Pancakes seems to be, becoming a weekend habit. The best part about these pancakes is that they’re healthy, so I have no reason to feel guilty about having them every week!!
I’ve been very lazy with updating my blog again recently, so these recipes are are actually from a few weekends ago.
So obviously breakfast consisted of pancakes, as mentioned, I also had a lemon and mint water.
The matcha used in the pancakes came from a new business called Vegavero, I’ve added their link below, they stock different vegan super foods, tablets etc.
Matcha is a finely ground powder which comes from green tea, this particular matcha comes from Japan and is 100% organic. One of the best health benefits is that it is an antioxidant and has more antioxidants than any other super foods! Other benefits of matcha are below:
- Boosts metabolism and burns calories
- Detoxifies effectively and naturally
- Calms the mind and relaxes the body
- Is rich in fiber, chlorophyll and vitamins
- Enhances mood and aids in concentration
- Provides vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium
- Prevents disease
- Lowers cholesterol and blood sugar
One cup of matcha has as many antioxidants as 10 cups of green tea!!
1/2 cup oats
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 cup water (or as much as you require for your thickness)
1 tbsp matcha (I used Vegavero)
1 2bsp PBfit
1 tbsp maple syrup
Handful of seeds
Handful of frozen berries
Sprinkle of coconut chips
Put the oats into a blender and blend until flour consistency
Add in the baking powder, vanilla, matcha, banana and water. Blend.
Let it stand for 5 mins to thicken
Add around 1 – 2 spoonfuls of batter to a non-stick pan and cook until bubbles start to form
Flip over and cook on the other side
Remove from the pan and repeat instructions until all of the batter has been used up
Place pancakes onto a plate and put toppings on.
Get them pancakes in your belly!!
I went for a long walk with the boy as it was so sunny (I managed not to burn, yay!). We walked from Saltdean back to Brighton, a lovely coastal walk!
For lunch I made a light salad consisting of all of the standard salady things but with some dragon fruit too, a frozen berry, chilli dressing and some caramelized onion and tomato, garlic toast on the side.
Berry Dressing Ingredients
Handful of frozen berries
Handful of mint
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 inch red chilli
Water to reduce the thickness
Put all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until desired consistency.
Drizzle on top of your salad.
Dinner ended up being a nice and easy sweet potato with beans, broccoli and edamame with sriracha (obviously) and hummus on the side.
Sweet potatoes are the best. You can have them sweet or savory, meaning they can be a breakfast, lunch or dinner meal! What’s your favourite way to eat hummus?
