Healthy Pancakes Recipe | How to Make Pancakes from Scratch

    These healthy pancakes are a great option when you’re looking to make pancakes from scratch. You only need a handful of ingredients and the recipe comes together very quickly.

    To make these pancakes healthier than other pancakes, you’ll use whole wheat pastry flour instead of regular all-purpose flour. You’ll also use honey rather than table sugar to sweeten up your pancakes.

    A little vegetable oil and almond milk tenderize the batter and give these pancakes their moist, cake-like texture.

    To spruce up these healthy pancakes, feel free to use a flavored extract like almond extract or add a little lemon zest into the batter.

    We love stirring in dark chocolate chips sometimes or pouring fresh blueberry sauce over the finished pancakes.


    Cook time: 10 minutes
    Prep time: 5 minutes
    Idle time:


    1. Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl.
    2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the honey, almond milk, oil, and egg.
    3. Add flour mixture to egg mixture and stir just to moisten—a few lumps are fine.
    4. Cook pancakes on a griddle for a couple of minutes on each side over medium heat. Serve immediately.
