In a large bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients. In another bowl, whisk together all of the wet ingredients. Whisk together dry and wet ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Mixture should be the consistency of a thin pancake batter..
Lightly coat a large skillet or griddle with nonstick cooking or oil. Turn to medium heat. Add 1/4 cup of pancake mix. Smooth into rounds with the back of a ladle or spoon.
Allow the pancakes to cook for about 3 to 4 minutes until bubbles form on the surface and they are golden on the bottom, and easy to flip. Cook for an additional 3 minutes, or until golden on the bottom. Place on a plate when done and cover with a towel while the other pancakes are cooking.
Serve with a dollop of sour cream or Greek yogurt, if desired, and/or with pure maple syrup. Enjoy!
