Whole wheat Malungay Pancake & other Pancake ideas

Jan 18

Breakfast at home is either pan de sal, whole wheat bread, fried rice with longanisa or pancakes. I don’t make pancakes from scratch so I make it a point to buy those ready mix from all sorts of brands. Just recently , I got introduced to Maya ‘ThinkHeart’ Whole Wheat Pancake Mix. This is certainly good news because I want as much fiber in my diet. Studies show that whole wheat reduces the risk of heart disease, lowers blood pressure, contains antioxidants, reduces the risks of certain types of cancer and aids in weight loss.

Maya ‘ThinkHeart’ Whole Wheat Pancake Mix is cholesterol free, has zero gram trans fat and uses muscovado sugar which is high in potassium, calcium, magnesium and iron.

Try these three heart-healthy recipes made possible by Maya ‘ThinkHeart’ Whole Wheat Pancake Mix.
