipcar is really easy to use and we were able to set up a company account that allows employees to zip for less. I know I sound like a cheerleader and you’re thinking “did Zipcar pay them to say that?” We’re just so happy with the decision we want to encourage other businesses to do the same.
