RECIPE | Full Fat Yogurt Wholewheat Pancakes with Frozen Blueberries

8th January 2017

Ex Leeds United football player Andy Curzons is helping me to get healthy and change my pretty diabolical eating and drinking habits (more on my shocking habits here).

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

Top with

  • Another dollop of full fat Greek yogurt
  • A drizzle of honey
  • Frozen blueberries (get them out of the freezer 15 mins before).

Top Tip:

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
  • Repeat.
  • Repeat.
  • Repeat.
  • 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!

Children’s Wellbeing | Kids these days – they’ve got it made – or have they?

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.

RECOMMENDATION | Exquisite Fine Dining in York – The Bow Room at Grays Court

Before I move onto the impeccable five-course tasting menu, it’s only fair to mention that Grays Court is the only hotel in York with private access to the city’s mediaeval city walls and the view of the Minster from some of the hotel’s well-appointed rooms is incredible. There’re only 12 rooms making this little piece of 12th century Jacobean real-estate more like a rather large and rather plush family home than a hotel.

RECOMMENDATION | Food Truck Heaven at Platform At The Arches – Glasgow

Food trucks offering an epic selection of food flavours from across the world hosted under the iconic railway arches of Glasgow Central station. This place ticks all my boxes – kid-friendly, dogs welcome, great food selection, beer to keep the hubby happy (including a microbrewery within), play area to burn off some toddler energy – but not compromising on style, decent wine if required or cool location.
