If you love citrus flavours, these easy orange pancakes with thyme, sweetened with pure maple syrup will be your new favourite. No added sugar and made with mostly whole wheat flour, my son and me have given this two thumbs up each!
Summer is here and nothing like fresh seasonal oranges to provide the much needed relief. Even as a kid, I could inhale some 8-10 oranges in one go. Thankfully, under the eyes of my watchful grandparents, the gluttony would be averted.
My son’s pancake-love is legendary. If I say it’s pancakes for breakfast, his face lights up with a beaming smile. So this morning, I decided to combine my love for oranges with my son’s love for pancakes and that’s how these Easy Orange Pancakes with thyme and maple were born.

You might wonder – why thyme in these sweet pancakes? I love how using thyme totally adds a whole new flavour dimension to these regular sweet pancakes. The flavour pairing of citrus, maple and thyme is so good that it is worth trying. This breakfast also makes for an extremely aromatic kitchen experience – orange zest, freshly squeezed orange juice, fresh thyme – I love this!
There’s no added sugar in this recipe. 100% Pure Maple Syrup from Canada plays the role of sweetener with perfection – subtly sweet and not cloying. Those who have a bigger sweet tooth can always pour some extra maple syrup before digging into their stack of pancakes.
Do give these summer special pancakes a try and I assure you this will end up in your favourite pancakes folder.
