Healthy Lemon Pancakes

Posted by

Nothing is better than beginning the day with a plate of fragrant Lemony pancakes. Citrus flavors are a huge hit in my family. It’s easy to get the family down for breakfast on the weekend with these easy and light pancakes. 

These are healthy and have a slightly darker hue as I used whole wheat flour. We loved the way they turned out. Soft and fluffy. I paired them with whipped cream and fruits. Sweetened coconut cream will also work out great. Adding dried or fresh blueberries to this pancake batter is another variation we love. 

We avoid eating pancakes in restaurants as I find them too sweet. These are perfectly sweet, and I enjoy them with a cup of black coffee on the side. 

My top tricks to get fluffy pancakes are a hot skillet and not over-mixing the batter.
