Healthy Oatmeal Pancakes with a Berry Compote

IMG_0649.JPG

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.

Ingredients:

  • 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

Method:

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.

Vegan Chickpea Tacos with Crunch Mango Slaw & Spicy Red Pepper Sauce

Juice 2-4

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.

Juice 2-5

So lets get down to the nitty gritty.

IMG_8264This 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!

Working Out with Kayla Itsines #sweatwithkayla


Kayla looking amazing (her body looks even better IRL, and a sweaty Sam and me after the workout).

It’s not every day I get to meet one of my idols but on Sunday I was lucky enough to meet the incredible Kayla Itsines.

She is such a great role model and the person who had a big impact on me losing over a stone and a half of weight.

Kayla inspires over 3 million girls every day with her awesome lean, mean body and motivation attitude.
So when I heard she was putting on a bootcamp in London I absolutely HAD to be there.
