Pancakes – 15 healthy, fun and family friendly recipes

I love pancake day! A day where you eat breakfast for dinner. It is definitely something the whole family can enjoy. Pikelets, crepes, fritters, oat cakes…here I have the 15 BEST healthy pancake recipes so that you can try something new any time of year!


First, the simplest of pancake recipes…two ingredients…egg and mashed banana. Drop into a pan with a spoon, cook for a few minutes each side and Voila!! These are Paleo friendly and dairy-free. Perfect for babies too! I love adding blueberries to the mix, but that’s optional!


This recipe from My Fussy Eater uses my favourite apples. How about some AMAZING Pink Lady pancakes? Yum.


Who doesn’t love carrot cake? These carrot cake oaty pancakes from My Kids Lick the Bowl are sweetened only by fruit making them a super healthy snack.


Kat’s Delicous Kitchen has a yummy vegan recipe for red velvet crepes. Perfect for a splash of colour.


Looking for some sneaky veggies? How about sweet potato pancakes from Kiddielicious Kitchen?


Or peas?Β 


I love buttermilk pancakes. These ones from Kidgredients sound beyond delicious. Orange buttermilk pikelets? OMG!


Feeling creative? How about some bunny pancakes?


Super Healthy Kids have this really clever pancake pocket idea that blew me away!! So clever.


Or how about pancake pops? So cute for feeding a crowd!


Healthy Little Foodies have a fabulous recipe for green smoothie pancakes. Pretty easy being green with these!!



How about a crepe recipe from a real life French Mama? These look amazing – tres bien Croque-Maman.


These superfood pancakes from Wiley Valentine are supposed to have super powers! Amazing right?


Peanut butter and jam is such a classic combo – why not try Tiny Tummy Tales recipe for it in a pancake? Yummy.


Finally for the chocolate lovers reading…how about some chocolate-beetroot pancakes from Sneaky Veg? These sound sooo good.


What do you love on your pancakes? Are you going to try something different this year? I’m certainly struggling which of these amazing ideas to choose. Maybe pancake day could last a whole week this year?
