Banana and raspberry pancakes

12 August 2019

Pancakes for breakfast anyone? Kick start your day with this fun pancake recipe that is sure to prepare you for whatever the day has in store.

Nutritional highlights

Pancakes don’t have to be for just one day of the year (Shrove Tuesday). This twist on a sweet treat actually makes for a healthy breakfast to start your day. As well as contributing to your 5 a day (which only around 29% of the UK are achieving), bananas are a great source of potassium which plays an important role in regulating muscle contractions and nerve signals, particularly in association with heart health. Raspberries offer a sweet taste along with a boost on those antioxidants to keep your immune system fighting fit.
