Recipe – Banana pancakes

Alberta Health Services recommends choosing foods with at least 2 grams of fibre per serving. This recipe makes it easy to do that because it uses higher fibre ingredients such as whole grain flour and fruit. Thanks to our partners at Alberta Health Services for providing this delicious recipe.

Ingredients for 24-4 inch pancakes

  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 medium eggs

  3. Add wet ingredients and banana to the flour mixture and stir
  4. Add extra 3–4 tablespoons (45–60 mL) of milk if batter is too thick
