Are pancakes healthy to eat for breakfast?
Traditional pancakes recipes call for refined flour which has little fiber. Because they are high in refined carbs and low in fiber, they are not considered very healthy. However, our version of them is totally on the healthy side.
First, we use rolled oats that are high in fiber and are healthier and more nutritious than processed flour. Also, we use almond milk instead of regular milk which is also lower in calories. Similarly, we added sugar-free syrup with some protein powder that gives you energy. All these ingredients make this recipe a healthy and delicious meal.
How to make Keto Pancakes?
Keto Pancakes are also a very healthy and great alternative to the traditional version. They are gluten-free, low carb, and sugar-free. If you want to reduce your carbs the right way, then eating them on a keto diet is the right bet.
The main difference is that they are made with coconut flour instead of wheat flour or oats. Check out an easy low-carb keto version of this dish here.
CAN YOU MAKE THEM IN ADVANCE?
- They are perfect to make in advance. Simply, prepare the batter and store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 24 hours.
- Before cooking, let the batter sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes and stir well before cooking.
- Also, you can cook the pancakes, then cool them and either refrigerate or freeze for later.
What are good toppings for healthy pancakes?
There are many great toppings that go well on them. Some of our favorites are listed below:
- Dark Chocolate and Bananas
- Pure maple syrup
- Natural honey
- Cacao Nibs and Greek yogurt
HOW TO FREEZE THE PANCAKES?
Before freezing, make sure they are completely cooled. Then, wrap tightly in aluminum foil and place in freezer bags. Freeze for up to 3 months.
To serve, thaw them in the fridge or toast. If you have kids, you could also cook a huge batch of them and freeze in individual portion size. When the time comes, simply remove each back and thaw overnight in the fridge. This way they have a perfectly healthy and delicious snack or meal.

Prep time: 5 minutes Cook time: 15 minutes Total time: 20 mins
- 3 Eggs (lightly beaten)
- 1/2 cup Almond milk (or any other dairy-free unsweetened milk)
- 1 medium Banana
- 4 tablespoons Sugar-free syrup (like Monk fruit syrup)
- 1 1/2 cups Rolled oats (use GF if preferred)
- 1/4 cup Almond flour
- 1/4 cup Protein powder (of choice)
- 2 teaspoons Baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract

- Add all the ingredients to a blender, except the eggs. Process until smooth. Taste and adjust for sweetness.
- Pour mixture into a bowl, and whisk in the beaten eggs.
- Let the batter stand for about 10-20 minutes for the oats to soak in more liquid.
- Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Once warmed, spray with non-stick cooking spray or add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and melt it.
- Using an ice cream scoop, pour pancake batter into the hot skillet. Cook about 2 pancakes per batch as the batter is a bit runny and will expand ones added to the skillet.
- Cook for 2-3 minutes on one side. Turn over and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
- Stack on a plate and drizzle with syrup and toppings of choice.
