Pancakes for Breakfast!


One of my 2012 resolutions is to keep up a healthy lifestyle. Other than hitting the gym more often than I currently do (or don’t), to ‘live healthy’ also entails eating healthy. The challenge here is to keep on creating yummy, yet healthy recipes. Here’s mine for pancakes, which I learnt from my former yoga instructor:

Combine one handful of whole grain flour with 2 egg whites, a sprinkle of vanilla (could be replaced orange, maple, blueberries, almond..), 1-2 tbsp water, and a dash of cinnamon. Mix well and then place in a heated pan. Flip after a couple of minutes to create something that looks like a pancake. I topped mine with 2 tbsp of fat-free cottage spread cheese (that’s what I had in my fridge) & 3 tbsp of homemade strawberry jam (also cause that’s what was available in the fridge!), and two table spoons of warm maple syrup.

This breakfast has the ideal balance of proteins and carbs necessary to keep me going for the day, & it happens to be wonderfully tasty, all under 250 calories!!


  1. Your pancake looks divine!

  2. WOW.. these pancakes look absolutely delicious. I could wake up every morning and have these… This is such a great post

  3. I’ve been looking for a whole wheat version of pancakes, all the recipes I found were so complicated! I will be trying this this weekend!

  5. That looks easy AND tasty. Something I could do quickly and scarf down on the way out the door. I’ll give it a try soon. :-)
