Pancakes don't have to be unhealthy!
This simple, healthy recipe is quick to make and grain free. The secret to keeping them healthy is what you top them with! Go for mixed berries, sliced apple and cinnamon or nut butter and banana and you won't go wrong. Because the pancakes contain protein and healthy fats, they will keep your blood sugar balanced and you are less likely to want to reach for the Nutella!!
