Healthy breakfast pancakes

My friend Chana gave me the basic recipe, but I doctored it up and made it healthy. It's really easy, low in fat, high in fiber, and tastes amazing. The recipe doubles great and you can exchange the chocolate chips and nuts for frozen berries or fresh fruit!

  • Duration
  • Cook Time
  • Prep Time
  • 6-10Servings


  • ¾ cup whole wheat flour
  • ¼ cup plain oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk (or soy milk for parve)
  • 2 tbsp ground flax seed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Chocolate chips
  • Walnuts or pecans


1 Heat a large frying pan on the stove top - medium/low heat (I use a non-stick pan with nothing on it, but you can use Pam).
2 Mix flour, oats, baking powder, sugar, egg, salt, milk, flax seed, vanilla and nuts in a mixing bowl.
3 Pour the batter into the heated pan (pancake sized circles). Note that the batter will be thicker than regular pancakes due to the whole wheat flour and flax seed, so you may want to spread the batter to thin it out a bit.
4 Add in extras that can melt (i.e. chocolate chips, blueberries, etc.) on top of the pancakes and push them down until covered with batter.
5 Allow pancakes to cook until a light tan color on the bottom and flip over.
6 The recipe should make about 5-6 big pancakes, or 10 small ones.
7 Once the pancakes are done cooking, cover with maple syrup or dip in yogurt and enjoy!
