Pancakes That Lower Your Cholesterol

Having a high LDL doesn't mean you can't eat well. I'm going to show you a healthy Pancake recipe that's super low in saturated fats.

The Ingredients

We're gonna make some substitutions here. Instead of whole milk, we'll use fat free milk. And instead of a whole egg, we'll use egg whites. Egg whites are pure protein: no fats, no carbs! And, you can buy them in a carton - this makes it super easy to use. Instead of Flour, we'll use whole wheat flour.

Did you know you can add bananas to your pancake batter? Yup, you can. It gives it a sweetness. That way you don't have to add half a cup of sugar, like every other pancake recipe, and it still comes out tasting great!

Main Ingredient Weight
Bananas 100g
Flour 100g
Nonfat milk 245g
Egg white 50g
Cinnamon Several dashes
Baking soda 3g
Salt A dash

First put the bananas in there and mash them up really good. Then add all the other ingredients and mix it all up. After that, get out a frying pan, add a little vegetable oil to grease it up. Then pour in the batter and flip it after several minutes.
