Whole Grain Fresh Peach Pancakes

Ok, it's time for some serious talk! Ripe, fresh peaches, in season, are on my top 5 most favorite things to eat. Pancakes are in there too. So, why I never before brought those two together in beloved matrimony is BEYOND ME! I can't believe I never thought to make these. I'm so totally kicking myself for not doing it until now.

Of course, I love the fresh peach flavor and the little bits of peach all throughout the batter, but I also love that I can use my Wheat-Oat Pancake Mix, keeping it healthy and quick.

I topped my pancakes with a few more slices of peach and some syrup. However, I think homemade ginger syrup and a dollop of whipped cream would be heavenly too!

Whole Grain Peach Pancakes
1 cup Wheat-Oat Pancake Mix
1 tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
pinch cloves
pinch nutmeg
1 cup buttermilk
1 egg
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup fresh peaches, chopped

In a small mixing bowl, mix together 1 cup of pancake mix, sugar and spices. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the buttermilk, egg, oil and vanilla and whisk to combine. Add in dry ingredients and stir to combine. Fold in chopped peaches. Let batter sit while griddle heats up.

Drop batter by 1/4 cup onto griddle. Cook until bubbles start to form and edges start looking dry. Flip pancakes and cook on other side another minute or two.

Serve warm with syrup of your choice and other toppings as desired.
