Pancake Tuesday - How do you make yours?
Here's a few recipes I’ve tried recently.
Soak 40gms of porridge oats in a 150gms yogurt overnight. In the morning add in 2 beaten eggs, cinnamon and that’s your batter. Cook in a slither of coconut oil and serve with whatever you fancy - you could add in some blueberries and do it American style.
2 eggs mashed with 2 medium soft bananas. Cook in a medium hot pan. These pancakes have very little substance - needs gentle handling. Make sure underside is well cooked before attempting to flip.
Spelt pancakes with pears, bacon, tomatoes, dressed with cinnamon yogurt and a drizzle of maple syrup.
120gms Spelt flour, 1tsp baking powder, 3/4 tsp baking soda, pinch salt, pinch xylitol (or sweetener of choice). Dry ingredients mixed with 180mls kefir milk, 1 egg and 1 tbs
olive oil. I used kefir milk because I had it. (Use buttermilk or milk soured with lemon juice or vinegar).
2-3 Tbs Greek yogurt mixed with 1/2 tsp cinnamon.
These pancakes are not sweet, so if that’s your preference, serve with sweet berries or other fruit and a drizzle of honey or maple syrup.
** Spelt is a grain that is descended from wheat, and it has a mild, nutty flavor that is comparable to wheat. Although spelt contains gluten, it has less than whole wheat or white flour. As a result, substituting spelt flour for white flour can make baked goods more digestible for people with a sensitivity to gluten. **
Chick Pea Flour Pancakes

Loved this recipe which used high protein, high fibre Besan (chickpea) flour, egg, olive oil, milk (giving some more protein, healthy fats and protein) and a wee tsp sugar to sweeten the deal. So lovely.
1 cup chickpea flour, 1 tbsp granulated sugar
1 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk (kefir or ordinary or use buttermilk or milk soured with lemon juice or vinegar), 1/4 cup olive oil, 1 egg, 1 tsp vanilla
Whisk the wet ingredients, mix with the dry ingredients. Cook until bubbles form (about 2 minutes), flip and cook on other side, up to another 2 minutes.
