Anyone who knows me will know that I am a huge fan of pancakes. They are the perfect weekend breakfast as they feel like the ultimate indulgent treat yet they are so versatile and with a few simple modifications, you easily can transform them into a perfectly nutritious yet equally decadent stack! It all depends on which ingredients you choose to use – swapping the white flour and refined sugar for ground oats and maple syrup is a great place to start.
If you avoid gluten and dairy like myself, or if you’re just looking to enjoy your favourite weekend breakfast in a more healthy way, look no further! Here is my step-by-step guide to making the perfect healthy pancakes.

2. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk everything together thoroughly.
