These lemon curd whole wheat pancakes and moist, thin and fluffy. Very easy to make and perfectly paired with fresh raspberries and pure maple syrup. There is no lemon curd in them, called them “lemon curd”, because of the cottage cheese used in the recipe.

Lemon Curd Whole Wheat Pancakes

Anyone here for a simple, but loaded with wholesome ingredients breakfast?

I usually make crepes and pancakes on the weekends and have something quick – like biscuits or yogurt on a weekday. I’ve made these lemon curd pancakes many times, using white or whole wheat flour. Just to give them a healthy twist!

To be honest – I prefer the whole wheat version, it just has more flavor. Pancakes made with whole wheat flour usually are not as thick. You won’t taste whole wheat, I can promise you, because I used lemon zest in the recipe, which helps to balance the flavors.

Made these with buttermilk, because it makes pancakes (even whole wheat) extra fluffy. If you don’t have buttermilk in your fridge, check the recipe notes on how to make it yourself.

I also added some cottage cheese (I always have some in the fridge) to boost the protein content.

These lemon pancakes are very delicious and packed with some fresh, wonderful flavors.

I like making pancakes/crepes in my blender and it only takes me like 2 minutes to whip up the batter.

Perfect to enjoy by yourself, with your family or serve to a crowd.

Served mine with fresh raspberries – lemon and raspberries = great combination! And of course a lot of maple syrup. But you just serve them with your favorite stuff – fresh fruit, jam, top with nuts or even pour some melted butter on top.

Do you like pancakes for breakfast?

  1. Mira, I love everything about these pancakes – lemon curd, whole wheat and that stack high picture!! Yummy!

  2. These pancakes look perfect, Mira! Such a great idea to add in lemon curd. I’ve never had whole wheat pancakes before, so I’m pinning and can’t wait to try these for breakfast! Yum!

  3. Mira, these look wonderful, and I’m glad you made a note at the top that these don’t have lemon curd in them — I totally thought that’s what you meant. Cottage cheese is such a nice wholesome ingredient to have in here, and making them in the blender sounds so easy! Pinned.
