Gluten-Free Pancakes with Spiced Syrup and Blueberries
27th Feb, 2019


  • 150g Dove's GF self-raising flour
  • 2 Eggs
  • Half a tsp Gluten free baking powder
  • 40g Clear Honey
  • 150ml Oat Milk (we like Oatly)
  • 150ml water
  • 200g Maple Syrup
  • 4 Cinnamon sticks
  • 6 Whole cloves
  • 6 Cardamom Pods
  • 200g Pitted Dates
  • 100g Blueberries
  • 40g Flaked Almonds

Equipment required:

  • Food processor

Makes approx. 12 pancakes


1. Add the flour and baking powder to the mixing bowl. Create a well in the middle of the dry ingredients then add the eggs, milk and honey. Whisk together until smooth.

2. Add to a measuring jug then rest in the fridge for 15 mins.

3. Heat 1 tsp of oil in a large, non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. When the oil has warmed, pour in the mixture so the pancakes are approximately 8cm wide. Make sure you don’t put the pancakes too close together as they will spread during cooking.

4. Cook the pancakes on their first side for about 1-2 mins or until lots of tiny bubbles start to appear and pop on the surface.

5. Flip the pancakes over and cook for a further minute on the other side. Repeat until all the batter is used up.

6. To serve, stack your pancakes and drizzle over the spiced syrup. Decorate with toasted flaked almonds and blueberries.

FOR THE SYRUP - makes enough for a jam jar

1. Bring all ingredients apart from the dates to the boil. Once up to temperature simmer for 10 mins.

2. Add the dates and simmer for a further 10 mins.

3. Remove from heat, remove the cardamom pods, cinnamon sticks and cloves then blitz with a food processor or blender until smooth.

Roasted Golden and Red Beets with Black Rice and Tahini

Beetroot is one of my favourite root vegetables with so much to offer in terms of flavour and colour – and most importantly, it’s in season right now. Its deep red hue, slightly earthy flavour and winning nutritional content make it a star ingredient for bright, fresh salads.

Lentil, courgette and home-made pesto

A salad that you can whip together in under twenty-five minutes is the kind of salad I want to eat every week. Yellow courgettes add a splash of colour to any dish and a welcome crunch. This home-made pesto recipe is also super easy to blitz together, the combination of aniseed tarragon and earthy basil create a vibrant and refreshing flavour. The whole dish offers an excellent combination of protein and fiber.
