Studies show that eating whole grains instead of refined grains lowers the risk of many chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes and obesity. Health experts advise that grains should be a part of a healthy diet, and that at least half our grains should be consumed as “whole grains.” Unless you have celiac disease, or some sort of gluten sensitivity, you don’t want to miss out on the health benefits of whole grains. To help you start reaping the benefits of a diet rich in whole grains, we’re sharing this recipe for our favorite whole grain pancakes! Delicious and nutritious!

Note: While spelt and barley are lower in gluten than wheat, they are not gluten-free. Do not use this flour blend if you have a gluten intolerance or celiac disease.
