There are few things in life better than a good pancake. Here in Austin, we have the wonder of Kerbey Lane who serves the world's most amazing pancakes (and queso but that's another recipe). When I'm not in the mood to roll my crazy haired, sleep-faced self out of bed and go fight the bible beaters for my pancakes - I make these at home.

Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes

- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups low-fat buttermilk
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 large egg
- 1 large egg white
- Cooking spray
- 3/4 cup maple syrup
- 3 tablespoons butter

Lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups and level with a knife.

Whisk together the flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, oil, egg, and egg white. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist.

Heat a nonstick griddle or nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Spoon about 1/4 cup batter per pancake onto griddle. Turn pancakes over when tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Devour with syrup and butter, glaring repeatedly at anyone who you think is taking your share. :)
