What's for breakfast? A recipe to share...

Clean eating pancakes with sliced banana and strawberries with a drizzle of honey.

The recipe is inspired by a recipe from The Gracious Pantry, but I tweaked it to accommodate the ingredients I had in my cupboard and they turned out gorgeous.

I've entered the recipe in the Sparkpeople recipe calculator, but I couldn't find some of my ingredients in the list so I used similar things. For example, I used spelt flour but could only find whole-wheat flour in the recipe calculator. Same thing with the Greek yogurt; I used low-fat Greek yogurt but could only find some branded Greek yogurt in the list.

So, the recipe calculator came with the following figures but as mentioned above, my ingredients differ slightly from the ones I found in the recipe calculator, although I doubt it makes much difference to the result in the end:

My recipe is:

2 cups spelt flour
2 cups soya milk
2 eggs
1/2 cup low-fat Greek yogurt
1tsp vanilla extract
1tbsp coconut oil

Mix all your ingredients in a large bowl until you obtain a thick batter (if you prepare your batter in advance, only add the coconut oil once you're ready to cook your pancakes.)
Pour one small ladle of batter in the centre of a non-stick pan and cook the pancake for 3-4 minutes on each side.
Serve with chopped fruits and a drizzle of honey.

I got 15 small pancakes (12-13cm diameter) from all that batter (that's tomorrow's breakfast sorted too!)

Now, my frying pan is too old to be non-stick anymore, so I used a small amount of coconut oil to cook my pancake to stop them from sticking. Frying with coconut oil will make your house smell lovely but be careful, it will also smoke out your house!!
Good grief, I wasn't expecting quite that much smoke! emoticon emoticon

So be warned and open your windows first! And enjoy the pancakes; my son and I have declared that it was the best breakfast we've had in a while emoticon

Have a lovely Saturday Sparkfriends! emoticon
