First, an introduction. If you went to a diner and ordered pancakes, they would be fluffy, hot, and that perfect pancake flavor. If you had a friend who was a hippie and you went to their house for breakfast, you would expect them to be whole wheat with that warm nuttiness and a rich flavor. Now, imagine that your friend opened a diner. Yep. that’s what you call the perfect storm. People, this is the perfect pancake.

Hippie Diner Pancakes

1 Cup whole wheat Flour

1/3 Cup Sugar

1 Teaspoon baking powder

1/2 Teaspoon baking soda

1/4 Teaspoon salt

1 Cup buttermilk

1/3 Cup oil

1 egg, separated

1/2 Teaspoon vanilla

1/3 cup milk

First, combine all the dry ingredients in a small bowl. In a medium bowl beat the egg white till stiff peaks form. Next, add the yolk, oil, and vanilla and combine. If you don’t have buttermilk add a teaspoon of white vinegar to the milk and let sit for a minute. Once done, fold into the egg mixture, alternating with the flour mixture. Add the 1/3 cup milk  to desired consistency. Different strokes for different folks, right? everyone likes their pancakes a different consistency. Personally, I like them thinner with a little bit of oil in the pan–like fritters. But enough about fat.
