Nutritional values

Whole wheat flour is more valuable than white flour because the outer layers of the grain kernel and the germ are ground together. As a result, it contains more fiber, protein, unsaturated fatty acids, B vitamins, and minerals. Pancakes contain eggs, which contain slightly more than 30 percent of the recommended daily dose of vitamin A. We need this for optimal vision at dawn and dusk.

Whole wheat flour needs slightly more liquid to swell than white flour because it is richer in fiber. A dash of mineral water makes the pancake batter particularly light. Try the pancakes with whole wheat spelt flour. The slightly nutty aroma tastes especially delicious with apples or applesauce, but the pancakes are not only delicious with sweet toppings, filled with steamed spinach or fresh salad, they can be a quick lunch.
