This update on a classic pancake recipe features coconut oil, a heart-healthy oil with many benefits: lowering cholesterol, boosting immunity, improving hormone and insulin control, and providing health fats.
This recipe comes from alumna Pina LoGiudice, ND ('03), MSA ('03), LAc, who appears on the Dr. Oz Show and Katie Couric's show to talk about the benefits of coconut oil and other natural treatments. Read an interview with Dr. LoGiudice.
