Healthy Pancakes

Happy pancake Tuesday! Today is traditionally the day we (in Ireland anyway) attempt to eat our body weight in pancakes, before the beginning of Lent. While I may not agree with the overeating, I do have a healthier option for people who still want to enjoy pancakes today.

These pancakes are made with buckwheat flour, which despite the name does NOT contain wheat (buckwheat is actually related to rhubarb) and is good for the skin. Buckwheat is gluten-free, but you need to check the packaging to make sure it says gluten-free, as crops can be contaminated by nearby gluten containing crops. You can get buckwheat flour in any health food shop, and in some bigger supermarkets.

Honey has some great health properties, but should be used in moderation or avoided, depending on your individual health and fitness goals. But it’s not the worst thing you could put on your pancakes. Just keep it moderate.

You should be able to get three pancakes from the quantities below, but you can double up if you are making them for more than one person.

What You Will Need…


2 tbsp buckwheat flour

2 organic eggs

1 mango (or apple, or pear)

organic coconut oil

2 tsp organic set honey (optional), gently heated to melt

2 tbsp water (add if mixture is too thick)

fresh berries (optional)

Lets Go!

1. Peel and slice the mango. Place in a small food processor and pulse a couple of times, being careful not to over blend. Set aside…

2. In a large mixing bowl, add the eggs. Whisk together. (You can use an electric whisk or long handle blender)…

3. Add the buckwheat flour and whisk until all the lumps are gone. Add in the water, and mix…

4. Add a small amount of coconut oil to a non-stick pan and heat over medium-high heat…

5. Once the oil has melted, add enough mixture to thinly coat the pan. Spread mixture around the pan and cook until it begins to look firm…

6. Using a spatula, carefully flip the pancake and cook on the other side for a few seconds…

7. Once cooked, place the pancake on to a plate covered with a piece of kitchen paper. This will absorb any excess oil…

8. Repeat until all the mixture has been used. Add a little oil each time to avoid sticking. Use a slightly larger amount for the first one then a little less each time after that…

9. On a second plate, place one pancake towards on edge. Add the mango, spreading it along one half of the pancake…

10. Gentle fold over…

11. Repeat, adding mixture and folding until all pancakes have been used…

12. Next, add the melted honey and berries (if using). Sprinkle with cinnamon and you’re done!

Enjoy!


You can substitute apple, pear or strawberries for the mango. You could also mix strawberries with the mango.
