Perfect Pancakes

There are many pancake recipes out there but I want to share with you a couple of my favourites:


  1. My Quick, Easy, Go To Pancakes:


Ingredients:

half a banana

1 egg

cinnamon


Method:

  1. Mash the banana and add the egg and a shake of cinnamon and whisk together.

  2. In a frying pan heat a little oil (coconut adds a wonderful flavour, but olive oil with do the job as well)

  3. Take a spoonful of the mixture and form a round shape in the pan cook for a minute or so and flip to cook the other side.

  4. Serve with a spoonful of greek yoghurt, seeds, and berries or other chopped fruit.


Nutritional Tips:

  • This is a great one for when time is short or if you are in a self catering situation as it requires very few ingredients.

  • The protein from the egg will help keep you full

  • Bananas are rich in magnesium a mineral that many people are lacking.


2. Almond Pancakes with Berry Coulis


Ingredients:

35 g ground almonds

2 large free range eggs

half tsp vanilla extract

60 g plain Greek/goats yogurt

35 ml unsweetened almond milk

80 g berries, frozen works well for this one.


Method:

  1. To make the coulis, put the frozen berries in a saucepan with a very small amount of water and gently heat until they defrost and make sauce.

  2. In a bowl, whisk the ground almonds, eggs, milk and vanilla.

  3. Heat a frying pan (again either with coconut or olive oil) and cook as in the recipe above.

  4. Top with yogurt seeds and berries.


Nutritional Tips:

  • Having the ground almonds makes them a little denser so they will be firmer.

  • Almond flour is rich in protein so the extra protein will fill you for longer.

  • Use plant yoghurt/full fat goats or sheep yoghurt works just a well.


If you are managing your weight both of these recipes will fit in well with you food plan. Both are gluten
