Fry Up These Healthy Pancakes This Shrove Tuesday

Once a year, 47 days before Easter Sunday, Shrove Tuesday takes place. It has become more commonly known as Pancake Day as we all use it as an excuse to feast on pancakes and unhealthy toppings before Lent begins.

Instead of turning to the traditional sugar, lemon and syrup toppings, save your teeth from excess sugar and turn to these healthier yet extremely tasty options!

 

Sweet Tooth

Fruit Feast

Mash half a banana and place it on top of your pancake. Not only is this a healthier alternative to sugary toppings, but you can add fresh berries on top to help tackle your 5-a-day target. Win-Win. Alternatively, if you’re feeling creative, you can create your own unique healthy fruit sauce to drizzle over your pancake with this recipe:
