Pancake day is probably one of my favourite days of the year because you have the perfect excuse to make pancakes (duh). So I racked my brain to try and think of some healthy versions of the well loved pancake. Now pancakes on their own aren’t actually that unhealthy, it’s more about what goes ON them that can be unhealthy.
I have found a new pancake recipe here guys, I love it. They are really cute little pancakes and they taste amazeballs with the fruit and a little chocolate. Also because they are mini, the calories are practically non-existent. They are also great to make with your kids, they can add whatever fruit they fancy.
If you make mini versions, this recipe will literally give you a bazillion pancakes, if you want normal sized ones, you will make about 8-10 depending on size.
If you want to make them protein pancakes, add a couple scoops of protein powder into your batter.
Ingredients for Pancake Batter:
8oz of self raising flour
4tbsp of sugar
1/2 pint of milk
Ingredients for Kebabs:
Any other fruit you fancy (Kiwis would be nice and colourful, and grapes!)
50g of dark chocolate
Stick all the pancake ingredients in a bowl and mix with an electric whisk (do it by hand with a whisk if you don’t have an electric one). Make sure there aren’t any lumpy bits and transfer the mix to a jug.
Heat a non-stick frying pan on medium (or use a little butter in a normal frying pan) and pour small amounts of the batter into the pan. Leave a space in between pancakes so they don’t stick together. If you hold your jug in the same place and pour, the mixture will move out in an even circular shape because, well, science 😉 just be sure to do it slowly, you don’t need very much mixture if you are making the small pancakes.
After about a minute and a half use a spatula or knife to flip the pancakes over, they should be lightly browned on the other side. Cook for a few 1-2 mins until lightly browned on both sides and put pancakes on a plate.
Chop fruit into fat slices and push onto skewers. Melt the chocolate in the microwave for approx 1 minute 30 or until melted (stopping and stirring every now and then).
Drizzle the chocolate over the pancakes and…devour!
Alternatively, make a mini pancake stack and drizzle them with chocolate:
