Sometimes my kids want pancakes for dinner. I try not to limit them too much with food. I prefer that they eat a healthy dinner but I also want to be flexible and let them have a say too. So I figured out a way to make healthier pancakes. Yes, they still have sugar. But they are still healthier than the average pancake. Whole wheat flour is more dense that white flour so these pancakes are more filling.
I managed to sneak some protein in there too, lol, using Trader Joe’s Creamy Almond Butter.
It took about ten minutes to make and I let them participate.
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 cup milk
- 1/4 cup oil
- 1/3 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp Trader Joe's Creamy Almond Butter
- In a mixing bowl, add all the liquid ingredients first with eggs and then add flour, salt, sugar, backing soda, and baking powder and mix well.Add butter to a pan and heat up. When melted just scoop out about a half cup of batter. Lower heat and wait for bubbles to come up. When there are bubbles all over the pancake flip it and let it sit for a few minutes.
Done! Add honey instead of syrup.
