Healthy Spelt Pancakes For One

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on January 2, 2010

Do you like pancakes?

I sure do.

IMG_8847 

I am a pancake lover, but I typically don’t make them for the following reasons:

  • I am not a fan of how many pancakes most recipes make when I just want a single serving
  • Whenever I make pancakes on weekends, it always turns into a big production. Mess, drips, pans, spills, small kitchen fires…you get the idea.

IMG_8835

But I am no quitter, my friends.

I decided to create a ‘Pancake for 1’ recipe and prepare the dry ingredients the night before. I also had a few requirements:

  • It had to use whole grain flour
  • High in protein and fibre
  • Be quick enough to make on a weekday morning

Preparing it the night before actually worked out quite well and it only took me about 10 minutes to make this morning. This will work wonderfully for weekday mornings.

Mission Accomplished!

Healthy Spelt Pancakes for One

IMG_8871

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup spelt flour
  • 1/2 t cinnamon
  • tiny pinch sea salt
  • 1 t baking powder (I use aluminum-free)
  • 1/8 t maca powder (optional)
  • 1/2 T Manitoba Harvest Hemp Protein Powder (optional)
  • 1/2 c unsweetened almond milk (or milk of your choice)

Syrup + topping ideas (see below)

Directions: Mix all dry ingredients together the night before and place in container. In the morning, heat a skillet on medium while mixing the batter. Add the milk to dry ingredients and stir well. Spray the skillet with non stick oil and spoon the batter onto the skillet on med-low temperature. Flip pancakes when bubbles pop and cook other side.

Makes 5 baby pancakes. Awww how cute.

I made the low sugar coconut oil syrup (see below). This is my go-to pancake syrup. So amazing. It doesn’t give you that sick feeling like maple syrup often does.

 IMG_8905

These pancakes pack quite the nutritional punch.

215 calories for the entire batch (without maca, hemp, syrup or toppings), 8 grams of protein, 11 grams of fibre, 21% of the day’s iron requirements and 11% of calcium requirements!

Sprinkle some chia seeds on top and you will add some healthy omega oils, antioxidants, iron, and calcium. :)

HEALTHY SYRUP IDEAS:

Low sugar syrup:

For the syrup, I like to mix coconut oil and maple syrup for a really delicious low sugar syrup. I mix 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and 1/2 a tablespoon of pure maple syrup together and the result is pure heaven.

Low calorie syrup:

Sometimes I also mix 5 parts applesauce and 1 part agave nectar for a very low calorie yet delicious ‘syrup’.

IMG_8883 Topping Ideas:

  • Chia seeds
  • Goji berries
  • Unsweetened coconut
  • Dark chocolate
  • Cacao nibs
  • Almond or peanut butter
  • Crushed walnuts

 

It was a delicious, filling, and quick breakfast!

What is your ideal breakfast if you could have anything in the world?

What does your weekend breakfast routine look like compared to your weekday breakfast routine?

Off to workout + Whittle! Then work for a few hours today followed by a couple returns at the mall.

It’s such a coincidence that you made spelt pancakes this morning! I was thinking that I needed to try them as I have some spelt left over that I need to use up! Then, I saw your post…I don’t need to look for a recipe now! I’m so pumped to try them! Thanks!

Thanks for the recipe. I’ll definitely put it to use, but, alas, during the work week I still won’t have time to make them, because I give myself like 10 minutes to eat, haha. Sleep > food.

I like to have pancakes occasionally- but I’m hooked on oatmeal :) Maybe I should look into oatmeal pancakes?
Oh, and I made my little brother (10 yrs. old) a green monster the other day and he LOVED it. I was so surprised…he watched me put straight up spinach in his drink and then without bias tried it & said “yum!”

Love the recipe, and I’m excited about your interview airing!

Typically I make a Green Monster in the blender the night before. In the a.m., I take it out of the fridge, reblend for about 30 seconds, and drink on the ride to the gym.

I’m all about efficiency in the mornings!

I never make anything special for breakfast during the week because I get to the office a little after 6AM and eat while I work…usually it’s Greek yogurt or a raw food bar. But I had pancakes this morning for breakfast! I usually make them from scratch, but I used a mix that was pumpkin flavored today. Yummy! I bought the ingredients for a green monster this week, so maybe tomorrow I’ll be brave enough to try one for breakfast…!

Melly January 2, 2010 at 12:00 pm

You are like a walking advertisement for spelt. Love it! Spelt is my favorite flour so I will definitely be trying out these pancakes. I’m curious to hear how long they kept you full!

Reply

Jessica @ How Sweet It Is January 2, 2010 at 12:09 pm

Reply

Natasha January 2, 2010 at 12:19 pm

mmmm pancakes! I love pancakes, but I never feel very good after them. I’ll have to try out this recipe… but maybe not with spelt. My breakfast tends to remain pretty much constant. I go through phases so it’s the same thing everyday for ages then I swap. Currently, it’s my own homemade honey toasted muesli with greek yogurt and honey mixed in. Actually I’d love to know how to veganise this as I’m going to try out veganism for a month maybe in Feb.

Reply

stina6584 January 2, 2010 at 12:22 pm

That pancake recipe looks great. Pancakes are always reserved for the weekend. I generally make batches of whole wheat waffles on the weekend that I can reheat in the toaster during the week if I feel like a waffle. My weekday breakfast routine has been oatmeal now that it’s cold out. In the warmer months I lean toward Greek yogurt with fixins. Sometimes I’ll make eggs if I’m not running behind (which I usually am in the morning despite all efforts to give myself plenty of time!).

Hello Darling- already putting this in the go-to recipe for the single girl recipe box :) However, as I was copying it, I realized that the recipe says
“•1/2 unsweetened almond milk (or milk of your choice) ”

im assuming that it’s 1/2 CUP, right?

Those pancakes look yummy. I can’t wat to try them and the coconut syrup. Thanks for the recipes.

Things have sure changed for the bone marrow registry. I signed up about 10 years ago and they had to take a vial of my blood. Unfortunately in all these years I’ve never been a match for anyone. I get a card from them every year thanking me for being on the registry, but I never match anyone. Seems kind of odd to me. I must have some sort of weird, unique DNA.

Hopefully you’re more in demand for the bone marrow. I think it would be awesome to help save someone’s life. :)

ps: hopes the interview airs!

Susan January 2, 2010 at 1:57 pm

Yay!! I LOVE pancakes. I always make the same oatmeal/cottage cheese pancakes, so I’ll have to try these as a way to switch it up. I always get up early before work to ensure I have at least 15 minutes to prepare breakfast and lots of time to enjoy it. I can usually do oatmeal, waffles, pancakes or eggs in that period of time, so no breakfast is off limits for me. Totally worth getting up earlier for ;)

Reply

Eliana >^..^ January 2, 2010 at 2:03 pm

I love pancakes!! ;O) Here is a recipe that I have for my fav pancakes:

2/3 cup Buckwheat Pancake Mix
1 egg (I don’t use egg, I do the chia substitute)
2 tsp Coconut Oil
2 tsp Agave Nectar
3/4 cup almond milk

Delicious!!! Yummmy! I sprinkle on top cup up almonds, blueberries and its so good. I’m getting hungry thinking about them.

Enjoy them!!

Zaidan January 2, 2010 at 2:06 pm

My favourite breakfast is toast with peanut butter and banana slices, but on the weekends I love pancakes! Actually, this morning I made my very first green monster.. it was amazing! I will definitely be adding it to my morning routine. My husband even had one, and my 19 month old daughter liked it too! Yum :)

Reply

Mallory January 2, 2010 at 3:00 pm

ohhhh yum!
too bad i already ate breakfast :)

for the coconut oil – i was so excited when i saw it in my local grocery store and snatched up a jar right away! i’ve been using it as a body moisturizer and it’s great – however, i realized that it’s refined and i remember you saying that the unrefined is better for you. can i still use the refined coconut oil in cooking? what’s the difference (health-wise) between the two oils?

and i’m hoping everything goes well with the bone marrow matching! good luck ange :)

Have a question about running. when I run I tend to stomp, and I was wondering how you prevent that? I’ve been trying so hard to stop but I always end up back at stomping. Its driving me crazy when I run now because that’s all I focus on.

Your coconut syrup brought me back to Hawaii. They had THE BEST coconut syrup there, but I’m SURE that yours is much healthier for you.

Ellen January 2, 2010 at 5:01 pm

I never make pancakes for the same reasons. Now I will have a new breakfast to look forward to in the morning.

My weekend breakfasts are more relaxed than my workday breakfast. On the weekends I usually prepare oatmeal with fresh or dried fruit, soymilk, and bit of this or that. Another fave thing to do is to go out for a healthy brunch or for breakfast tacos at Whole Foods (always eggs, vegan chorizo, and cilantro on a spelt tortilla).

I almost always make my workday breakfast at work and eat at my desk, so I don’t really get to concentrate on the food as much….I usually make toast with PB or bring some cereal and soymilk….But one of my New Year’s Resolutions is to work towards a 9 pm – 5 am sleeping schedule (inspired by Kath Eats), so I can enjoy my mornings and sit down to a good breakfast!

Thanks again for the pancake recipe! Can’t wait to make it.

Trail January 2, 2010 at 5:09 pm

Ange, I love that you made a pancakes for 1 recipe! Plus since I’m just getting into vegetarian/vegan eating, any recipe that takes care of the question of adapting (sub egg, milk, oils, etc) regular recipes are wonderful to me!

Good luck with being a donor match, too!

I always make a big batch of pancakes and freeze the leftovers. If you make small ones you can just pop them in the toaster straight out of the freezer!

Best idea ever!!!!!!!!!! Thank you!

I have to second this idea…we do this all the time. Big batches from scratch on the weekends which I freeze and then put in the toaster oven.

Quick and easy to get the kids off to school in the morning with a good breakfast.

Also, instead of syrup many times I spread some PB&J for the kids (haha…that way it is portable too when we are running late)

Your coconut syrup looks soooo good!

Leah January 2, 2010 at 6:40 pm

Its funny how different I eat on the weekends when it comes to breakfast. During the week its always oatmeal, but on the weekend I have more time so I’ll put in some actual effort. Im a big fan of homemade hashbrowns with poached eggs on top.

I think it’s AWESOME that you’re adding yourself to the Bone Marrow Registry. Good for you!

My ideal breakfast, while not super healthy, is my mom’s breakfast potatoes. I LOVE them and no matter what I do I can’t ever recreate them at home.

During the week I try to make enough time for oatmeal or cereal but sometimes it’s a Clif bar as I’m running out the door. On the weekends we usually have eggs or pancakes. Yum!

As a side note – I got my order of Glo Bars the other day and they are simply amazing! My husband tried one and really likes them too – although I glare at him when he eats one because I don’t want them to run out :) THANK YOU for making such a delish product!

Jenny January 3, 2010 at 12:24 am

Wow great idea with those single serving pancakes, so helpful! Could you use whole wheat flower if you don’t have spelt??

On the weekends I definitely take more time with breakfasts, but since my favorite things (oatmeal, pb, bananas) don’t take too long, I’m usually able to have them throughout the week :)

I tend to eat to same things throughout the week, but Sat/Sun mornings usually allow me to be more leasurely about my eating. I drink my green monster while I blow-dry my hair, and then grab something else to eat at my desk once I get there.

I recently purchased Justin’s Maple Almond butter, and it is my “treat” on fresh bread on weekend mornings.

Hey Angela,

I wanted to let you know that your “low sugar maple syrup” inspired me to create something similar but also lower in fat. Instead of using coconut oil, I used 1.5 tablespoons light coconut milk and 1 tablespoon grade b maple syrup. It created a yummy, creamy syrup with the taste of both maple and coconut. Thanks for the inspiration!

Making a recipe of pancakes for one is a great idea! I made these this morning and they were perfect (they were so good that I wonder why anyone would put eggs in pancakes :P).

Thanks for the recipe!

I’ve had this recipe bookmarked for awhile and finally got around to trying it this morning – YUM! Pancakes I didn’t feel bad at all about eating. I added some blueberries and walnuts – delicious :). Thanks for much for all of your wonderful ideas, Angela.

I made these this morning!!! I used Vega Complete Whole Food Health Opt. for some added protein though..and for the syrup I whipped up a frozen banana. It was delish!

I would love to talk to you about running training — I recently decided that I want to train for the Good Life Half Marathon in October for my first go at a “marathon!” I am so excited, but nervous. What does your training schedule typically look like??

Your blog is great and inspires me to be creative with my own recipes!

JUST made these…beyond delicious! I topped them with peanut butter, 1/2 a banana and some maple syrup ;)
Surprisingly REALLY filling, too! I’ll be making these again! :)

I’ve been having those for the last couple of days! They are SO easy to make! I usually wake up before my husband and my son, I make those first, them make the breakfast for the boys while they wake up (they don’t believe in “vegan”…yet! ;-) )…and we can all have breakfast together! It works out great!

These pancakes are perfect! My biggest problem with pancakes is portion control (I make a whole batch, and then eat WAY too many of them.) This single-serving recipe is ideal!

I mixed some apple cider vinager in with the soymilk before combining with the dry ingredients (to turn it into ‘buttermilk’) and added toasted walnuts and chopped fresh figs to the batter. I let the batter rest for about half an hour before cooking.

These pancakes were super-fluffy and delicious. I made the maple syrup/coconut oil mixture and dunked the pancakes in as I ate them. They were absolutely amazing!! Thanks for such a wonderful recipe!

Maple syurp doesn’t make you feel sick if it’s 100% real. Now, the fake stuff, like Aunt Jemima? *That* I can see making you feel sick.

Plus there are different grades of maple syrup–1’s generally better for using as syrup, 2’s better for baking and such because they have a stronger flavour (Canadian federal classification has 1, 2 and 3, basically splitting up 2 into two categories). In all a darker colour means a stronger flavour. (This isn’t targeting you specifically, but anyone who doesn’t know that real maple syrup if different from the fake stuff. I have met too many people who think the only difference is how it’s made and that the flavour is the same. If the flavour of real maple syrup varies, how can the fake stuff ever be the same as real?)

I made these pancakes and found the middles were quite gooey no matter what I tried (ie: lower cooking temp, adding more milk etc.) any suggestions?

Hi there, Im sorry that hasn’t happened to me before. I would try cooking them a bit longer to ensure the middle cooks through. Goodluck!

Do you have to prepare the dry ingredients the night before or can I make them in the morning aswell?

Reply

eli September 24, 2013 at 12:34 pm

is there any reason to leaving the dry ingredients sit at night? can i just stir them together in the morning?

These were excellent! I was really pleased that the batter itself didn’t call for any sweetener or oil. I figure, I’m going to top it with sweet things/oil or butter so the pancakes don’t need it! I threw a couple handfuls of blueberries into my batter and topped the finished product with 1/2tbsp coconut oil mixed with 1tsp maple syrup and 1/2tsp cacao powder. SO GOOD. The cacao was an incredible addition. Thanks Angela!

Hi Angela! I’m 15 and am just in LOVE with your blog! My mom and I have been following it for about a month now and WOW. You are truly amazing! I was finding it a little tough being a vegan.. not knowing any recipes to make on my own. Your blog helped me huge. I love these pancakes, and am actually typing this before I eat mine I just made. :) Perfect before school! So.. thank you. Thank you for doing what you do. <3

these were delicious ! the portion was waaay too small for me (i usually eat around 600-800 calories each meal lol), so I’ll have to double this next time. But they tasted really great :)

I loved these so much! The serving was a little too big for me and I feel kind of heavy now but it’s nothing compared to how I normally feel after pancakes! The taste is kind of bland but personally I love that taste because you can do with it whatever you want! I also love how healthy thee are! I’ll definitely make these more often!

Hi! There isn’t a single recipe on your blog that doesn’t make my mouth water and tummy rumble… However, before I can attempt to recreate these culinary delights, I need a crucial piece of information. As I am from the UK, I do not understand the cup measurements used in US recipes. Please could you explain how to convert into kilograms/grams and litres/millilitres? Especially for the recipe above! I am craving pancakes and have all the ingredients in my cupboard!!!
Kind regards,
Lucy x

I just made these and they were SO good! Wholesome, hearty, healthy and darn right delicious!

I topped with 1/2 a grilled banana and your suggested syrup of coconut oil and maple syrup! Great way to make the maple syrup go further!

First healthy pancake I’ve made that actually cooked and looked like a pancake!

Thanks for the recipe :)

I make a big batch. They freeze well, and taste just fine thawed.

These are super delicious!!! WOW. Light, fluffy, with the nutty flavours of the spelt flour. I put wild frozen blueberries in mine, and omitted the mana and hemp because I didn’t have them. Yummy.
