Pancake Recipe for One (or for baby and me!)

I love pancakes. You know what is annoying though? Most recipes call for a huge batch. Sorry, but I am not going to down 16 pancakes in one setting. I try and do the math, but then just give up and cook some darn eggs. This recipe is perfect for one or two people. Lillian and I shared pancakes and it was the right amount. Plus, they are SO good. Light and fluffy, and even a little healthy with the whole wheat flour thrown in there. Make them for yourself, or for you and your kiddo. You will love em’!

Whole Wheat Pancakes for One Recipe
Adapted from Alex Likes to Cook

  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk (or milk substitute, vanilla almond tasted great!)
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil


1. In a bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, powder and salt. 
2. In a medium bowl whisk egg, milk, and oil. 
3. Stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients until just combined. 
4. Preheat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and lightly spray with cooking spray. 
5. Pour 1/3 cup of batter onto pan and cook until bubbles form on surface. 
6. Carefully flip the pancake and cook on the other side. 
7. Repeat! Usually makes about 4-5 medium pancakes. 
Top with honey, agave nectar, or maple syrup! Tastes delicious with butter or peanut butter too:).
