1 Comment

Wheat free pancakes ingredientsIngredients:

Pancakes:

Oats x 2 tbsp
Pea protein x 2 tbsp
Banana x 1
Almond (or dairy/oat/any nut) milk x 50ml
Eggs x 2

Makes 6 medium sized pancakes

Topping:
Natural Greek yoghurt x 200gm
Honey x 1 tbsp
Cinnamon x 2 tsp

Method:

Pancakes:

  • Blitz the oats into oat flour or fine particles in a blender (I jiggle my blender around from side to side so it doesn’t overheat and gets an even blend).
  • Add the pea protein, banana & eggs to blend. Finally add the milk* slowly to get a good consistency.

*More milk = runnier pancakes ie bigger flatter ones

Topping:

  • Combine yoghurt, honey and cinnamon mixing until smooth.

From my nutrition notes:
These are the healthiest pancakes you can find! Without any sugar but with the protein they will ensure you get that pancake fix without the sugar rush…and crash. For children you will need to omit the pea protein as it may overload their little kidneys. These are good for intolerances to wheat although not gluten as oats do contain gluten (wheat intolerance is usually as a result of processed wheat not gluten vs coeliacs disease with where one cannot eat oats).
Cinnamon balances the blood sugar and if you use a high protein full fat yoghurt you will feel full and satisfy a morning sweet craving.

**Edit Nov 2013 – my toddlers eat all of these now so you may need to double the mixture for a family 🙂
