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!

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!
