The Scrumptious ‘3 F’ Pancake!

The Scrumptious ‘3 F’ Pancake!

Don’t we all just love pancakes? They can be quite unhealthy, especially when made with plain flour. I have recreated the pancake recipe- scrumptious yet healthier version. I like to call it the ‘3 F Pancake’ – It is fluffy, fibrous and filling! So, I thought of sharing this recipe with those of you who are avoiding piling on the pounds this winter, with a guilt free pancake! Its perfect for a healthy, filling and nutritional breakfast.


Here are the ingredients (makes around 3 pancakes):

100% Organic Oat Flakes:

1 tablespoon whole wheat flour/spelt (optional)

A Pinch of Sea Salt

3/4 cup Milk

1 Egg


Take the oat flakes, grind them into a powder in a grinder, I use the Braun Multiquick MR 430 HC Hand Blender Chopper. Now use 4 tablespoons of the ground oats in the mixture. This hand blender has been reviewed on the following BLOG Photo 03-11-2014 09 45 53

Mix 4 tablespoons of ground oats, 1 tablespoon of whole wheat/spelt flour (optional) and the pinch of salt.

Create a well in the middle of the flours, adding the egg whites (or can add the whole egg, I prefer to use the Egg whites, as the yolk is high in fat and cholesterol).

To this, add the 3/4 cup of milk.

Whisk the above into a batter, add more milk if you prefer the pancakes more runny.Photo 03-11-2014 11 47 27

Add 2 spoonfuls of this batter onto a hot/preheated pan to get the perfect size. Don’t forget to flip the pancake over to cook the other side. I like to have mine with honey, or home made strawberry jam (sometimes even mushed up strawberries)!

Home Made Tabbouleh Salad

Home Made Tabbouleh Salad

 Tabbouleh is a quick and easy lunchtime meal I usually have, especially when I’m on the go. Tabbouleh is a staple food  in a number of Middle Eastern and Northern African countries. It consists of finely chopped parsley, tomatoes, bulgur (cracked wheat), spring onions and seasoned with olive oil, lemon juice and salt. The strong flavours of parsley are complemented by the lemony citrus tang. It is normally served with pitta bread and hummus, or wrapped in a romaine lettuce (the healthier option!). Tabbouleh has become a popular dish.

Not only is it healthy, but it is very filling and tasty too, in addition is considered as a good detox because of the parsley. As introduced to me by a friend; Mariana, this is how I make Tabbouleh salad, as a side with pitta and hummus, the perfect lunchtime meal.

  • Wash and finely chop one bunch of parsley.
  • Finely chop one tomato.
  • Soak 2 tablespoon bulgur in half a cup of boiling water, for 15 minutes, or until the bulgur is softened.
  • Finely chop spring onion (optional)

Mix the parsley, tomatoes, bulgur and spring onion (optional).

Now add:

  • The juice of half an lemon/lime.
  • One tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil.
  • Salt to taste.

Enjoy your home made tabbouleh 🙂
