Pancakes…who doesn’t love pancakes? But did you know that pancakes can help you lose weight?.
When made with whole, natural ingredients like whole-grain flour, chia, and almond meal instead of refined flour and sugar, pancakes can help you feel full longer and stop you snacking on sugary treats. And when enjoyed as part of a balanced meal plan, pancakes can help you achieve your weight loss goals.
But don’t just take our word for it. Check out the SPECTACULAR weight loss results of mums who are enjoying the delicious pancake recipes from The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.

Chocolate protein pancakes!
These taste so good!”

Mix all ingredients together (but don’t overmix).
Spoon tablespoon size portion of the mix onto a non stick frypan.
Cook until just done.
Top with your fave topping.
I made mine into 8 pancakes, which meant approx 71cals a pancake and about
9g protein, 7g carbs, 1g fat per pancake (not including topping)
Don’t overcook and you’ll have soft, fluffy, chocolatey pancakes.

5. Gluten-Free Pancakes with Cinnamon and Strawberries*
Sheridan Tod says “This morning I was supposed to have the toast with ricotta, honey and walnuts, which is definitely a favourite – but it really felt like a pancake kind of day!
So I clicked the swap button on the Challenge App, typed in pancakes and up came these little pretties.
The serving size is so big and they taste amazing!
I made mine with unsweetened chocolate almond milk, as that’s what was open and why not?!”.
