My Top 3 Pancake Recipes

My Top 3 Pancake Recipes

Pancake Tuesday has always been a staple celebration in our house. Growing up we took it as a very serious affair. My mum had a special crepe machine and the sincere joy I would feel when it would appear that time every year, was ridiculous! I would get through 8-10 crepes in a sitting and wish I could have pancakes everyday….. it’s like all my childhood dreams came true because now I kind of do :) I love having pancakes for breakfast, they’re so satisfying and simple. I’ve compiled my top 3 pancake recipes to help you get that pancake fix but still keep those healthy goals in check. Whether you love crepe style, thick and fluffy or fudgy, there’s a recipe for you.

 

Oat Crêpes

Serves 1

 

I love taking old-fashioned breakfast ingredients like oats and making it into something that tastes like a treat.

 

Ingredients

 

  • 50g gluten-free oats
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp. non-dairy milk
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. Greek yoghurt
  • 1 tsp. honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. coconut oil, for frying
  • Chocolate pecan spread to serve (optional)
  • Sliced bananas to serve (optional)

 

Method

 

  1. Blend all the ingredients except the oil in a food processor until a smooth, thin batter forms.
  2. Heat a little coconut oil in a non-stick frying pan over a high heat.
  3. Pour in one-third of the batter and spread it evenly over the base by tilting the pan or by using the back of a spoon. Immediately reduce the heat to low and cook for about 2 minutes, until bubbles start to appear on top and the edges begin to lift up from the base of the pan.
  4. Flip the crêpe over and cook for 1 minute more, until golden brown.
  5. Repeat with the remaining batter, making sure you always start off with a high heat and then reduce it as soon as you pour in the batter so that the crêpes all cook evenly.
  6. Serve warm with a little chocolate pecan spread and sliced bananas.

 

Simple Protein Pancakes

 

Simpe Protein Pancakes 

 

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp. almond butter smooth
  • 2 tbsp. protein powder

 

 

Method

  1. In a small bowl, combine all ingredients well using a fork until there are no lumps and the mix is smooth and creamy like caramel sauce.
  2. In a non-stick pan over a high heat, add a little oil ( if its a good non-stick pan you won’t need oil).
  3. Spoon some of the mix onto the pan, don’t spread it out thin – you want them a little thick.
  4. Cook for about a 50-60 seconds. Once the base is ready to flip, flip that pancake and cook for 30 seconds. The middle should be nice and fudgey with the edges fluffy ad slightly crispy.
  5. Enjoy with your favourite toppings!
