Healthy Pancakes

There are several ways that you can top these delicious, healthy pancakes.
My favorite is pure organic maple syrup. Im not talking about the fake syrup stuff you buy in the pancake section at your local grocery store. Im talking about real, pure, organic maple syrup. Its much healthier for you, and is a great alternative to syrups. Maple syrup is not refined or processed which makes it your healthiest sweet option for a pancake topping.

Pancake Ingredients:

1 cup whole grain flour or coconut flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
teaspoon sea salt
teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 tablespoon raw honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 whole egg (or 2 egg whites)
1 cup unsweetened Almond Milk
apple, peeled and shredded


1)On stovetop, heat a non-stick griddle pan or skillet over medium heat. Pan is ready for pancake batter when a drop of water is thrown into pan, and it sizzles.

2)While pan is warming, mix all dry ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.

3)In a separate and larger mixing bowl, beat eggs for about a minute. Add Almond Milk, vanilla, and honey and mix well.

4)Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients slowly. Stir with a large fork, incorporating all of the flour mixture into the wet ingredients until batter has no flour lumps. Do not over mix.

5)Add shredded apple to batter and incorporate well.

6)When skillet is ready, pour to cups of batter into pan to form pancakes. When pancake tops have formed several bubbles, flip pancakes over and cook for another minute or two, and remove. Repeat process until batter is used up.

Makes 6 to 8 pancakes, depending on the size.

Pancake Toppings:

1)No sugar added applesauce
2)Natural organic maple syrup
3)Greek yogurt with fresh fruit
4)Fresh fruit with a few crushed walnuts
5)Natural nut butters, 2 tablespoons, topped with fruit
6)Top with scrambled eggs and roll up for a portable breakfast!
7)Stewed fruits and shredded raw coconut with a few crumbled pecans

Pancake toppings can be fun, healthy, and made to order!
