Buttermilk Pancakes Made with Spelt Flour

Do you like pancakes? I absolutely loooove pancakes. Do you know what I don’t like, though? I don’t like that pancakes can be very high glycemic, especially if they are made with regular white flour. And if they are soaked in fake maple syrup, oh my goodness, don’t even get me started!

That’s why I am always on the lookout for pancake recipes that are a bit healthier.

I say a bit healthier because even though these pancakes are made with whole spelt flour, I still wouldn’t eat them every day. But hey, we all want something familiar and comforting every once in a while, right? So no, I am not going to deprive myself.

I love my pancakes with some maple syrup (and I mean the real stuff) or honey.

My trick to using less of any sweetener: serve the pancakes with fresh berries. Fresh berries are always so flavorful, you won’t notice that you are using less syrup.

I also love to pair the spelt buttermilk pancakes with this 2-Ingredient Raspberry Sauce or this Healthy Blueberry Sauce.

To make the meal even more balanced, I always serve my pancakes with some nut butter.

Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 free-range eggs, beaten
