No it’s not a typo, I meant Wit and not WITH 😉 Have you ever had a wit beer? It’s a Belgian Wheat Ale and is brewed with at least 25% wheat malt. Often they are fruity and slightly lemony because it’s very common to use coriander and orange peel in the brewing process. This beer style used to be my favorite and now I lean towards sours, but truly I think it depends on the season I’m in as far as what beer style is my favorite.
Anyways…because of my love for breakfast food and this beer style I thought…why not combine them together? These pancakes will fill you up because they use whole wheat flour and oats (hello, fiber!) but still have a sweetness from the orange and the beer. They’re great with syrup added on top but truth be told, I don’t think they need much when they’re already so flavorful. I might put a little vanilla yogurt on top, fresh fruit, or just a little butter. Snag the recipe below!
