Eggnog Pancakes



What's better than waking up to pancakes for the Holidays! I swapped out the milk in my whole wheat pancake recipe and replaced it with Silk Nog and some extra nutmeg for a fun Holiday twist.


Why Silk nog? I checked the labels of all the eggnogs available in the supermarket, and Silk Nog had the cleanest ingredients, and only 90 calories per serving. It's also non-GMO, and perfect if you are lactose intolerant. If you like another brand of light eggnog, you can certainly use it in it's place. I topped mine with a little honey and powdered sugar, but you can use maple, agave or your favorite toppings.


Today I am giving away this cute Holiday pancake set from Nordic, available at Target, so head on over to Skinny Bits for a chance to win!



If Eggnog is not your thing, check out these other fabulous pancake recipes:

    1. I think as long as it's light, it should work :) At least that's what I get from her directions. GL!

    1. I would look for a light one, otherwise it may increase the points.

  6. What a great recipe idea! I'm going to try it using a light regular egg nog. It should work because we have non-fat milk at home and it doesn't change the recipes when we bake. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Oooh, these sounds delicious! Gotta love anything with eggnog in it. :)

  9. Just FYI: I calculated the WW Points Plus for light egg nog vs. regular egg nog at the store the other day, and the light egg nog was the same amount of points as the regular egg nog. This was for one brand, so it may be different for other brands. It was one of those cases where the producer substituted fat for additional sugars. Just something to be aware of!

    1. Yes, most of them had corn syrup as the first ingredient.

  11. I am so excited that you posted this today. Another blog I follow just posted a recipe for chocolate eggnog pancakes with caramel eggnog syrup and I was completely drooling over it, wondering if I could save up enough points to make it happen. You could not have had more perfect timing with posting this recipe. Thank you so much!!!!

  21. OMGosh, my life just got so much better!! Mmmm Thank you for sharing!!

  22. Doesn't it just gross you out when you are looking at the ingredients of all of the things you love and you see that high fructose corn syrup is either the first or second ingredient in a dairy product?!? Ugh *shudders* I'm not a fan of eggnog at all, but my husband is so it's good to see that they have a "healthier" version of the stuff. Did you, by chance, happen to notice if they had an almond milk version?

    1. I was looking for almond milk, but didn't see one. I bet Trader Joe's has a good one!

    This was a wonderful pancake recipe. Great texture and tasted wonderful but I couldn't understand why I couldn't taste the eggnog. I didn't use silk, I used regular eggnog that has good strong flavour. Thanks for another great recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh my gosh I love this stuff!! I think it taste just like real egg nog and I can drink it since its fake! I can't wait to try egg nog pancakes!
