    I love pancakes and appreciate that there are a lot in Spark recipes to choose from. Even so, I found some new ones here to try. The low fat, use of egg sub or egg whites has taught me a lot I needed to know with cholesterol concerns. - 6/19/2017   1:06:14 PM

    My kids love pancakes. Making pancakes from scratch is super easy and much healthier. I make ours with a mix of whole grain flours and flaxseed. Mine are high protein because I use eggs, greek yogurt & protein powder. Since I use yogurt, I don't have to add butter or oil or any sugar. I also always add fruit and a lot of times even veggies like carrots or spinach. There are so many different varieties that you can make. My kids also never add syrup or butter. I choose not to raise them with that unnecessary bad habit. When their friends spend the night they all say that my pancakes are the best and I just smile knowing that they are eating something super healthy. - 4/25/2017   2:02:53 AM

    Cottage Cheese Oatmeal Pancakes and the Peanut Butter And Banana Pancakes, and Carrot Cake Pancakes all sound really good, although the sodium is more than I wanted for the carrot cake ones and the peanut butter ones. I will be trying the cottage cheese ones though. - 11/5/2016   6:25:34 PM

    I might try the oatmeal ones, but ever since I discovered the low-carb almond meal pancakes (SP Recipe), we don't make anything else. No flour and gluten-free, BTW. I have tweaked the recipe a little bit. I use 1/2 almond meal flour, (Bob's Red Mill or homemade) and 1/2 cup oat or barley flour, instead of 1/2 almond meal and 1/2 rice flour. I use a TBL of coconut oil mixed with the egg and milk, and I usually add blueberries. DH uses maple syrup, but I often eat them as is. These are so satisfying, I don't get hungry for hours.

    LOL - not the pancake that's the problem - it's the syrup substitute.

    I microwave 2 cut up apples with a tsp. of sugar (or splenda) till they're soft, then stir in a little milk. On waffles or pancakes it makes everything taste like apple cake. - 4/24/2013   6:25:56 AM

    Sounds good. I can't eat bread or anything that is like bread because of swallowing issues....but pancakes sound delicious. - 4/23/2013   9:22:25 PM

    Does anyone have another recipe for healthy flourless pancakes? Thanks. :) - 4/23/2013   9:05:12 AM
    what about flourless pancakes???
    1 egg and 1 ripe banana (it must be very ripe) - 4/23/2013   7:29:25 AM

    I have a recipe for a pancake mix that you can use like Bisquick, but whole wheat pancakes.

    This recipe is from Allrecipes.com. The calories count is just for the dry ingredients.


    3 cups all-purpose flour
    3 cups whole wheat flour
    2/3 cup sugar
    2 tablespoons baking powder
    1 tablespoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 large egg whites
    3/4 cup nonfat milk
    2 large egg whites
    3/4 cup nonfat milk
    1 medium ripe banana, mashed
    3/4 cup blueberries


    In a bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place for up to 6 months.
    2. To prepare pancakes: In a bowl, combine egg and milk. Whisk in 1 cup pancake mix. Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a lightly greased hot griddle; turn when bubbles form on top of pancakes. Cook until second side is golden brown
    3. To prepare blueberry banana pancakes: In a bowl, combine egg, milk and banana. Whisk in 1 cup pancake mix. Fold in blueberries. Cook as directed above.

    I'll be trying the peanut butter and banana pancakes. I love peanut butter and bananas. I used to eat high calorie peanut butte pancakes at I Hop. Looking forward to eating healthier version. - 5/14/2011   7:38:31 AM

    We love pancakes. My husband makes crepes sometimes on the weekend. I'd love to try the blueberry oatmeal. I should be trying the 100 calorie pancakes. - 5/12/2011   5:15:40 PM

    Banana Applesauce and Cinnamon are my first choices. - 5/12/2011   1:57:42 PM

    I usually use the boxed whole wheat pancake mix, with egg substitute - fabulous with unsweetened applesauce! - 5/12/2011   11:20:08 AM
    do not like pancakes never have. have not made any since the kids grew up and left home (20 years) - 5/12/2011   9:30:37 AM

    After reviewing some of these, I am shocked they made it to the HEALTHY list. The carrot ones have over 400 mg of sodium per serving. That is a bit crazy for pancakes. Some are made from boxed, processed refined ingredients and it just solidifies my resolve to stay away from pancakes...period. - 5/12/2011   8:53:13 AM

    LIZABAKER - I agree with you! - 5/12/2011   5:55:27 AM
  • 10
    ah. upon rereading the recipes, i find they're full of processed ingredients.... how about just making them with real sugar, real milk, real eggs...and just eating fewer of them? - 5/12/2011   5:50:20 AM

    These all sound great, but I'm confused: what's unhealthy about pancakes to begin with?!? Made with whole wheat flour, milk, egg, a tiny bit of sugar.... What's to dislike? - 5/12/2011   5:48:40 AM

    Yum! I gotta try me some of them cinnamon pancakes! The pumpkin panacakes also sound yummy! - 5/12/2011   1:59:54 AM

    I've tried the cinnamon pancakes - fabulous; want to try the pumpkin ones next. - 5/11/2011   11:41:58 PM
    I will be trying the banana applesauce pancakes!
    I'm sure these probably aren't the healthiest pancakes but I love Shari's pancakes! - 5/11/2011   11:19:54 PM
