Wellness Soldier’s Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes

The greatest thing about a Sunday morning is calling the family around the table for a nice and hearty pancake breakfast. Break out the butter, warm maple syrup, and fresh berries, get the family around the table and create some lasting memories.

When some people make pancakes they turn out flat and dull, that’s where the vinegar comes into play. When the vinegar reacts with the baking soda it starts puffing them up. You can alternately use buttermilk in place of the coconut milk and vinegar.
