Celebrating World Pancake Day with Our Favourite Pancake Recipe

It's International Pancake Day!

Some of you may think this is silly, but for myself I couldn’t think of a better food to celebrate than these fluffy pockets of goodness!

All parents would attest to breakfast time being one of the hardest meals to get right, especially with a limited time window before school and when weekend activities start. 

When I realised I could whip up pancakes with a heap of hidden goodness that the kids wouldn’t know, I feel like I’d had a little win for the day. Best of all, I could use it as bribery to get them out of bed and out the door!

These Vegan Choc Chip Protein Pancakes are exactly what they sound like. A healthy, dairy-free option that pleases the sweet tooth yet is still packed with the goodness of plant proteins and low GI carbs to keep the whole family feeling full and energised for the day. 

If you want to check out all the fun of what takes place on a casual morning at the Berdie’s, check out the video below!



We hope you get as much enjoyment out of these pancakes as we did eating them.

Much love,
