Breakfast | Whole Grain Buttermilk Pancakes

We do breakfast for dinner at our house at least once a week. 
Buttermilk pancakes are the BEST pancakes hands down. 
(well they come in a close tie next to my pumpkin griddle cakes)
To spice things up a bit for the kiddos we use pancake molds. 
Trust me, when pancakes look this cute - kids can't resist them!
One plate of ABC's - One plate of 123's
And just like that they are all gobbled up!

Whole Grain Buttermilk Pancakes
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup oats (what ever kind you have on hand)
1/3 cup fine ground yellow cornmeal
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups buttermilk
2 eggs
2 tablespoons real butter, melted
2 tablespoons molasses

Mix first 7 ingredients in a medium bowl, set aside. In a large bowl whisk buttermilk, eggs, melted butter and molasses. Add dry ingredients; mix just until blended. Heat griddle and brush with butter. Drop 1/4 cup batter onto griddle for each pancake. Cook until brown. Serve with pure maple syrup, almond butter, fruit... what ever your little heart desires. ENJOY!

Did you know you could substitute buttermilk with greek yogurt? I didn't until tonight when I realized we didn't have 2 cups of buttermilk in the fridge. My best friend google told me about the substitute. We swapped a cup of buttermilk for a cup of yogurt. The pancakes turned out fabulous!
