Pancakes with greek yogurt and pomegranate syrup
Yay, pancake day!! If you saw our post on macros in regular pancakes V healthier options then you will love this recipe!
1 large egg
1 cup of self-raising flour
1 cup of milk
pinch sea salt
Coconut oil for frying
150g pot Fage fat-free Greek yogurt
Small pack strawberries, hulled and sliced
zest ½ lime or lemon
6 tbsp pomegranate molasses or honey
Small pack pomegranate seeds
Tip the flour and pinch of salt into a jug or bowl, make a well in the centre and crack in the egg. Whisk with a hand whisk until you can no longer move it, it will be very thick and dry. Gradually add the milk, while whisking until lump free.
Put a frying pan on a medium heat add a little coconut oil then use a pastry brush or piece of kitchen roll to wipe the surface of the pan so that it’s lightly oiled all over. Pour a scant ladle of batter into the pan at a time, immediately tilt the pan so that it’s coated evenly with a thin layer of batter. Cook on a medium/low heat until the pancake looks set and is golden on the underside, now you need to turn it
Use a pallet knife to gently move the pancake to one side then flip over. Alternatively slide the pancake (golden side down) onto a plate, then invert back into the pan. Cook for about 45 seconds more, or until the other side is golden. Stack on a plate divided with parchment while you cook the rest, brushing the pan with oil in between each one. . The recipe will make 7-8 depending on how much you put in the pan.
Gently warm the pomegranate molasses or honey, add the pomegranate seeds. Mix the yogurt with ¾’s of the strawberries and the lemon or lime zest. Fill one ¼ of each pancake with a dollop of yogurt and then fold up to encase. Drizzle with the warmed syrup or honey and then scatter with the rest of strawberries.
*NB When making pancakes the first one of the batch is usually the worst, don’t be disheartened, as the next ones will definitely look a lot better.
