  • When selecting the egg whites, make sure they are at room temperature for best results.
  • It is important to use vanilla extract for the best flavor, not vanilla essence.

  • Substitute agave nectar for sugar - Agave nectar is a natural sweetener that is lower in calories than sugar and has a milder flavor. This substitution will help reduce the amount of calories in the pancakes, while still providing a sweet flavor.
  • Substitute almond milk for cow's milk - Almond milk is a dairy-free alternative to cow's milk. This substitution will make the pancakes vegan-friendly and also reduce the amount of calories in the pancakes.

Chocolate Chip Pancakes Add 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to the batter and mix until just blended. Proceed with the remaining steps.

Maple-Glazed Bacon: Crispy and sweet, this maple-glazed bacon is the perfect accompaniment to the Hungry Tiger Pancakes. The salty bacon and the sweet maple syrup provide a delicious contrast to the fluffy pancakes.

Scrambled Eggs: Scrambled eggs are a classic breakfast dish that pairs perfectly with the maple-glazed bacon. The creamy eggs provide a contrast to the crunchy bacon, creating a delicious combination of flavors that will satisfy any appetite.


Q: How long should I cook the pancakes for?

A: Cook the pancakes for about 3 minutes on the first side, then 1 to 2 minutes on the second side.

Q: What type of pan should I use to cook pancakes?

A: A nonstick skillet or griddle is best for cooking pancakes. Make sure the pan is hot before adding the batter.
