RECIPE | Full Fat Yogurt Wholewheat Pancakes with Frozen Blueberries
The first and most important change-of-habit is to start eating a decent brekki within 30 minutes of waking up in a morning.
No more breakfast-skipping until well after the school run. No more Belvita biscuits at 11am because however much the advert bangs on about what a great, healthy on-the-run-breakfast they are, they are full of sugary shite. So this morning I whipped these absolutely dee-lish pancakes up. It took longer than expected as I made a couple of stupid extra-curricular adjustments to the recipe, which ended in a disaster and my house nearly going up in flames. IMPORTANT NOTE: DO NOT add frozen blueberries to the pancake mixture before you cook them…
This is the result:
The third time round they were spot on and took all of 15 minutes to throw together, cook and scoff. No measuring needed.
Ingredients: (Makes 4 pancakes – I ate them all!)
- 3 big dollops of full fat Greek yogurt.
- 1 egg
- 2 heaped table spoons of wholemeal flour
- Half a teaspoon of baking soda
- A squeeze of lemon
- Coconut oil to fry
- Another dollop of full fat Greek yogurt
- A drizzle of honey
- Frozen blueberries (get them out of the freezer 15 mins before).
Frozen blueberries are not only cheaper, they last longer and once slightly thawed they provide a lovely syrupy sauce for the pancakes. Always keep frozen berries in the freezer folks. Best for smoothies, on the top of porridge, with yogurt and lots more. My kids like eating them frozen too.
How to make these delightful little pancakes:
- Bung everything in a bowl and mix it up to make a smooth batter
- Add coconut oil to pan and heat until hot – be careful it’s extremely flammable as I found out this morning!
- Drop 3 dessert spoonful’s of the mixture into the middle of the pan
- Cook on one side for a couple of minutes and then flip over.
- Cook for a further couple of minutes. Flip again if necessary, until they are lovely golden colour.
- Stick pancake one on a plate
- Top with a dollop of the yogurt, the blueberries and a drizzle of honey.
And then tuck in! Ideally in an empty room otherwise you’ll have to share them and you won’t want any grubby little hands on these!

I’m a primary school teacher and I’m a mum to a beautiful, bright and bubbly six-year-old. I witness the ups and downs of wellbeing in children every day. Every parent faces the same dilemma – how to ensure the wellbeing of our children – particularly from a mental health perspective in a world that is more pressured than ever in more ways than one.
“THIS IS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE!” my friend Kat yelled to me over the sound of a gently bubbling still with a massive gin grin on her face. For me, it probably doesn’t quite trump my wedding day or the birth of my babies, but it’s not far off! We became master mixologists, creating our own gin recipes before distilling ‘Madam Geneva’ in our own miniature stills.
It’s a fun filled day out for the whole family. There are stacks of outdoor play areas, which the kids cannot get bored of, but also some really good indoor/sheltered activities that means even on your typical autumnal Yorkshire day you can have a really good day out.
Hidden in the heart of the East Village, part of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and just a stones throw from Stratford station, are a handful of restaurants and bars. And right in the middle is Darkhorse bar and restaurant. It’s described on their website as a ‘modern European restaurant with Italian and Spanish influenced food wrapped in a British attitude’.
