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 Palย 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.

Healthy Mexican Tacos

IMG_2555

Mexican food is probably my favourite food, scratch that, BBQ food is my favourite, Mexican comes in at a close second. The great thing about both is that they are super easy to make healthy (except the large handfuls or cheese and spoonfuls of sour cream poured on top of it, haha).

I made this recipe the other day when I didn’t have any taco shells. Taco shells aren’t actually that unhealthy but I fancied adding in some rice instead. You can always omit the rice if you fancy. No rules here ๐Ÿ™‚

If you want to make it veggie friendly then either use quorn chicken pieces of check out my other blog post for 10 minutes veggie/vegan tacos here

So how’d ya make it?

How to Eat Healthily on a Budget

“Eating Healthily is too Expensive”, that’s what many people say when trying to find an excuse as to why they don’t eat better. But that is what it is, an BS excuse. Yes, if you ate every meal during the day at McDonlalds, it would probably be cheaper, but you’d also be dead or seriously ill within a couple of months.

So I am posting what I eat in a week to demonstrate how easy it really is to eat well on a budget. I’ll also add my top tips on how to make your food shop cheaper.In order to bring down the cost of eating well, I will eat the same meal for lunch for a week and the same meal for supper too. Not only does this mean you aren’t wasting food by binning left-overs, but also allows you to meal-prep more easily. Here I have broken down exactly what I eat and exactly how much it costs per meal and per week.

Mini Pancakes and Fruit Kebab Recipe

Pancake Day!

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.
