This is my go to pancake recipe to make lovely fluffy no sugar pancakes for the kids. I am happy to eat these as they are or with fruit and maple syrup on top. I like using Greek yogurt in pancakes and can't help but throw in a few Chia seeds to boot!



1 large egg

120g self raising flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

75g greek yogurt or natural yogurt

75ml semi skimmed milk (or other milk)

1 tsp chia seeds (optional)

1 pinch salt (optional)

10ml olive oil + more for the pan

Making pancakes

Add all of the ingredients into a bowl and use a hand mixer to mix together. Allow the mixture to sit for 15-20 minutes if you can. It should be quite a think mixture. Pop a frying pan on a medium heat and add a small dribble of oil. Use a brush or kitchen roll to spread it around the pan or use an oil spray if you prefer.

Once the oil is hot enough, pour or spoon some of the mixture into the pan. I like them small. cook until the underside is golden brown and the top stars to bubble a little and then flip over to cook the other side until it's also golden brown. You can also make mini sized pancakes to take out as snacks in our reusable snack bags.

This recipe creates a lovely thick batter that’s perfect for making pancake art. Spoon the batter into your reusable pouches and gently squeeze into a hot pan.

We love making Christmas trees, snowflakes, snowmen, reindeer, bunnies, spider webs and so much more!!

Use our 250ml wave pouches or our 140ml animal pouches to create the pancake art.

Serve with fruit, maple syrup, lemon & sugar or your favourite spread! My daughter loves jam on hers!
