Remember that heavy feeling you can get in your tummy from eating pancakes?  Typical pancake recipes are not the most health supporting foods you can eat.

By adding the sourdough culture,  pancakes become much easier to digest, and do not leave a heavy feeling–try it out, and share a comment on your results!


Simple Sourdough Pancakes

Use your favorite whole grain pancake mix.

Replace 2 tablespoons of liquid (milk or water) with 2 Tablespoons of sourdough culture.  If you want it to taste more sour, add more sourdough culture; for less sour taste, add less culture.

For more healthful cultures, digestibility, and nutritional value, mix the pancake mix together (omitting eggs) and allow it to set overnight on the counter.  In the morning, add the eggs just before cooking.

Cook your pancakes as usual, on a hot griddle.


Super Scratch Pancakes

  • 2 cups whole grain flour
  • 3 Tablespoons sourdough culture
  • 1/2 teaspoon aluminum free baking powder
  • 1 beaten egg or 1 “vegan egg
  • 1-1/2 cups water (or more if you want thinner pancakes)

Mix all ingredients together and cook on a hot griddle.

Serve with real Maple Syrup or with fruit preserves.   As above, if you want to add more probiotic cultures, greater nutritive value, or more digestibility, mix the batter the night before (omitting egg), and allow it to set over night on the counter.

In the morning, add egg and cook as usual.  You may leave the baking powder out if you use this method, as the sourdough will raise by itself.
