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.
