In our home, our basic pancake recipe has evolved over time to 100% whole wheat pancake.  My kids still love them and I feel great knowing that they are eating whole grains for breakfast.  In fact, when they recently ate pancakes with white flour on a trip, one of my kids said, “I like your pancakes better, Mom.”  Win!  I never thought I’d hear that.  I worked up to 100% whole wheat by swapping half whole white wheat into our Easy Egg Free, Dairy Free Pancake recipe and increased the amount over time.  By doing it gradually, it isn’t a big change in flavor or on the digestive track.

Many times I add a plant protein powder to my pancakes sometimes to make the pancakes a little more filling and hearty.  This is optional, but it does help when you have kids with bottomless pits for stomachs, which is where we are finding ourselves with a teen and a tween lately.  I usually make two batches and refrigerate or freeze the extras so I have a quick breakfast option on hand.  Be sure you pancakes are cool before storing and add a piece of wax paper or parchment paper between pancakes before you freeze them so they don’t stick together.

Healthy Whole Wheat Pancakes (Egg-free, dairy-free)

Pancakes are a staple in our home.  I make our pancakes with whole wheat and plant-based protein powder so I feel like my kids are getting a healthy, hearty start to the day.  We make two batches and freeze extra so we can have some pancakes on hand any given morning.  I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Scoops Livfit Superfood Organic Plant Protein (optional)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 2 cups soy or coconut milk
  • 1/4 cups canola oil

Instructions

  1. Heat griddle or large skillet to medium heat (about 350 degrees).  I get the best results if I use the batter immediately.  A griddle can be helpful to cook multiple pancakes at once.

  2. Mix flour, sugar, protein powder, baking powder and salt together in a large bowl.  Add applesauce, milk and oil.  Blend well, but do not over-mix.  I prefer to use a whisk.

  3. Pour approximately 1/3 cup of batter onto the griddle for each pancake.  Cook until pancake batter begins to look puffy and dry around the edges.  Flip and cook the other side until golden.
