Pancake Day

Happy Pancake Day!!

Today is Shrove Tuesday, also commonly known as pancake day to the majority of us who LOVE pancakes!!

I can always remember pancake day as being the day my mum would moan about the smell and mess that making pancakes created, but yet my Sister and I used to still make them...tee he

Back then it used to all be about the classics, Lemon & Sugar and of course Nutella & Banana.
Nowadays I have experimented with healthier options that I have discovered in magazines or through people I follow on Instagram and Fitness sites. 

Here are just a few of my favourite healthy pancake recipes:

Muscle-Building Honey Pancakes:

100g Quinoa                                                         
20g Plain flour                                                      
2 tbsp Milk                                                             
1 Egg white                                                          
2 tbsp Organic honey                                              
Pinch of Cinnamon                                                
Handful of Berries   

*Boil up your Quinoa
*Once cooled whisk together with flour, milk,egg and 2 tbsp water
*Fry in a drop of coconut oil until the pancake is golden each side
*Serve up with a drizzle of honey and handful of berries

Blueberry Protein Pancakes:

1 Cup blended oats                                              
2 Scoops of your favourite protein powder                         
2 Eggs                                                                
Dash of Cinnamon                                                
1 Cup of Blueberries                                        
*Add oats, protein powder, cinnamon and eggs to a bowl
