Superfood pancakes

As it’s nearing the end of my university semester I’ve had a very busy week so I thought I’d treat myself with pancakes this morning.

One of the things I love most about healthy pancakes is that I basically use the ingredients I would for porridge, but I convert them to make pancakes. This keeps breakfast interesting and always exciting!

Dry ingredients

The chia seeds, flaxseed meal, goji berries and quinoa flour ensure these pancakes are full of fibre.

Pancake batter

If the batter is too thick, just add a little more almond milk to thin it out.

Cooked and stacked

The contrasting texture and flavour of the cacao nibs and the goji berries work really well together.

Decorated and ready to be devoured

These pancakes will keep in the fridge for up to three days in a sealed container.
