  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk any variety
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 eggs
  • coconut oil for cooking


  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees and place a cookie sheet in the oven. Also, preheat a large skillet or griddle to medium heat and grease with coconut oil or nonstick spray.
  • In a large bowl, sift together the baking powder, flour and salt and lightly whisk.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the lemon juice and milk and let sit for 5 minutes. 
  • To the homemade buttermilk add in the eggs and whisk well.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  • Ladle 1/4 cup pancake batter onto the skillet. Cook until bubbles form and edges are dry. Flip pancakes and cook 1-2 minutes before removing from skillet and placing on cookie sheet in oven to hold warm.
  • Repeat with remaining batter. 


  • Instead of milk and lemon juice, you can use 2 cups + 2 tablespoons buttermilk.
  • Instead of lemon juice, apple cider vinegar or white vinegar will work. 
  • Instead of whole wheat pastry flour, you can use whole white wheat or whole wheat flour.
