Healthy Pancake Recipe

A quick an easy breakfast option.

A quick an easy breakfast option.

When my sisters and I were younger, our Dad was on a low carb diet. This meant we ate the same way he did: no bread, grains, pasta, and sadly no pancakes. My mom started looking for recipes that were low carb and delicious. She found a recipe for pancakes that were much healthier than regular pancakes. My whole family tried the new recipe and loved it! We started calling them healthy pancakes. This is a very simple and quick recipe if you are a beginner in the kitchen, or you just want an easy, healthy, and delicious breakfast.
