Honey, Wheat and Flaxseed Pancakes {Healthy}

Honey Whole Wheat and Flaxseed Pancakes by Picky Palate www.picky-palate.com

Another edition to “Skinny Palate” for you today!  As much as I love my favorite pancakes from my Cookbook, page 21 to be exact, I also like to prepare a healthy version of them that I am sharing today.

I used Gold Medal Flour’s White Wheat Flour, ground flaxseed and no sugar.  I use honey as the sweetener and no oil.  I am not kidding when I tell you that my 7 year old can NOT tell the difference between these and my original pancakes from my cookbook.

If you’d like a healthier option for a pancake, I highly recommend my recipe.  You literally add all the ingredients to one mixing bowl and you are ready to go.  Easy and fabulous!

Enjoy friends!

whole wheat and flax

Add your white wheat flour and flaxseed right to the bowl.

baking soda, buttermilk and egg

Add your baking soda, pinch of salt, buttermilk and egg.

Had to take a photo of the swirling ingredients.  I’m officially a foodie nerd.

vanilla and honey

Vanilla and honey time!  Give it all a good mix and we’re ready to make some pancakes.

forming pancakes

Spoon your batter into a nice hot non-stick skillet, form it into nice circle and let it cook until golden.

flipping pancakes

Flip your pancake when golden brown like so.

Once cooked on both sides, stack your pancakes onto a plate and get ready to eat!

Honey, Wheat and Flaxseed Pancakes {Healthy}

Honey Whole Wheat and Flaxseed Pancakes by Picky Palate www.picky-palate.com Ingredients

  • 1 cup Gold Medal White Wheat Flour
  • 3 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons honey

Directions

  1. Place all ingredients into a large mixing bowl, stirring to combine.
  2. Heat a medium non-stick skillet to medium heat. Spoon a few tablespoons of batter into the center of your skillet. With a spoon, form your batter into a nice round pancake. Let cook for about 2 minutes or until bottom is golden brown. Flip and cook for an additional minute or so until browned and cooked through. Transfer each pancake to a plate until all batter is used up.
  3. Serve these healthy pancakes with pure maple syrup and sliced/chopped fruit. We like to spread a thin layer of peanut butter on our pancakes and top with berries then syrup.

Makes 8-11 3 inch pancakes

    Hello! I stumbled upon this post on Pinterest, and I wanted to invite you to share this recipe – or any healthy meal/snack you’ve enjoyed over the past month – at my link-up (http://bit.ly/YCpeHq) to celebrate National Nutrition Month. I’m inviting people to come together to celebrate all of the different ways to eat healthfully, and I think my readers would love these pancakes!

    Jillian says:

    Just made these for a late-day snack. I used unbleached all-purpose flour, and had to make my own buttermilk with the milk + lemon juice method, but they turned out so yummy! Mine came out a bit thinner (I got 14 pancakes out of this), which may have been because of my swaps, but delicious all the same!

    Lucy says:

    These were delicious, I didn’t use buttermilk and used Greek yogurt then plain milk till it was the right consistancy. Satisfied my pregnant pancake craving and felt pretty good about what I ate.
