KAL newsletter - Week 7 - General

American-style blueberry pancakes – The Body Coach


Makes 10




300g Plain Flour

35g vanilla protein powder

2tsp baking powder

1tbsp caster sugar

350ml milk


1-2tbsp coconut oil, for cooking

400g blueberries, plus extra for scattering


To serve


Low/zero fat Greek yogurt

Maple syrup




Tip the flour into a bowl and add the protein powder, baking powder and sugar. Measure out the milk, then crack the eggs straight into the measuring jug. Give the two ingredients a good whisk until well combined.


Gradually pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture, stirring or whisking as you go to avoid lumps. When all the liquid has been incorporated, give the mixture a final whisk until smooth.


Melt a little coconut oil in a good non-stick frying pan over a medium to high heat. When it is hot, pour in one ladleful of the batter, which will spread out across the base of the pan to about 15cm wide and 1–1.5cm thick. Fry the pancake on the first side for 3 minutes, reducing the temperature a little if the pancake starts to burn.


While the pancake is cooking, scatter about an eighth of the blueberries in a single layer over the uncooked surface of the pancake. They will be held in place by the raw batter.


Flip the pancake and cook for a further 2–3 minutes, again upping or reducing the heat as necessary – these pancakes are like most other pancakes in that the first one is often not the best. Remove the pancake to a plate and keep it warm while you repeat the process with the remaining batter and blueberries.


Serve up stacks of your pancakes with a few extra blueberries, Greek yoghurt and a drizzle of maple syrup.
