Why settle for store-bought pancake mixes when you can so easily make your own, more wholesome pancakes? These whole-wheat pancakes are light and delicious. Add some chopped berries if you like, and serve with warmed fruit compote or maple syrup. Just steer clear of butter!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp honey


Whisk whole-wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. In a small bowl, combine egg, buttermilk and honey. Make a well in dry ingredients and stir in egg and buttermilk mixture.

Allow batter to rest for a few minutes.

Taste Great.., Member KanikaSahajwani

This is the first time I made any pancakes from scratch. I was looking for a good whole wheat recipe and this one really attracted me. When I made these pancakes for the first time, I just loved them to the core. I had them with some more honey on top. Today I made them the second time, and definitely wanted to write a review on it. I will try adding Bananas and Cinnamon next time....
