Whole Wheat Pancakes

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, so to celebrate my birthday I am sharing one of my favorite breakfast dishes.  I know you may be thinking, "but pancakes are so boring".  Truthfully, pancakes are an art.  To get the perfect light, fluffy pancake, you've got to practice, and not get distracted while you are cooking them too (that has been known to happen at our house).  Pancakes from scratch are so much better than they are from a mix, and they really don't take much time to mix up.  Add a little butter and some maple syrup and, mmmm... perfection! 
Whole Wheat Pancakes
serves 4-5

1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour (freshly milled is best if you can)
2 tbsp sugar
3/4 tsp salt
3 tsp baking powder
1 egg
1 cup milk
3 tbsp coconut oil, melted

In a medium bowl, mix the dry ingredients.  Whisk in milk, egg and oil until no lumps remain.  Meanwhile, heat your griddle over medium heat.  When pan is heated, pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto the pan and cook until large bubbles form in the center of the pancake, turn and cook on the other side.  Serve with butter and warm maple syrup.
