Multi-Grain and Nut Pancakes

I have a little thing about homemade pancakes. I can’t seem to make the same ones twice. (Well, maybe I do!) But I love doctoring up the batter with fresh fruit, chocolate chips, cinnamon chips, and nuts. I’ve got a special multi-grain version to share with you today…using whole wheat, cornmeal and oats. Plus some pecans and walnuts.

These pancakes are a perfect way to use up the little bit of pecans or walnuts that end up in the bag from another recipe. (At least that’s what happens to me. I use nuts sparingly because they are more on the expensive side.)

Here is a fantastic recipe for a filing and delicious breakfast!

P.S. These are totally freezer friendly, so make an extra batch and freeze for those busy weekday mornings!
