  • 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 - 1 1/12 cups water Depending on how thick you like your pancakes
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil OPTIONAL
  • 1/4 tsp salt OPTIONAL


  • In a medium-size bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Pour in the oil, water, and maple syrup. Whisk until no lumps are present. 
  • Heat a large non-stick  frying pan to 375f (medium-low)
  • Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the frying pan.
  • Flip the pancake once bubbles around the edge begin to pop.
  • Top with Maple Syrup and Serve immediately!


I cannot stress this enough, SALT and OIL are OPTIONAL
When I make these for myself I never include salt and oil. I even skip out of the syrup too. I only add oil to get more of a "fluffy" pancake. Its not overly necessary and you can even substitute it for coconut oil, or even peanut butter!
