Pancakes can be healthy when made & served with the right ingredients! 

 

Why these pancakes are healthy: 

  • They contain oats instead of white flour meaning they are rich in soluble fibre, which keeps your bowels regular & reduces cholesterol reabsorption in the large intestine. 
  • High in protein from the eggs, milk and yoghurt to keep you full and aids in muscle repair/regeneration
  • They don't contain any refined sugar or flour like regular pancake mixes that can spike your blood sugar levels.
