Healthy Funfetti Pancakes
These delicious Funfetti Pancakes are secretly healthy and all natural! You’d never know these sweet, buttery and tender pancakes are low sugar, high fiber, high protein and gluten free!
I had to make FOUR batches of these pancakes in order to finally make it to this glorious recipe, but it was SO so worth it.
The first batch was really tender but it had no structure. With a little drizzle of pure maple syrup, the pancakes nearly disintegrated into moist crumbs with every forkful. Absolutely delicious, but way too delicate for when you’re ravenous in the morning.
The second batch was just as tasty as the previous one but it was super gooey in the middle, despite being cooked for what seemed like forever.
The third batch was still a little too moist in the center and I accidentally overcooked (aka burned) half of them. Oops!
Finally, the fourth batch came along. While these pancakes aren’t as thick and puffy as I usually like my pancakes, they have the perfect texture and perfect flavor. The pancakes are soft and tender but don’t fall apart like my first trial did. The pancakes are moist but not overly moist like the second and third trials. The pancakes are sweet and rich and oh so buttery, it’s hard to believe they’re all natural, low sugar, high protein and gluten free! I’m still convinced someone snuck some butter and sugar into the batter when I wasn’t looking…
Unlike the typical Funfetti Pancake recipe out there, this recipe contains no trans fats, no artificial food coloring, no artificial flavorings, no white sugar and no bleached white flour, yet it tastes just as delicious… if not better!
Here is a nutrition label comparison between my healthy pancake recipe with Betty Crocker’s unhealthy recipe:
Wow, Betty Crocker’s recipe contains 2g of deadly trans fats per serving!! Oh, and 25g of sugar.
No thanks, I’d rather have my Healthy Funfetti Pancakes — healthy fats, complex carbs, lots of fiber and a ton of protein. This is the kind of breakfast we can feel good about indulging in 😀
You can always count on a stack of (healthy) pancakes for a super fast and filling, energizing breakfast.
Or dessert… or lunch… or dinner 😉
