Here’s an interesting twist that makes pancakes healthy! Rather than refined flour, we have used whole wheat flour to make the pancakes, and served them with a stuffing of dates, raisins and nuts.

The stuffing gives a wonderfully succulent mouth-feel and natural sweetness to the whole wheat pancakes, making it a delicacy to savour!

The Dates Pancake is low in salt, and also loaded with nutrients like iron from dates and omega-3 fatty acids from walnuts, which makes it a good dish for those with high blood pressure.

It is quite filling, and so it is enough to have just a single serving of one pancake. As a variant, you can also try stuffing the whole wheat pancakes with stewed apples.
