Side dish for whole black pancakes and nutritional information

Whole-grain black pancakes are much healthier than classic black pancakes for the following reasons:

  • Adding whole wheat flour adds fiber, providing greater satiety and providing health to our intestines.
  • Reducing the amount of fat by using less butter and replacing whole milk with skim saves us 10 calories per black pancake.
  • Replacing black sugar with muscovado does not reduce calories, but improves the quality of the sweetener used by maintaining nutritional properties such as fiber, vitamins and minerals.

Wait no more, prepare your whole black pancakes and accompany them with a delicious mate, a coffee with milk, a dalgona coffee, a fruit juice or the drink that you like the most.
