Individual Whole Wheat Puff Pancake with Personal Toppings [No Sugar Added]


Variety is the spice of life!!!

Don’t you just love to make 2 or 3 different breakfast options for your family to suit everyone’s tastes?


HA! Neither do I!!!! I like everyone to eat the same thing and with a family of 5 and 2 very picker eaters that is super difficult.

In fact I don’t really even like to flip pancakes at the stove. The oven is my best friend. I love to prepare something and let it do its thing in the oven and call it a day.



This recipe is almost exactly the same from my Original Whole Wheat Berry Puff Pancake.When I’ve made that recipe as well as my Banana Puff Pancake there was always one who didn’t like it. No idea why I didn’t think of this sooner, but here it is!

THE BIG HUGE difference here? You still make the batter easily in the blender then separate it evenly into 6 ramekins! Add blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, even chocolate chips into each batter! Whatever they want!

Don’t they look so good? Like a souffle almost! They bake for a bit longer than the original whole pan version, but who cares right?



Let them cool a bit and then use a butter knife to loosen around the edges. Pop it right out with a fork in the center and lift! Add some honey on top and enjoy hearing no sound at all coming from your family. SILENCE is golden! It means that are all happily eating what you placed in front of them all because they were able to choose. :)

This delicious mixed berry one is all mine!!

    Looks delicious! I need to put the pastry flour on my shopping list for this week. I so need new ideas for breakfast. TFS, also voted.

  2. This looks amazing…a ‘must-try!’….and I voted for you also. Good luck!

  3. These sound so delicious, and I love that they are individually sized! They must be scrumptious with the bursts of fresh berry flavor!

  4. these look awesome! I am thinking this will be a good meal for the upcoming week. Thanks for the idea!

    • What a clever idea! These are super cute. I did some sheapd pancakes for christmas but using holiday-themed cookie cutters as moulds. Nothing this cute though. I think I am going to start going crazy with my pancakes using this technique.

  5. This is great, I have 6 kids and trying to find something else for breakfast besides somewhat healthy cold cereal that they all will eat has been a challenge. And…I bought whole wheat pastry flour for a recipe I saw, and now cannot remember what recipe that was, so I have it sitting in the fridge :). Just made a batch of breakfast burritos for 4 of the kids today to get them through HS finals this week, so will try and whip these up tomorrow.

  6. What a BRILLIANTLY simple and delicious recipe!!

    My kids love pancakes, I share your aversion to flipping them as well. This is going to be my Sunday breakfast. Heck, if I can get myself up a little earlier in the morning, this can go as a great breakfast for weekday morning as well.

    I can already see the toppings – strawberry, chocolate,cherry….yummmm!!!

  7. Barbara says:

    Have you tried taking them out of the ramekins and freezing them for later?

  8. Do you think that these would freeze well?

  9. Leilani says:

    These look delicious. What size were your ramekins?

  10. Do you think you could use other flours like quinoa for a gluten free version?

  11. Pam in Siler City, NC says:

    I think I’ll try this in lined muffin tins….whatcha think?
    Sounds SO delicious! Thank you :)

  12. I tried making them gluten free today. I used the all-purpose gluten free flour mix from Cooking for Isaiah. They turned out well but nobody here liked them. :-( I think they were a little heavy on the eggs, my husband described as more of a strawberry omlet than a strawberry pancake. I made them in muffin tins rather than Ramekins.

  13. I made these and the kids ate them but they totally collapsed! What did I do wrong? I don’t think they were undercooked (not wiggly at all) but would over cooking make them collapse? They seemed a little dense but I’m not sure if that’s because they fell!

    Any tips?!?!

    FWIW, I sprinkled cinnamon sugar on them and that was a big hit (and made them smell awesome)!

    • My pictures were taken right once they came out of the oven and they too collapsed alittle. Did you change anything in the recipe? We allowed them to cool a bit before removing from the ramekins onto a plate but they were still puffy and not flat like a pancake. I doubt if you followed the recipe you did anything wrong.

  14. Hi! Your recipes all look great and i have tried some and they all come out yummy! I was just wondering what you thought about the sweetleaf powdered stevia. Could it be used in place of the liquid stevia? Also, does it have an aftertaste? Which powdered stevia do you prefer? Thanks!!

  15. Made these this morning with unsweetened coconut milk and they turned out really well, for anyone who is dairy free. I also substituted almond extract for vanilla and it gave them a delicious flavor. Thanks for the idea!

  16. I am on the paleo diet. What kind of flour can I switch the wheat out for? I’m new to this so I’m not sure how each flour works and if I would need to add something extra like more milk or eggs to help it. Thank you! I’m dying to eat something like pancakes for breakfast! :)

  17. What do you think Brenda, Can I make this Gluten Free? We are eating gluten free to help my youngest who was diagnosed with ADHD. It is helping if we stay strict.(one ‘sluge meal’ on the weekend is allowed). Girls are getting tired of the eggs and baked oatmeal for breakfast.

  18. I would probably add a drizzle of agave syrup. The recipe looks super easy. Love that!

  19. I ont have single cups, have u ever tried it in a baking pan. Can I do it like that?

  20. Ok, I just made it and it really yummy thank you, I put bananas abd blueberries, I also made it in a baking pan, love it :)

  21. These look great! Do you think that I could use equivalent amount of liquid eggs (i.e. eggbeaters) in lieu of whole eggs?
