Why is it that all the best national days involve naughty foods? Easter… Christmas… and now Pancake Day!
Thankfully, we’ve come up with a totally scrummy, guilt-free solution for this Shrove Tuesday, so you can enjoy a tasty pancake dish with some healthier switcheroos! Switching out flour for oats gives you a healthy amount of protein and fibre compared to regular pancakes, both of which can help keep you fuller for longer, and semi-skimmed milk is always a good switch from full fat milk to cut out a few extra cals.
This recipe consists of a chocolate peanut disc sandwiched between TWO pancakes for just under 360 cals, so that’s two for the price of one serving if you ask us! Hooray!
The bits you’ll need:
1 x Skinny Dream Chocolate Peanut Bar
1 x One Calorie Oil Spray
40g Porridge Oats
80ml semi-skimmed Milk
A pinch of Salt
How to make it:
- Cut the Skinny Dream Chocolate Peanut bar into pieces and place in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 30 seconds or until soft enough to stir with a spoon.
- Spoon the mixture onto a piece of greaseproof paper (and don’t forget to lick the spoon, of course!). Using another piece of greaseproof paper, press down on the chocolate mixture, spreading the mixture into a yummy looking circular chocolate disc approximately 10cm in diameter. Place the chocolate disc in the freezer to firm up.
- For the pancake mix, use a stick blender or food processor and blend together the oats, milk, egg and salt until smooth. Leave to sit in the fridge for 10 mins to thicken up.
- Spray a non-stick frying pan with 1 calorie oil spray and heat. Remove the pancake mix from the fridge and pour into the pan to make 2 pancakes simultaneously, each approximately 12-14cm in diameter. Remove the chocolate disc from the freezer and place on top of one of the pancakes, then using a spatula flip one pancake on top of the other to make a tasty looking chocolate-pancake sandwich. Continue to cook on a low heat until the batter has cooked, flipping the whole pancake sandwich again if necessary.
- Serve the pancakes, adding your fave scrummy toppings like berries or chopped banana and enjoy!
Lot’s of Love,
