Healthy Breakfast

The recipe for the pancakes comes from @angefabulous. You can find more of her healthy, nutritious recipes at her Fabulous Nutrition site.

I served these with blueberries warmed with a splash of water and a tiny amount of sugar just to get the blueberries to release their flavour, a good dollop of natural yogurt and a smattering of flax seeds.

1 cup buckwheat flour
1 cup milk
1 egg
squeeze of lemon juice
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
olive or flax seed oil

Whisk the flour with the milk, egg, lemon juice, cinnamon and bicarbonate of soda. Heat a small amount of oil in a frying pan. Pour in about ½ cup of the batter. When the underside is slightly browned and the top is just starting to set of form bubbles, turn gently and fry on the other side until that is browned too.

Serve warm with blueberries, yogurt and flax seeds as in the photo or with nut butter, berries or banana. Also nice with maple syrup but I don’t think that is recommended by Ange.
