It’s that time of year again so we wanted to share our favourite recipes with you for some inspiration - all loaded with as many nutrients as we could squeeze in!

Traditional pancake recipe:

If you are wanting the traditional pancakes to add toppings to, then it’s a simple mix of:

  • 110g plain flour
  • 2 egg
  • 275ml milk

Sift the flour into a bowl, make a well in the middle, crack the eggs and pour in half the milk and whisk together to make a thick batter, then stir in the rest of the milk and let it stand for 10 mins before cooking your pancakes (it makes around 10).

Breakfast pancakes:

This is one of our all-time favourite breakfast pancake recipes (we have been having these at least once a week for the last 5 years!). We usually replace the strawberries in this recipe with a big handful of spinach – it turns them green but the taste is undetectable and you can have fun with making monster faces with chopped fruit!

Chocolate and banana pancakes:

This one is a real treat – the sauce is one of most favourite chocolate sauces now (we have it on porridge and on it’s own as a dessert some nights too!). It feels like such a treat but your little cooks will be gobbling cashew nuts, chickpeas, dates and cacao – all packed with good stuff! Click here for the recipe

 

Chicken and veggie pancakes

Here’s a veggie version of the same basic chickpea pancake recipe used in the chocolate pancakes above, but filled will delicious creamy veg and topped with melted cheese. It’s delicious and also a fab recipe for using up any leftover veggies in your fridge!

Topping ideas:

  • Lemon curd – try this homemade lemon curd recipe! It's delicious on pancakes and a lovely thing to have in the fridge as a spread for toast!
  • Chocolate sauce – the chocolate sauce in the chocolate pancake recipe above is gorgeous or you can try one made with avocado here
  • Caramel sauce – blitz 150g dates, 150ml hot water and a tsp of vanilla essence for this sauce!
  • Lemon and sugar - have you tried coconut sugar before? It’s made from the sap of the coconut palm tree and undergoes minimal processing so retains more nutrients than refined sugar does!

If you know a little cook wanting to get involved this pancake day, why not treat them to a bundle of their very own utensils and apron?! They receive a colourful child-friendly lemon juicer, pancake turner and whisk, as well as a beautiful apron - all for just £15 (RRP £30).
