Healthy Buttermilk Pancakes

Ahhhh, I forgot to post a cupcake recipe yesterday!!! You all will be seeing two cupcake recipes posted today… along with this delicious healthy buttermilk pancake recipe! For as many cupcakes as I have been making and “testing” aka eating… I needed some health in my life. I searched in Pinterest for healthy pancake recipes, I love putting healthy twists on classic favorites. So, this recipe was derived by me comparing other healthy pancake recipes along with adding in certain ingredients I wanted to. The result….. UM YUM. I just had some before writing this post, and they were so so so delicious.

I added in Peppermint chips and Dark Chocolate chips. The dark chocolate I added in were 53% cacao. Which, I originally had no clue what that meant until I read about it here. I think the next time I bake/cook with dark chocolate I am going to go for a higher percentage of dark chocolate. Which hopefully will be soon, because I really want to make a healthy chocolate bark!!

Ok, back to these pancakes. I know when some people think of  healthier versions of food- they think “that’s going to be disgusting, if I’m eating pancakes (or insert junk food here), I’m going all out and eating a damn pancake”…. I kid you not, these pancakes will not leave you thinking that. I used Greek Yogurt in place of the buttermilk. This gives the pancake a great, thick and rich texture and flavor.

I did use 1 c. of flour, which split between 9 medium sized pancakes (how many the batter made) doesn’t seem too terrible. I did also use 1/2 c. ground organic flaxseed, because I didn’t want to use only flour. I love using ground flaxseed whenever I can. It is so good for you, and you cannot taste it in anything. Why not sneak it in whatever you can if that’s the case?!

These are best eaten more or less right after they have been made! I wouldn’t suggest making these for “make-ahead” breakfasts.

Ok, well now that I’m done blabbering- here is the printable recipe for these delicious healthy pancakes! You can add in whatever you like in your pancakes, such as blueberries (double points for being super healthy!!!!) or just eat them plain.

  • ok... you guys... kombucha margaritas!!! I combined two of my favorite things (kombucha + tequila, duh) for #nationalmargaritaday and the result was this guava jalapeño margarita and possibly one of the best margs I’ve ever made.
