We Just Tested Kelly Ripa’s Favorite Pancake Recipe (& It’s Surprisingly Healthy)

We love all things Kelly Ripa. We already know what her gorgeous garden looks like, how her style has changed over the years and even how she hides gray hairs. Add to the list how she makes her favorite pancakes.

PureWow creator Juliette tested the recipe on the latest episode of Celeb Bites (see above). Check out the video to see how things turned out.

We also chatted with NYC-based celebrity certified nutritionist, Dr. Daryl Gioffre, whose clients include Ryan Seacrest, Bobbi Brown, a bunch of Bravo housewives and, of course, Ripa.

He told us that the Live with Kelly and Ryan co-host, 50, is always looking for healthier versions of her favorite foods. Case in point: this pancake recipe, which we're absolutely making for our next weekend breakfast.
