Pancakes aren’t just for one day… they’re for life

Pancake Tuesday is my favourite day of the year. Growing up my mum made the best pancakes, thin & crispy crepe style with every type of topping you could think of and she didn’t just limit it to one day a year, she even had a professional crepe maker!

I wanted to do a quick post before tomorrow of nice and easy healthy pancake recipes and healthy topping ideas. I know theres lots of healthy pancake recipes out there but I wanted to show you ones that have few ingredients & are just simple!

Thin & crispy
*Serves 3-4.

  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup of quark or fromaige frais( fat free optional) both available in Tesco or Dunnes.
  • 2 tbsp liquid stevia
  • 1tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp oat bran

All in one mix! Make them nice and thin, great with some freshly squeezed lemon and honey.

Protein pancake
*My favourite

  • 1 scoop vanilla whey protein
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 2 eggs

Blend together, spoon it onto a hot pan. Dont over cook just a minute on each side so the inside stays nice and gooey! Serve with some more almond butter:)

Healthy take on mums Crepes
*makes about 12!

  • 170g wholemeal/ gluten free flour – Red Mills “all purpose” gluten free flour available in Tesco.
  • A good pinch of salt
  • 2 large eggs & 2 egg yolks
  • Pint almond milk
  • 3-4 tbsp melted cocoa/coconut butter ( not oil)

Add eggs to dry ingredients, and combine. Add the milk in gradually until its a light bubbly mixture. Let it set in fridge for at least 30 min or overnight and add melted butter just before your about to cook them!
