HEALTHY PANCAKES FOR SHROVE TUESDAY

1024 512 Holly Parsons

PANCAKES DON’T HAVE TO BE UNHEALTHY. IN FACT, WITH JUST A FEW SIMPLE SUBSTITUTES THEY CAN BE TRANSFORMED INTO A HEALTHY, NUTRITIOUS MEAL.

If you’re looking for small changes, start with swapping your plain flour for wholemeal or buckwheat flour. Substituting semi-skimmed or full fat milk for skimmed milk is another easy way to make your pancakes a bit healthier. Or even using Greek yogurt to top your pancakes, rather than ice cream or cream.

However, if you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, we’ve got your Shrove Tuesday meal sorted! We’re stepping away from the traditional and making things a bit more interesting…

MAIN

Make your Shrove Tuesday main both delicious and nutritious! Crepes tend to be lower calorie than American pancakes,but are less filling, so it just comes down to personal preference.

  • Mixed berries: the goodness of a classic crepe, but with the option to make them gluten free.
