Hearty Raspberry Pancakes

I’ve been on a creative pancake kick this year, it seems. I’ve gone beyond plain pancakes to make almond oat pancakes, cookie dough pancakes and whole wheat strawberry pancakes. And yesterday? Hearty raspberry pancakes.


When we were in Ohio last weekend, my uncle made us some amazing healthy pancakes. Inspired by this, I made up these hearty pancakes, filled with more black raspberries, ground flax seed, walnuts and whole wheat flour. This may be my favorite pancake recipe yet.


Hearty Raspberry Pancakes

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

45 minutes

Yield: 2-3

Hearty Raspberry Pancakes


  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 cup low-fat milk
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 3/4 cup black raspberries (may substitute small red raspberries)


  1. Chop the walnuts into a coarse meal.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flours, flax seed, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the vanilla, canola oil and milk, stirring until completely mixed together. Fold in the raspberries and walnuts.
  3. Preheat a greased skillet or griddle over medium heat. When a drop of water sizzles when it is flicked onto the skillet, you are ready to make some pancakes.
  4. Pour about 1/2 cup of batter onto the skillet and allow to cook for 2-3 minutes. When the edges are set, flip the pancake and cook for another minute or two until both sides of the pancake are browned. Remove to a plate to partially cool, and repeat with the rest of the batter.
  5. Serve with syrup or preserves.

    My favorite pancake recipe changes every time I make pancakes (I’m a bit of an experimental chef). I can, however, authoritatively say my favorite pancake toppings are cinnamon apples and whipped cream. You recipe looks like a must try, though–so healthy and hearty!

    Hope you are feeling well (and getting some answers from the doctors)!
