Whole Wheat Red Velvet Pancakes!

Every now and then I go a little crazy and come up with unexpected combinations. Here, I made these very healthy whole wheat red velvet pancakes then instantly paired them sauteed cinnamon apple (where I used sugar) AND ICE CREAM! I know! Unbelievable. But then, life’s too short to not enjoy an indulgent breakfast every now and then.

I have an entire section dedicated to Breakfast Recipes, you can check it out here. It has several other pancake recipes like Ragi, Oats, and Coconut Pancakes , Ragi and Chocolate pancakes (gluten-free and eggless), and even EASY FLUFFY PANCAKES FOR BEGINNERS !

Course: Breakfast, Dessert
Servings: 8 to 10 medium sized pancakes
Author: prattyandfood
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour (atta)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar or any healthy substitute (I usually use Stevia)
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon instant coffee powder (like Bru, Nescafe, etc but NOT ground coffee beans)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon butter or any healthy oil for cooking
Sauteed Cinnamon Apple (Optional)
  • 1/2 apple peeled and diced
  • 1/5 teaspoon ground cinnamon powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon butter
  1. In a bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and baking soda. 

  2. In a separate bowl, combine the water, milk, and instant coffee powder.

  3. Slowly, pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and mix till they're just well incorporate and lump free. Then stop mixing. If you overmix, the pancakes will come out dense and chewy instead of soft and fluffy.

  4. Heat a pan over low-medium, add the butter (or oil). Spread it around. Once the pan is hot enough, add 2 tablespoons of pancake batter. If it's a big pan, you can 2-3 pancakes at a time. Just space them 2-3 inches apart as they will spread.

  5. Let the pancake cook for a minute or so, until bubbles form on the surface, then it's time to flip. 

  6. Cook for another 1 minute after flipping.

  7. Repeat with the rest of the batter till there's none left.

  8. Serve hot with sauteed cinnamon apple and a scoop of ice cream or simply with some fresh fruit and juice for your health breakfast option.

Sauteed Cinnamon Apple
  1. Heat a pan on low-medium heat. Add the butter.

  2. Chuck in the diced apple and cinnamon. Saute for a couple of minutes until the apples lose their crunch a little.

  3. Sprinkle the sugar. Toss the apple and saute till the sugar dissolves. 

  4. It's ready for serving.
