Fun with Healthier Pancakes

I have been having a lot of fun making my breakfasts higher in protein, lower in refined flours & sugars.  As pancakes are one of my favourite foods (and not just at breakfast time),  it seemed like a good candidate to spend some time on.  Here are some of my experiments to make a healthier, higher protein, naturally sweet meal.

Sweet5
Mashed banana & egg: served with homemade, low-sugar cranberry sauce
Sweet2
Grated apple, egg, oat bran flour, milk, cinnamon, baking powder
Sweet1
Bob’s Red Mill 10-Grain Flour, egg, milk, baking powder: with a touch of low-fat Greek yogurt & fruit on top

Verdict: even my sweet tooth can be assuaged with the addition of lots of fruit in and on top of these pancakes.  The firm family favourite:  The 10-Grain Pancakes, because they feel & taste most like regular pancakes!

Do you have a favourite food that you’ve made healthier?

  1. Ooh! I love your pancakes! I´m definitely going to try out the banana-egg version, maybe add a spoon of coconut flour though. 😉 I´m also trying to reduce my intake of refined sugar and even manage now to drink all my hot drinks without it – and I don´t even miss it!!

    1. Oooh, you use coconut flour! I have a bag sitting in my larder which my friend gifted me with. Have been hesitant to use it because all the recipes I’ve read look so challenging. Do you have any advice?

      Sugar is one of those funny things – the more we eat the more we want it!

      Hope you enjoy your pancakes!!!!
