Pink Berry Pancake Recipe

I’ve been a fan of superfood powders for a few years now.  Wheatgrass was the gateway powder – adding bags of nutrients (and a strangely lawn-like flavour) to my morning orange juice.  Then Spirulina, ashwaghanda and macha followed quickly after.

These pancakes owe their beautiful colour and mild berry taste to red berry superfood powder.  You can buy superfood powders from all the places you’d expect – health food shops, the internet.. but recently I’ve seen them popping up in more general stores and supermarkets.  So if you’d like to make them, here’s what you’ll need to do.

You will need

Fresh strawberries

140g self raising flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

125ml almond milk

1 egg

Vanilla extract

1 tablespoon honey

2 tablespoons red berry powder

2 tablespoons of vegetable oil

Method

  • In a large bowl, sieve all the dry ingredients
  • Make a well in the centre
  • In a jug whisk the egg, milk, honey and oil along with a few drops of vanilla extract
  • Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and whisk until very smooth
  • Let the batter sit for 10 minutes
  • Whisk again
  • If you feel you need more colour then add some more red berry powder a teaspoon at a time

  • Prepare a large frying pan with a little vegetable oil
  • Spoon small amounts of batter into the pan.  Work on one at a time and use the back of the spoon to create small circles
  • Flip the pancakes with a pallet knife or small spatula
  • Once cooked, stack into threes and drizzle with a little honey
  • Create the strawberry hearts using a small cookie cutter and slice in half if necessary
  • Poke a cocktail stick into the bottom of each strawberry
  • Push the rest of the cocktail sticks through each pancake stack
  • You can make these the night before and simply warm them up in the oven

These obviously taste great warm but they’re actually quite nice cold so would make great party snacks or even packed lunch treats.

Love Rachel ❤️
