How to Make Healthy Pancakes (Page 3)

Use Skim Milk or Buttermilk Instead of Whole Milk

2. Use Skim Milk or Buttermilk Instead of Whole Milk

Any additional flavor we get from using whole milk in pancake batter isn’t worth the extra fat or calories. We would rather melt just a little bit of butter on top of the pancakes where we can really taste it. Replace the whole milk in your pancake mix with skim milk or, better yet, buttermilk. Buttermilk (despite its rich-sounding name) is naturally nearly fat-free and it adds a nice tanginess to the pancakes that you can’t get from regular milk.
