what do I need to make these healthy pancakes?
Nothing fancy, just a few ingredients brought together to create these easy yet super delicious healthy pancakes!
- rolled oats
- coconut milk
- salt & baking powder
As for the topping, you can go with fruits of your choice, but since raisins and parsnip are sweeter, I suggest you go for low glycemic fruits so that we don't rise that sugar beyond necessary, don't you agree?
And what a better choice of fruits than berries? Blueberries are loaded with antioxidants making them perfect choice in reducing inflammation as well as many other health benefits.
To retain vitamin C in frozen blueberries, I opt for long slow cooking, just enough to warm them, not more.
Are pancakes healthy?
There are healthy pancakes as well as unhealthy pancakes! It all depends on what they're composed of.
Healthy pancakes are made with whole ingredients and use less sugar and contain no hydrogenated or saturated fat. Ideally using very little to no processed ingredients.
The classic white flour pancakes are generally high in carbs and sugar. Since the white flour is completely processed, it has almost no health benefits and it's high in carbohydrates.
What you top your pancakes with also matters. Artificial pancake syrups are unhealthy, adding them to already not-so-healthy-pancakes will end up creating a cocktail of unhealthy pancake breakfast that's pro-inflammatory and not good at all for your health.

- Choose young parsnip as the mature ones are very fibrous
- Grate the parsnip if you don't have a high-speed blender, otherwise, just cut it into pieces
- If you've a good high-speed blender you can blend all the ingredients without soaking the raisins.
- Take any milk of your choice, for an anti-inflammatory diet, you need to avoid dairy.
- Note that different types of milk will yield pancakes with different textures; eg soy milk will not give as soft pancakes the way coconut milk will.
- Happy cooking, I love you.
