When I make pancakes, it’s usually from a mix because usually a couple times of year there will be a deal where between the sale price and coupons the mixes are free or just pennies a box. Unfortunately, there isn’t much as far as nutrition or fiber in the mixes!
So, my solution to make healthier pancakes from a mix is to add a bit of my own fiber. What you can do is simply add 1-2 Tbsp of oat or wheat bran (I use a combo of both) to the smallest sized batch of pancakes – add more for larger batches. If you want to make sure your pancakes are still fluffy, also add 1 scant teaspoon of wheat gluten for every tablespoon of bran. You can buy all of these things in the bulk section of your food co-op or health food store (or get online) and they are very inexpensive.
If you want them to be evey healthier, throw in some blueberries. (Defrosted frozen berries are fine.) YUM!!!
