Try this healthy pancake recipe with any kind of berry that is in season. Blueberries and strawberries have among the highest antioxidants per serving you can get, helping to remove organ-damaging free-radicals from your system. Berries also contain lots of phytochemicals that have been shown to reduce your risk of cancer, diabetes, heart disease and many types of cancer.Blueberries are particularly high in flavonoids protecting against prostate cancer and cataracts, among other things.
In addition to containing more vitamins and minerals than white flour, whole wheat flour contains more fiber, aiding in digestion and releasing sugars slowly into the bloodstream, giving you longer-lasting energy and a greater sense of fullness that will last throughout the morning.
Though this healthy pancake recipe calls for you to mix the berries into the batter, reserve just a few to decorate the top of your pancakes to make them picture-perfect!
