Fluffy rainbow pancakes

What a year 2017 has been. I'm going to spare you the reminiscing and the resolutions small talk and skip right to the recipe - maybe that will also keep you on your toes!

You know what they say, new year, new naturally colored fluffy pancakes recipe - so here it is - my last post of 2017, marking the 180th recipe on this website since May 2017! Would've hoped for 200th, but I'll take 180. #AnnoyingOverachieverVibes.

Fluffy rainbow pancakes

These pancakes are not your average fluffy pancakes, they are naturally colored using berries and other colorful fruits and nuts - which also adds a really nice flavor. They also are different than the rest of the pancakes recipes on my website, which use bananas and oats. This one actually uses the real ingredients - flour, eggs, baking powder and the bunch!

Here's what you need to create this huge stack of these super yummy and flavorful fun pancakes:


- 2 cups whole wheat flour (or plain flour)

- 2 tsp baking powder

- 1/2 tsp baking soda

- 1/2 tsp salt

- 2 eggs

- 1 cup almond milk

- 4 tbsp maple syrup

- 1 tsp vanilla extract

- 2 tbsp coconut oil

For the colors:

- Pink: 6 large strawberries

- Purple: 10-12 blackberries

- Red: 12-15 raspberries

- Orange: 1 tangerine, peeled and seeds removed

- Green: 12-15 pistachios


1- Blend the pancakes ingredients together by first mixing together the dry ingredients in one bowl (flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt) then the wet ingredients in a separate bowl (eggs, almond milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and coconut oil). Combine both mixes together and blend until well incorporated.

2- Use an ice-cream scooper, scoop out 2 scoops of the pancake mix, place in a blender, and blend with strawberries. Place the pink mix in a bowl, let it sit. Then scoop out 2 scoops, blend with blackberries, let it sit in a separate bowl. Keep going until you've done all the colors (be sure to wash your blender each time).

3- Brush a pan with coconut oil, let it heat on low, and start with the mix you finished first (the strawberry). Place 1 scoop of the colored mix at a time, and flip when bubbles start to appear closer to the center. Keep going until you've finished all the mixes. Hint: it is much faster to do this using 2 or even 4 pans on your oven top.

4- Once done, stack all pancakes alternating the colors. Top off with your choice of toppings. I found these to be delicious as is - no maple syrup required. But hey, if you're feeling crazy, go for it!

Enjoy! Here's to a 2018 full of healthy and delicious sunny recipes that will make your day! See what I did there? Happy new year friends!
