How to Make Healthy Pancakes (Page 2)

Use Whole-Wheat Flour to Boost Fiber

1. Use Whole-Wheat Flour to Boost Fiber

Most traditional pancake recipes call for white flour, which has a neutral flavor but doesn’t offer much in the way of nutrition. To make healthy pancakes, use whole-wheat flour instead. Whole-wheat flour has 16 grams of fiber per cup compared to 3 grams of fiber in white flour. For milder flavor, you can use white whole-wheat flour, which is most similar to white flour with a slightly nutty flavor, but regular whole-wheat flour will also work. If you’re hesitant to make 100% whole-wheat pancakes, start by replacing half the white flour with whole-wheat flour in your recipe to get used to the difference.
