I made awesome healthy pancakes for breakfast today (the joy of being on Easter holidays!) So must share this recipe. I was very dubious, but so pleasantly surprised. These turned out like American pancakes, not the think version we would normally have. Add more milk/water to thin out further if you want normal shaped pancakes.

  • 1 egg (or 2 egg whites) lightly beaten
  • 1/8 Cup light sunflower oil
  • 1 ¼ Cup no fat milk
  • 1 Cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 Tbs flax seeds (optional)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Dash cinnamon (optional)

Beat the egg/s with the milk and oil. In a separate bowl mix the remaining ingredients.You can either stir the flax seeds in as they are, or grind and then add. Gradually sieve these ingredients, whilst stirring, into the egg/oil/milk mix. 

Grease a plan on the hob, either with a dab of butter or with spray oil. When it is hot enough (add a teaspoon of water, if it disperses into water droplets it is hot enough).  I did about 2 tbsp per pancake. 

I had mine with raspberries and yoghurt. Delicious.
