Low Fat Coconut Pancakes: A Healthy Start To The Day

by Jun 12, 2016

Forget American pancakes, try our coconut alternative. In our latest recipe we give you a healthier way to flipping greatness.

Pancake day may have been and gone but it doesn’t mean it’s not flipping great every other day of the year (excuse the pun). And although we LOVE pancakes, in all varieties, we can’t have them every day (boo). Let’s face it, the real problem is that pancakes are a treat and not something that should be scoffed every week. But at TWOP we’ve found an answer. Why can’t pancakes be a fulfilling sweet delight without being totally naughty? Well they can! Get your blueberries and syrup at the ready as we give you a low-fat pancake mix guaranteed to sweeten your day.

3) Combine the wet mixture with the dry mixture and stir until even.

4) Add in the almond milk and stir the mix once more.
