Lose weight with these healthy pancakes! Make these healthy pancakes with parsnip to curb your hunger. They're gluten-free and sugar-free making them the perfect pancakes for weight loss.
Hi dear, are you craving for some delicious pancakes that will not leave you feeling guilty? Make these healthy pancakes with parsnip, they will fill you up without overloading you with high carbs.
What about adding more fiber in these healthy pancakes for more health benefits? I chose parsnip because it's high in fiber and it's a weight loss veggie that comes with anti-inflammatory properties and it's high in folic acid.
This healthy pancakes recipe is ideal for a weekend morning breakfast or a brunch when you've ample time to savored delicious pancakes. Besides, you don't want to eat all these goodies alone, you need your family and friends lol.
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.
These delicious pancakes with parsnip are ideal of healthy pancakes,
- they're high in fiber to keep you full for long without snacking,
- they've vitamins and minerals which will improve your health,
- their antioxidants will help your body in reducing inflammation, as well as fighting other diseases
- they are perfect to include in a weight loss program as they've low carbs
I hope you'll enjoy these healthy pancakes and add them to your pancake recipes. You can substitute parsnip with carrots or sweet potatoes.

Make these healthy pancakes with parsnip
- 1 cup buckwheat groats
- 1 cup rolled oats
- ⅔ cup raisins (soak them in a little water for about 20mins if you don't have a high-speed blender )
- 1 cup grated parsnip (cut into small cubes if you have a very high-speed blender)
- 2 cups coconut milk (or milk of your choice)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups cooked frozen blueberries for topping (optional)
- Put raisins in a measuring cup and cover them slightly with water if your blend is not a high-speed
- Grate the parsnip to help your blender if it's not a high-speed
- Add the ingredients starting with the dry ones
- Blend 1st with a cup of milk, then add gradually the rest of the milk
- Blend into a smooth batter, it should be thick but running.
- Let the batter stand for 10 mins
- Cook your pancakes; flip when most bubbles have popped
- Serve warm with slow-cooked frozen blueberries or any fruit of your choice
- How do you like these pancakes? rate them and leave a comment here below, love you.
- 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.

Hi Megan, it's not always easy when cooking gluten-free pancakes. But I've done this recipe several times and each time it was a success. If your batter comes thick add some little milk at a time till you get a thick running batter. Another thing, cooking on a non-stick pan will help. Looking forward to you comment on how they came out. Blessings to you Megan.

Oh these look super yummy! I’ve honestly never had a parsnip so I have zero reference for how they taste but this recipe and your pictures make these look delicious!
Oh Magen, It hasn't been long since I started eating them, so maybe these pancakes will give you a good starting. Parsnips are sweet but as carrot, at least for me. Thank you so much for stopping by. Be blessed Magen.
Interesting, I would have never thought to add them to my pancakes. They don't look half bad! I may have to try this out as a way to spice up my pancakes a bit instead of having regular pancakes often.
Hi Luna, these pancakes are delicious, take my word for it, if you want them sweeter you can always add some sweetener. And yes, they spice up regular pancakes and are super healthy. Thank you so much for being here, blessings to you Luna.

The ingredients in this recipe had me intrigued so I just had to make it. They are so good! And different from other pancakes we have made before. Such a great recipe, will be making this one again!
Candice, Thank you so much for making this recipe. I am happy that you like it.
What a great idea! I think the parsnips would add such a nice sweetness to the pancakes, leaving them that lovely golden colour. I eat my pancakes with maple syrup and do not feel an ounce of guilt about it..parsnip and maple syrup would be lovely together.
I believe too, Bernice. You tell me how they came out.
Wow, very cool recipe! I had no idea pancakes could be made with oats, coconut milk and parsnips?! Definitely something I am going to try soon!
Thank you, Aleta, and I believe you'll enjoy them.
You have me intrigued with parsnip in the batter. I can't wait to give these a try to taste those flavors, thanks for sharing!
Thank you, Denise.
These look so good! I definitely gotta make these soon because I'd never thought of putting parsnip in anything sweet! Such a cool concept!
Thank you, Veronika.
What a wonderful way to make pancakes and perfect for my son that has to eat gluten free!! Parsnips are such a different addition and it really intrigues me. I will be trying these very soon!!
Debbie, I am happy that your son can enjoy gluten-free pancakes especially when they are healthy.
That is so amazing that this recipe uses parsnip! The pancakes look so fluffy and delicious, I can't wait to give this a try and sneak in some vegetables with my breakfast!
Thank you, Anna, I am sure you'll love them

I've stayed away from pancakes figuring they were high in fat and calories and certainly weren't good for me. I tried your recipe and I was thrilled. I got to eat a tasty recipe with ingredients that are good for me. I never would have dreamed of putting parsnips into a pancake. Very clever.
Thank you so much Marisa, I am happy that now you can eat and enjoy healthy pancakes.
I love how this pancake recipe is so healthy and gluten free as well- what a great meal to start the day with!
Hello and Happy Holidays!
I was a little nervous trying these healthy pancakes with parsnips, but I am glad I did!!! They were so delish, and even the kids who never eat parsnips loved them!! That's a winning situation right there when they eat something they usually don't! A great recipe that I will be saving!
Heidy, I am so so happy that your kids liked these pancakes. It's always doubting to introduce something new in kids' life and I am grateful you did. Thank you so much.
This is such an awesome recipe thank you so much for sharing!
Thank you, Lama.
I'm the only one that likes parsnips in this family. I wonder if anyone would notice if I snuck them into pancakes?
Hi Bernice, you can add parsnip to your pancakes, start with a little amount at first. My kids love these pancakes and don't mention parsnip taste especially my boy who can stand it.
I would have never, ever thought to put parsnips in any breakfast, but I am looking to up the nutrition in my breakfasts so I'm pretty excited about these. Buckwheat and oats would be the perfect foundation for this pancake. I so look forward to trying this pancake recipe!
Hi Beth, I am glad you found this recipe. Now you can use parsnip in your pancakes. And yes, you need flours that hold well, oats and buckwheat are perfect for a gluten-free choice. Be blessed.
