A Healthy Pancake Recipe

As I mentioned the other day, I’m struggling with finding yummy stuff to eat for the gestational diabetes so I thought I would share some of the recipes I have found :)

This first one we had for breakfast on Monday morning, pancakes are a semi regular occurance in our house so I was a bit worried about messing with our usual cup or flour, cup of milk, egg & sugar routine. I was happy when Mr Z declared them “the best pancakes ever” so I think our usual recipe is going to be changed from now on.

  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1/8 cup canola oil
  • 1 ¼ cup low-fat buttermilk*
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tbs flaxseed meal (alos called linseed meal)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt

* if you don’t have buttermilk (which I never do) you can just put 1tbs of white vinegar in a cup & then fill with milk to make 1 1/4 cup.

  1. Whisk together flour, flaxseed meal, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix eggs with oil and buttermilk.
  3. Add wet ingredients to dry and whisk until just combined.
  4. Then as with all pancakes, pour 1/4 cup batter onto the pan and cook over medium heat.
  5. When bubbles form flip the pancake over & cook.

I serve mine with fresh raspberries, blackberries & strawberries with a dollop of yoghurt (as shown above). The kids had theirs with golden syrup & hubby had strawberry jam on his.

  1. Wow, yummy. Pancakes are also popular in our house, might give this a burl, but with normal (or lite) milk – pancake junky that Hope is, she won’t eat buttermilk pancakes!

  2. I dont’ want to come across as preachy or anything like that, so please don’t take anything the wrong way!
    I’m diabetic, all the time. Eating ‘right’ isn’t that hard if you think about it, as simply a change of life, rather than a diet. It’s better for you. It’s proven that everyone should be on a diabetic diet, it’s just that only those of us who have too, are!
    There are so many good things out there, rule of thumb, look at the pack, if it’s less than 10% fat and 10% sugar, then it’s ok to eat :)
