0 Healthy Date Pancakes

This recipe is healthy and delicious! I cooked these last night and they were soo tasy! If you get a sweet tooth then this sure will satisfy it! I love pancakes and if you do too I am positive you will love these date pancakes! :)

For the Date Filling

Approx 14 Pitted Dates


Tbsp Honey

Roughly Chop up your dates and put into a small pan with a little water and the honey. Simmer for a few minutes until the dates start to go soft.

When the dates look soft pulp in a blender for a minute or so until it forms a paste. (If it is too thick add a tiny amount of water to loosen it but try to pulp it first - sometimes it looks thicker than it is)

For the Pancakes
Some Wholewheat Flour
2 Eggs
2-3 Tbsp Honey
Approx 1 Pint Milk

First sieve the wholemeal flour into a bowl and discard the left over wheat bits(pour bits back into flour bag or seal in a bag for a different recipe).

Now in a separate bowl whisk your eggs, add honey and whisk some more. Then add one and a half - two cup fulls of your sieved flour and mix well - it should look like a cake mix. Then gradually keep adding our milk until it becomes more loose - when ready it should be like a thick batter - NOT as thick as a cake mix.

Heat a griddle/frying pan to hot then add a small drizzle of rapeseed oil with a small blob of butter/healthy margarine(olive oil is too savoury for this dish and butter will burn without the rapeseed oil. You only need to do this once, once is enough to grease the pan.

Pour in some batter as you would a pancake and tilt the pan a little to let it spread. You can tell when it is ready for turning over as it cooks the batter will look more solid - cook it for a minute or so then turn it over.

Onced turned over you might want to gently press down the sides with your spatula if the edges lift - don't worry though. Cook for a minute - it is ready when it is a little golden brown on each side.

Now put your pancake onto a plate and coat with your date filling.

Roll up the bottom of the pancake.

Keep on rolling to the top.

Now cut the roll into three pieces diagonally.

Serve with some more of your date filling. Enjoy your healthy pancakes! :)
