Clean Eating Buttermilk Pancakes provide a healthy source of carbohydrates and great fuel to start your day!
I subscribe to Clean Eating magazine to get more healthy meal ideas. It is full of great recipes that don’t use highly processed carbs and refined sugars. I got this Clean Eating Buttermilk Pancake recipe from their website and adapted it, making a few substitutions to suit my taste buds and it turned out great.
I also added a little water to the original recipe. It seemed a bit too thick. I love the taste of these pancakes and they provide you with a healthier, wholesome carbohydrate source. Serve them with a small drizzle of real maple syrup and top with fresh berries for added nutrition.
I’m crazy about the Wyman’s wild frozen blueberries for topping pancakes. I used them to make my favorite Blueberry Compote, a simple and easy recipe without refined sugar that takes pancakes to a whole new level. You definitely have to try it on your favorite pancakes and waffles!
