Seven healthy pancake recipes for pancake Tuesday

May be you can tell from the number of pancake recipes on this website that I love pancakes, and healthy pancake recipes in particular. In fact, I made a double batch of our family favourite recipe (Old Black Witch’s Blueberry Pancakes) on the weekend for my daughter and her friends. The leftovers went into the fridge and we ate them for breakfast again today.

Although we have pancakes often enough for breakfast, they’re still a treat if we eat them for supper. That’s why we all delight in Pancake Tuesday. Shrove Tuesday is one of the few days of the year that we have pancakes at suppertime and I suppose that’s why we always look forward to it.

Make your pancakes healthier

Plain pancakes with regular white flour don’t offer the body a whole lot of sustenance but the options for adding nutrition (and extra flavour) to your pancakes are limitless. As my kids can attest, I’m known for stuffing my pancakes with everything from chia, flax meal and wheat germ to barley flour, vegetables, yogurt and more.

Whatever the season and whatever you’re craving, there is a healthy pancake recipe to suit everyone.

    Hi Bridget Oland:

    I’m Jean, and I already get your Crosby’s recipe by e-mail. Being born and raised on molasses in a family of 11, and Catholic you know we have pancakes every Shrove Tuesday! I make a lot of pancakes for Friday suppers, due to both me and my hubby working late that day. So I make a lot of blueberry cinnamon, my favorite, and banana cinnamon…. And crushed pineapple, ( drained) And whole wheat ones too! But always by a box mix. If you have a recipe that would be homemade I would be thrilled to make them for sure and make extra to freeze. If you have ones with white flour or whole wheat that would be awesome. I love your recipes, (tip) and I take 1 tsp. of Crosby’s molasses every morning to keep up my iron intake. Doctor says that’s great and tell his other patience to do the same now… I’ve never have low blood for over 5 years now. So it must do the trick! ;) Thanks honey! Keep up the good work!

      Dear Jean, I love that you have pancakes for Friday suppers. That’s such a great idea. I like to mix and match with my pancakes too, adding different kinds of fruit and flours. I hope that you found a new favourite recipe among the seven that we shared in this blog post.

      Hi again, Shredded apple is a great idea for pancakes. It sure keeps them moist.
