We have a tradition in our house to make pancakes every Saturday morning, so of course I wanted to find a good recipe that was also healthy (as healthy as pancakes get, right?). Today, I made heart-shaped pancakes for my 3 year old, who thought they were the best thing in the world and topped them with fresh bananas and powdered sugar. Needless to say, they were a big hit and we had a great Valentine’s Day breakfast.

The reason I love this recipe is that it is simple, very inexpensive (you’ll probably have most, if not all of these ingredients on hand), and versatile. I’ve altered the recipe to add everything including bananas, chocolate chips, pumpkin spice, vanilla, blueberries (or any other kind of berry that you like).

So, if you are interested in trying a new a DELICIOUS and NUTRITIOUS pancake recipe, try this one:

1 cup whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2-2 cups skim milk (depending on how thick you want the pancakes)
juice from 1/2 lemon

Nutritional Info (per serving):
2.1 g Fat

1. Mix all ingredients in large bowl
2. Pour 1/4 cup batter on hot greased (use Pam or something similar so you don’t add calories). Flip pancakes when bubbles appear and bottom is lightly browned.

Makes 4 Servings
If you try the recipe, let me know what you think! Have a recipe that you’d like me to try? Let me know-I’m always up for something new, easy, and healthy.
