March 4, 2019

The ultimate healthy pancake recipe round-up so you can have your favorite sweet brunch full of nutritious ingredients. Stack em’ high with this delicious round-up of 40 healthy pancake recipes from The Healthy Maven and around the web.

Forget Valentines Day, forget Fashion Week (already done), February is Pancake Month! Right? February is stacking up to be a seriously good month. In honor of this glorious holiday, I propose we celebrate with pancakes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Concerned you might get sick of pancakes? No such thing! Thanks to pancake revolutionaries like Aunt Jamima and the founders of IHOP, pancakes are super versatile, you could go a whole month without repeating a flavor. Customize your next batch to your liking, by using any flour, milk and toppings of your choice! So whether chocolate chips are your thing, or you like to get a little bit crazier by adding spinach into the mix, it’s time to batter up and chat all things pancakes.

Easy Healthy Pancake Recipe

Before we get into some of the best healthy pancake recipes on the web, I did want to share an easy healthy pancake recipe that you can customize yourself. Feel free to get crazy with the add-ins or toppings but you can always keep it simple and just drizzle a little maple syrup.

  • 1 1/2 cups flour (regular, whole wheat, oat flour – just no coconut flour!)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk (almond, coconut, oat all work great)
  • 1-2 tbsp maple syrup (for sweetness)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of add-ins of choice (chocolate chips, blueberries, nuts etc…)

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir until well-combined. Add more milk if batter is too thick. Heat up a skillet and add butter or coconut oil. Pour 1/3 cup of batter into skillet and let cook for about 3 minutes or until all air bubbles have popped. Flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes until cooked all the way through. Enjoy!

    This is such an awesome list! My husband loves pancakes, but they are super unhealthy for him. I can’t wait to try out some of these on him. I think he will really like the chocolate pancakes 🙂
