Pancake Making Tips – Heart-Healthy Pancakes

  • To make heart-healthy pancakes, substitute all-purpose flour with healthier choices.
  • Use whole-wheat flour, soy flour or corn meal and add a little ground flaxseed and wheat germ to increase the nutritional value.
  • Replace the oil or butter with equal amounts of applesauce to decrease the fat content in the pancakes.
