We Found Packs of Instant Pancake Mix That Are Actually Good For You
You can use them to make waffles, too!
Pancakes are a sweet treat loved all over the world. In fact, there are all kinds of ways to make pancakes depending on where you live. They've been especially popular in Manila amidst the community quarantine thanks to their fuss-free prep (just buy a pancake mix of your choice!), versatility (you can use pancake mix to make cookies and doughnuts), accessibility, and of course, delicious taste.
However, you may find that traditional flour pancakes can be unhealthy when eaten in excess because you're overloading your body with carbs, sugar, and fat. But hey, that doesn't mean you need to stop eating pancakes altogether! We found some healthy alternatives you may want to check out. Each of these is packed with lots of nutritional benefits and can cater to a variety of diets and eating habits.
Here are some healthy pancake mix packs you can shop in Manila:
