Lazy Sunday mornings are perfect for pancake making. It’s become a little ritual between my boyfriend and me to have pancakes almost every Sunday. In fairness, we’d both happily eat them every morning if we had the time.
Although weekends are perfect for letting go a little and eating something less healthy, treating the entire weekend like that will have a negative impact on your health and (if you have them), weight loss goals.
So, I have pinched this recipe from My Fitness Pal and created my own healthy topping.
These pancakes are pretty good- they aren’t like standard pancakes, slightly heavier but still good and a lot more filling in my opinion.
They are almost sugar free; I managed to make 9 pancakes altogether-with 1tbsp of sugar in total, per pancake thats pretty much only a tiny smidge of sugar. You could also replace the butter with vegan butter and make it dairy free.
1.1 ounces all-purpose flour (1/4 cup)
1 cup oats
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup non dairy milk
2 tablespoons vegan butter, melted
1 large egg (use Orgran egg replacer
Oil/butter for pan
For the Compote
1/2 cup natural yoghurt almond/coconut/soy
1/2 frozen berries
1/2 small banana
Preheat oven to 150 degrees c
Combine the first 7 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk.
Combine milk, butter, and egg in a small bowl. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist.
Heat a nonstick griddle over medium heat (can use frying pan). Coat pan with oil/butter. Spoon about
2 1/2 tablespoons batter per pancake onto griddle. Turn pancakes over when tops are covered with bubbles; cook until bottoms are lightly browned.
I’m really excited to share with you a recent interview I had with my local newspaper with regards to some selfies I posted on my social media. Now for those of you who follow me on Instagram you’ve probably seen one or two of these pictures.
If you don’t follow me on Instagram (well for starters you should! Insta name: katyhemfit go follow me now, you wont regret it 😀 ) you can see the pictures below.
So why do I post pictures of my cellulite, bloated stomach and fat for the whole world to see?
This recipe has become my ‘go-to’ recipe for impressing friends (vegan and non-vegan) and a firm Friday night favourite when you’ve got a bit more time to prep. I never used to like chickpeas but I now realise that stems from memories of eating them undercooked which mean hard and crumbly. I have developed a great love for the humble chickpea and it is an excellent healthy option and meat replacement.
Hello lovelies! I have been so super busy recently and with lots of things going on so haven’t posted as much so apologies! I do always keep me Instagram up to date so search katyhemfit if you want to know what I’m getting up to!
This little guy is such a healthy sweet treat to have when you’re craving sugar. But, it does take a couple of hours to set so plan ahead chocolate lovers! The dark chocolate hardens when mixing with the other ingredients and creates a nice crunchy-ish textures and the raspberry and a slight tartness which really compliments the chocolate (check me out sounding like a food critic…)
