The best things about weekends? Lie ins, extended gym sessions, baking, prosecco, friends, long dog walks and pancakes. And my weekend included them all.
Most of my weekends lately have been jam packed. With weddings, work and lots of adulting, so it was lovely to get a free weekend to do with as we pleased. We started off the weekend by making dinner for our friends and having one or two (or three, or four) glasses of fizz on Friday. Then on Saturday we went for a long dog walk in the park where Hudson had his first proper swim… he looked so pleased with himself and I was beaming from ear to ear. Just look at my little swamp boy go…
We then had a nice chilled afternoon before visiting our friends for the evening.
On Sunday, I woke up, made my favourite pancakes and headed to the gym for a morning of snatches with the lifting crew. It was so nice to have a long session (apart from dropping 40kg on my head) without feeling rushed. I then came home, did a mini facial, food prepped and chilled with the fam. Bliss.
Now, obviously you didn’t come over to the blog to hear all about my weekend… you came for the pancakes.
Am I right?
I adapted this recipe from a super standard pancake recipe I found online and all you have to remember is 1-1-1 plus whatever other bits and bobs you fancy. So what do you need to do?
- Serves 1-2
- 1 cup Buckwheat
- 1 cup coconut milk (or any other milk)
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- Coconut oil to cook
- Maple syrup or honey
- Mixed berries
- Put all ingredients into a mixing bowl and whisk
- Heat some coconut oil in a frying pan on a medium heat
- Add a spoonful of pancake mixture and cook until the top starts to bubble
- Flip and cook for another minute or two
- Continue with the rest of the mixture
- Stack up on a plate, top with maple syrup or honey and your favourite fruit
