These pancakes are a terrific way to pack in the vitamins for a healthy and hearty breakfast that’s deliciously filling and will give you the energy to start your day right.


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
  • 1/3 cup chopped toasted walnuts
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup apple juice concentrate
  • 3/4 cup mashed sweet potato
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, plus 2 teaspoons
  • 2 large eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup very finely chopped dried apricots


  1. In a large mixing bowl whisk together the flour, wheat germ, walnuts, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk the milk, juice concentrate, sweet potato, 2 tablespoons of oil, eggs and vanilla together until smooth.
  3. Pour the bowl of wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients. Stir to combine, then stir in the apricots.
  4. In a large nonstick skillet or griddle, heat a teaspoon of oil. Spoon batter onto surface using 1/4 cup measuring cup. Batter will be thick, and if you wish you can spread it around a bit to create thinner pancakes. Flip when edges are done, about 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. Cook other side for about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, or until golden brown. Repeat with remaining batter and add oil to the cooking surface as needed.
