Healthy Multi-Grain Panacakes

Yummo!!  Who doesn't love pancakes for breakfast.  You can use multi-grain flour or whole wheat flour.  I also suggest whole wheat oats if you can find them.    If you must have butter, then make sure you  use raw butter only but butter is not vegan.

To top the pancakes, I suggest raw honey or fruit.  You can look for jams with no sugar, but it is always best to make your own. But for convenience the no sugar added jams or jelly would work.

As the picture shows, a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice is wonderful to go along the side.
