Healthy Pancakes

I am looking for healthy delicious pancakes, made from oatmeal or whole weat. I can't seem to find any "go-to" places for healthy pancakes in the city. Thanks everybody.

    I have had amazing oatmeal pancakes at Sarabeth's in Chelsea Market. They only serve this on the weekends.

      Curly's Vegetarian Lunch on 14th has great whole wheat pancakes. And they run weekly brunch specials as well. I once had amazing apple ginger pancakes there.

        Curly's is one of my favorite veg. spots. I think Quantum Leap might serve whole wheat pancakes but I havent been there in awhile.
        The pancakes at The Pump are pretty bad, unless they changed the recipe lately.

        Veselka has decent buckwheat pancakes.

          I think Good Enough To Eat serves whole wheat pancakes.

            It seems like a lot of diners actually serve whole wheat pancakes, like the globe on ~48th and 9th. What's more interesting and more difficult to find are buckwheat pancakes. Anyone seen any?

                I just mentioned buckwheat pancakes right above your post!

                Josie's on 3rd Ave (and 30-something St.) has multigrain pancakes. Pretty expensive though. Some Polish/Ukrainian diners in the East Village have buckwheat pancakes - Little Poland comes to mind.

                But the easiest thing to do is probably buy some whole grain pancake mix or flour from Trader Joe's/Whole Foods and make them yourself. Probably a lot cheaper and healthier that way.

                  Souen used to serve several kinds of pancakes at brunch that were probably healthy. I thought the rice flour one tasted like a styrofoam cup. But of course, opinions vary.

                    What about The Pump or Energy Kitchen?
