The Best Healthy Pancake Recipes

 

Here at Fit Foodie Finds, we LOVE pancakes. Whether you’re a weekday pancake fan or you love brunching with pancakes on the weekends, this pancake roundup is for you! Read on for healthy pancake recipes ranging from classic pancakes to vegan pancakes to sweet potato pancakes, and everything in between.

But first, let’s chat about what Fit Foodie Kitchen has in our pantry at all times.

Fit Foodie Finds Pancake Pantry Items

We like to have everything we need for healthy pancake recipes at all times, because who the heck knows when we will get a sudden craving for some pancakes, some flapjacks, los panqueques, or some bite-sized silver dollars. Am I right?! One thing we have really strived for at FFF HQ is to make the perfect pancake, no matter what healthy pancake recipes we use. We have determined that making sure your pan is not too hot (be patient) and you don’t want your batter to be too thin. As long as those two things are at the front of your mind while mixing up your batter, you are in pretty good shape!

The last (and maybe most important) aspect of the perfect pancake are the TOPPINGS. The toppings I place a top my sweet tower of cakes totally depends on my mood. I love mixing sweet + savory, so a little greek yogurt and some nuts tend to be my go-to. However, you just can’t go wrong with peanut butter, maple syrup, or some hemp seeds.

Before we send you off to the best pancake recipes on the internet, here’s a basic pancake recipe that you can keep on hand. Spruce this up with whatever you so choose, whether it’s peanut butter, fruit, or something as off the wall as breakfast sausage. Happy flipping, party people.
