One of the things that I have missed most by not eating white flour is pancakes. I didn't eat them very often, but every once in awhile, I would crave pancakes. I have tried unsuccessfully several times in the past year to make healthy pancakes that were good enough that you didn't miss the white flour. Until a couple of weeks ago when I came up with this recipe. These pancakes were delicious! My husband even liked them.

As you know, typical pancakes are a nightmare for diabetics or anyone with any type of inflammatory disease. All that white flour combined with the high fructose corn syrup, which is all most pancake syrups are, instantly makes your blood sugar skyrocket and creates inflammation in your body.

But, these pancakes will not raise your blood sugar and do not create inflammation in the body. Plus, since they are whole grain they also have fiber. Eaten with honey or Agave syrup is yummy sweetness without spiking your blood sugar.

FYI - Agave is a natural sweetener with a low glycemic index, so it is safe for diabetics or anyone trying to limit their sugar intake. I love the "Ohgave Amaretto Maple Flavor Agave Syrup".

So, for Father's Day, if you have a special Dad in your life that loves pancakes, but has to watch his blood sugar or just wants to eat healthier, make these for him. All of the sweetness, but none of the sickness, pain or guilt.

 I'm working on another Father's Day recipe, but haven't got it perfected yet. My husband loves eggs, omelets & quiche. So he still has to eat a few more samples before I'm ready to share the final product. I will hopefully have that for you in a few days.

Thank you for reading. I appreciate the ones that have shared their ideas & recipes with me.
I love sharing recipes and healthy information with people. We are all in this together until God calls us home.

Blessings to all,


1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
¾ cup oat flour
2 tbsp sucanat or brown sugar or honey
2 tsps baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
1 egg, beaten
1 ½ cups buttermilk
3 tbsps oil (I used coconut oil)

1)               In a large bowl, stir together flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
2)               In another bowl, combine egg, milk & oil. 
3)               Add egg mixture to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened. Batter should be     slightly lumpy.
4)               Scoop onto hot griddle coated with cooking spray.
5)               Pancakes are ready to flip over when the top side has little bubbles on it.
6)               Spread butter on hot pancakes and serve with pure maple syrup, honey or Agave syrup.

A question, is Maple syrup on par with the Agave? Being Canadian, I know I can get Maple syrup readily, the Agave I'm not so sur about. I'd like to make these for my diabetic father and if the Maple will spike his sugar then I've got to get me some of this Agave. Pancakes used to be his number one go to town favourite food.

I am posting a link with info on the glycemic index. PURE maple syrup is lower than the HFCS stuff, but Agave is diabetic friendly. I hope your father likes these pancakes. That made me tear up reading your comment. The whole reason I am posting these recipes is to try to help others to be able to eat good tasting healthy food. Please let me know if he liked them. God bless you & your father.

Hi Lori, in preparation for tomorrow I did a search on Agave syrup just to make certain that I'm doing the right thing here. Turns out, Agave is just as bad as sugar for diabetics. Agave is currently enjoying a trend of popularity touted as a healthy alternative to sugar when in fact it is anything but. Rats.

Raedwulf, I'm not sure where you got your information. But, I have researched for almost a year on healthy NATURAL sugar alternatives. Sugar has a glycemic index of 69, Agave's glycemic index is 15. The higher the glycemic, the more it spikes your blood sugar. White flour's glycemic index is 71!! Yet, many diabetics continue to eat white flour & continue to feel bad, but don't know why. In myself, when I eat white flour my blood sugar instantly soars & within an hour my joints are swollen & stiff. I do not have any type of reaction at all to Agave or Honey. I just know what I have researched on for so long & what has been working for me. :)
