Healthy pancake recipe

By Carolin 

First of all making pancakes with fresh ingredients it is so easy. Making it yourself gives you food that is fresh, mold free, free of additives and less expensive.

Then take the step to change your pancakes from the average junk food to healthy .
It is really easy. Simply swap the white flour for spelt flour. Spelt has a great taste and it contains a lot of nutrition. Use half whole flour and half refined.

If you use only refined spelt flour your kids won’t know the difference from their regular pancakes. Refined flour is put through a finer sieve to remove a large percentage of the bran. This gives a finer flour more like our regular wheat flour.


This is a great . The pancakes are easy to cook and taste great.
This is enough for 2 kids and 1 adult.

2 cups of refined spelt flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
4 eggs
4 teaspoons raw cane sugar
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups milk

Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar.

In a separate bowl, combine egg and milk; add to flour mixture, stirring only until smooth. Blend in the oil.

Serve the pancakes with fresh fruits and berries.

If you need an extra sweetener use maple syrup, honey, chopped dates or raw cane sugar.

    Great idea of making a healthy food that kids will still love. I wonder if spelt flour could easily be found in the supermarkets. It was nice that you chose to use olive oil instead of the regular cooking oil. What kind of milk would be appropriate for this?

    Milk is a very personal choice that many people have strong feelings about.
    Personally I use a lot of rice milk, oats milk when I can get my hands on it and organic cows milk. For pancakes I usually combine 2 different milks, for example half rice milk and half organic cows milk.
