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
- 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.
- 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:)
