Revised Easy-Ginger Wheat Pancakes

This recipe is based on one taken from a book I got at the Free Library, the one at the local dump. It is taken from the 1982 edition of the New Natural Foods Cookbook by Jean Hewitt. Recipe posted for Carol and Gerry.

1 and 1/4 cup buttermilk
1 egg
1 Tbs. melted butter or oil
1 Tbs. brown sugar
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 Tbs. flax seed meal
some wheat bran (2-4 Tbs.)
finely chopped crystallized ginger (to taste)

In one bowl whisk together first 3 ingredients. Put everything else in a second bowl and mix. Combine the ingredients in each of the two bowls. You can change amount of the last three ingredients. Go overboard on the chopped crystallized ginger, at least 1/4 cup, maybe more. Organic crystallized ginger from the local health food store is 100 times better than what I get at Belmonts. Cook and Enjoy.
