I’m back with some more pancake inspiration.

This time they are super fruity with bananas and juicy blueberries, all topped off with gorgeous blueberry compote and lovely toasted walnuts.

The bananas add some natural sweetness which I love and nothing beats the pop of a juicy, bursting blueberry.

You can find their nutritional values and a comment from Will Hawkins Nutritionist with the Push Doctor below.

I made these deliciously healthy pancakes in collaboration with Push doctor. If you haven’t heard of Push Doctor, they are an online service enabling you to get access to GP advice or a consultation within minutes. A brilliant solution if you don’t have time to get to the doctor’s surgery. All NHS commissioned.

Will Hawkins, Nutritionist at Push Doctor, says:
This is a healthy twist to your traditional Pancake Day treat.
As well as tasting great, blueberries are low in calories and a great source of antioxidants, which protect your body against diseases. Meanwhile, bananas are rich in potassium, which lowers your blood pressure and encourages good heart health.
Buckwheat contains more essential vitamins and minerals than white flour, while it’s high in fibre, which is great for your digestion. It’s also packed with protein to help build and repair your muscles.
Walnuts contain healthy omega-3 fats, which help your body absorb vitamins A, D, E and K, and compounds that have been shown to help cope with stress. Sprinkling the finished dish with cinnamon is a great idea, as this is an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory that also helps control blood sugar levels.

For the blueberry compote

  • 1 big handful of blueberries
  • 1/2 tsp coconut honey/maple
  • Splash water

For the toppings

Instructions

To make the pancakes

  • Preheat a pan with a little coconut oil. The pan needs to be quite hot around Gas Mark 6.

  • Simmer on a medium heat until the blueberries melt down.

To serve
