February 9th is Pancake Day!
We asked the #ukrunchat community for their favourite pancake recipes so you can get inspired for pancake day & I’m sure you will use them all year round too!
Here they are:
“I like a good protein pancake for energy before or recovery after a run ….. Add fresh fruit, honey, nuts etc if you like… they are very filing and very yummy!”
25g rolled oats
1 scoop protein powder (vanilla)
1 small banana
Splash of water
Whisk or blend
Heat 1/2 tsp coconut oil & fry 3 dollops/dessert spoons of batter, 1 min each side medium heat. Repeat with rest of batter. Serve with Greek Yoghurt.
This is a pancake recipe I use for recovery, or pre-long run:
1 cup wholemeal flour
1/4 cup flaxseed
1/4 cup baobab or raw cacao
1 & 1/2 cups of milk
Cook with coconut oil!
My Easy Banana Pancakes:
1 banana… Mashed
Butter in a frying pan…cook as pancake
Greek yoghurt.. Berries
I quite love these protein happy pancakes…Apparently baby approved too ^_^
- 1 large sweet potato, peeled
- 1-2 eggs*
- 2-3 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tbsp (a large spoonful) of butter
Boil/steam the potato & mash
Add one egg and the cinnamon, then purée again. NOTE THE CONSISTENCY! If it’s very very thick, then add another egg.
Cook on both sides.
I Love Pancakes! These ones are great- no gluten or dairy. just 50g buckwheat flour, an egg, a banana, & bit of almond milk. I always add coconut oil, chia seeds and chopped banana, and sometimes a drizzle of honey!
