This year, now with two little people in the house, I decided to try a healthier pancake option for Shrove Tuesday. After working with Nutritional therapist, Sarah Grant of Gut Reaction on our latest nutrition programme, Eat, Sleek, Repeat, among other things, I realised that yes, pancakes can be part of a healthy diet! This yummy recipe gives such scope for variety and along with many others is featured in the Eat, Sleek, Repeat 14 day nutrition programme. If you are looking to get excited about clean, nourishing food, this is an accessible and enjoyable way to prepare it and eat it. Now bring on those pancakes!
Pick the base recipe you want from the three options to the right (there is a vegan option too). These pancakes are made from banana or oats that are full of slow release carbohydrates to boost and balance your energy levels.
To cook the pancakes (all options), melt a little coconut
oil in a hot frying pan and fry on each side for about 60
Finally, choose your topping or filling to suit your taste buds.
♦ BANANA PANCAKES
1 small banana or 1⁄2 medium banana, 2 eggs. Mash
the banana and mix the eggs in thoroughly
