Valentine’s Day was never something I use to bother with but last year I got truly pampered by my boyfriend and decided that actually, Valentine’s is pretty awesome when a spa and fancy restaurant is involved.
It also means that spring is on its way which means one step closer to summer!
Another reason I love Valentine’s? Chocolate. My favourite thing. Now that I’m all healthy and what not I thought I’d try my best to make healthy versions of some Valentine’s treats you might like to share with your loved one. Some of them are kinda healthy but I’d still recommend eating them only in moderation.
Obviously these recipes were sooo dull to create and I definitely didn’t lick the bowl at all. Not once. Girl guides honour. Ahem. Anyhoo lets get to it!
So this is one of my new favourite pancake recipes. I LOVE pancakes- it’s become a Sunday/Weekend tradition for my boyfriend and me to treat ourselves and have pancakes. This recipe isn’t one of my most healthy, but it also isn’t that unhealthy, especially if you make it with my strawberry puree instead of adding sugar or maple syrup.
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.
