When looking for a healthy breakfast, there are an abundance of options on the market.
Two of the most common breakfast items are pancakes and waffles. Depending on how each of these items are prepared, they can both deliver health benefits.
Regarding each of these items, moderation and portion size is essential to ensure a healthy breakfast.
Pancakes are made from a batter and cooked on a skillet or griddle. Pancakes typically are thin and flat. Pancakes need to be flipped to ensure both sides are cooked properly.
What Are Pancakes’ Health Benefits? The batter of pancakes contains milk, which provides protein and calcium. Eggs provide additional protein. If pancakes are made with whole wheat or buckwheat flour, their health benefits will increase.
When using these whole grains, pancakes present numerous health benefits, including rich in fiber, vitamins, antioxidants and minerals.
Due to the additional fiber, whole wheat pancakes will help you feel fuller longer than white flour pancakes.
Make pancakes even healthier and more satisfying by adding flaxseed, which increases the overall fiber content of the pancake. Your average 6 inch pancake has approximately 175 calories.Open
