Stack your breakfast menu with tasty nutritional goodness.

Nothing says “Good morning, beautiful” like a stack of delicious pancakes. The snag is that store-bought mixes and old-school recipes often leave an aftertaste measured in calories and inches.

The pancake recipes below incorporate ingredients like whole wheat flour and oat flour. Refined grains have been processed for a longer shelf life, but in the process are stripped of nutrients. Research has linked the consumption of refined grains to weight gain, type 2 diabetes, and heart problems [1]. Whole grains retain their nutrients, including B vitamins and ever-important fiber. As a result, women who choose these foods tend to weigh less and are less likely to struggle with chronic conditions like type 2 diabetes.

Another reason to love homemade healthy pancake recipes? They’re easy to adjust. Don’t be afraid to mix in a few extra berries or no-sugar-added fruit (in reasonable portions, of course). For tasty topping ideas, check out our Mixed Berry Chia Seed Jam and Clean-Eating Blueberry Jam or make the fig jam in this recipe.
