Five delicious ways to make healthy pancakes (video)

Print this recipe
In every corner of the world, you'll find some sort of variation of a pancake, either sweet or savory. In the recipe below, we give five pancake variations that are super easy and healthy. It's hard to pick just one as a favorite, and they're all so simple to make. I usually make a variety when I have people over for brunch, and the pancakes never disappoint!
Oats and almonds make such a great combination in the first recipe with our blend of oats, Greek yogurt, and almond extract. Chocolate and banana is a classic favorite, and we've got you covered. For all the peanut butter lovers, you won't be disappointed with our delicious peanut butter pancakes. The fourth recipe is filled with antioxidants from blueberries and coconut oil. Coconut-banana pancakes give that tropical taste and are loaded with potassium. I like to serve any of these pancakes with pure maple syrup or raw honey.
