These easy 5-ingredient Whole Wheat Pancakes make for a super simple, healthy, guilt free breakfast. Best of all, they're filling and low calorie too!


  • 40g (⅓ cup ) Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
  • ½ tsp Double-Acting Baking Powder
  • 2 packets Natural Sweetener (stevia, Truvia, etc.)
  • pinch of Salt
  • 1 large Egg
  • 1 large Egg White
  • ½ tsp Vanilla Extract

Optional Add-Ins:


  • Spray a nonstick griddle with cooking spray and place over medium heat.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the whole wheat pastry flour, baking powder, sweetener, and salt.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the egg, egg white, and vanilla extract.  Add the dry ingredients and fold together.  Do not overmix, otherwise the pancakes will turn out tough and dry.
  • Scoop ~⅓ cup of the batter onto the griddle.  Cook until bubbles appear on the surface of the pancake and the edges appear dry.  Flip and cook the other side. Do this until all the batter is used up.
  • Serve immediately with pure maple syrup (or Homemade Maple Syrup), a pat of organic butter, natural whipped cream, fresh fruit, 100% fruit spread, natural peanut butter, etc...  whatever you like!
