Pancakes are universally loved, and for good reason. Fluffy stacks covered in sticky, sweet maple syrup, I mean, we’re drooling already! We took a classic batter and added a few protein-packed plus-ups that are sure to jump start your morning. Our formula for the perfect stack starts with Bisquick™, the unsung hero of breakfast. Then, oats get mixed in for a hearty texture, Greek yogurt for a little bit of tang, blueberries for a serving of antioxidants, flaxseed and quinoa for good measure and with that you’ll have a batch of better-for-you pancakes the whole family will gobble up. To take your pancakes to the next level, top with maple syrup, Greek yogurt, walnuts and blueberries. MORE+ LESS-

Expert Tips

  • Freeze leftover pancakes for a quick weekday breakfast. Cool pancakes completely on cooling rack. Place in resealable freezer plastic bag or container.
  • If you don't have cooked quinoa on hand, these pancakes are great without it. Next time you are making quinoa, make a little extra to save for this recipe.
  • If you love your trusty box of Bisquick™, Heart Smart™ Recipes That Take You From Breakfast to Biscuits are for you.
  • Here’s a handy tip that’ll help you determine whether or not your griddle is hot enough: Sprinkle a drop of water on it. If it sizzles, you’ll know it’s ready.
