Power-packed Pancakes for the Weekend

Kick start your day, or just curl up with a stack!


We all love fluffy pancakes on our breakfast tables, drizzled with honey or chocolate sauce or Nutella, sprinkled with berries or a scoop of ice-cream or fresh fruits. The list is endless! They’re the perfect food to kick off the weekend. Here’s how you can make them healthier: sub the refined flour (maida) with whole wheat or millet flour and sugar with jaggery. For a vegan version, add refined oil in place of butter, and bananas for eggs. Here’s how:

Whole wheat pancakes
Dry ingredients:

2 cups of whole wheat flour
1 Tbsp Ragi flour
2-3 ripe bananas
½ tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of cinnamon powder
1 Tbsp jaggery powder if you like them sweet

Wet ingredients:
2 cup of milk
1 tsp of vanilla extract
2 tbsp of oil

For garnish:

•Mix all the dry ingredient in a bowl and mix all the wet ingredient in another.
•Whisk slowly as you mix the dry into the wet ingredients.
•The batter should be pasty.
•Heat a pan on a low flame. Drizzle some oil on it.
•Pour the batter on the pan, let it rest into a shape. Do not spread it with the spoon like a dosa, if you want them to be thick and fluffy.
•Cover the pan with a glass lid, so that you can observe the progress.
•Flip it and let the other side cook until its lightly brown.
•Place it on the serving plate and pour honey over the top.
