Pancakes are a family favourite in our home. Our kids enjoy making them and eating them for sure.
One thing I love about this simple recipe is its versatility. You can easily adapt it to your healthy lifestyle by adding whatever you fancy to the mix or by switching the traditional ingredients with healthier options.
For example, would you rather have a vegan pancake? Remove the eggs from the recipe and swap the dairy milk with a plant-based one to get a delicious and lighter pancake.
Another idea is blending a teaspoon of baobab powder to your mix. Not only it will add a lovely fruity flavour to your pancake, it is also a great way to pack them with Vitamin C, Calcium and fibre.
Let’s see how you can turn this family staple into a healthy and nutritious meal for the whole family to enjoy.
