I always try to make my traditional Mexican cooking recipes healthier and whole wheat pancakes are definitely a better option to satisfy a craving if you need to control your sugar levels. Always remember that quantity matters! if your sugar is controlled you can add 1 teaspoon of sugar or maple syrup to your pancakes. This recipe makes pancakes for 4 people.

There are some brands that offer low-carb or sugar-free syrups that taste like maple syrup. A trick sometimes I use is to dissolve an envelope of stevia in a little water and a pinch of butter and then add it like honey or maple syrup to my pancakes.

Remember that this recipe for whole wheat pancakes will help your sugar levels to do not rush up as they do with white flour but still this is carb so keep the portions controlled and another good trick is to add to the mix some grated zucchini to add m=some more fiber and prevent sugar levels to rise too fast.
