Shrove Tuesday will be upon us so we thought we’d get in really early and make sure that not only are you prepared for some flipping good fun, but you’re also having a healthy pancake day this year!
Tara Hammett, our Health Club Manager and one of Swansea and South Wales’ top Personal Trainers (Did we mention finalist in the National Fitness Awards Personal Trainer of the Year 2012?) has shared her healthy pancake recipe that will keep your mid week healthy nutrition in check! It’s gluten free, high in fibre and massive on taste!
Ingredients: (for one pancake, increase ingredients accordingly)
For the pancake:
1 Tablespoon Coconut Flour
2 Egg Whites
¼ Cup Coconut Milk
For cooking in the pan:
For adding at the end (optional):
¼ teaspoon Truvia
Mix all your pancake ingredients together. Firstly I whisked my egg whites up, then I added the flour and milk to a nice little batter.
Add ½ teaspoon of coconut oil to the pan and swish it around.
Add your pancake batter to the pan and cook on one side for about a minute whilst swishing (said that twice now) the batter evenly around the edges.
Then…..the next move is your shout….what will it be??
Risk a toss???
Well…..I’m gonna put it out there – I flipped!! Which I must say is medium on the adventurous scale, because sometimes I totally bail out and cook the other side under the grill (top tip).
Cook the other side for about another 30 seconds, then slide it out onto your plate, sprinkle with a bit of truvia and squeeze some fresh lemon and tuck in!!
So, you’ve had fun, you feel like you’ve indulged and you can enjoy the rest of your evening guilt free!!
