Lo-Dough Cinnamon Pancakes with Berry and Chia Coulis

Lodough_cinnamon_pancakes_with_berry_and_chia_coulisStarting the week how you mean to go on. Indulgent, healthy and tasty, yet on plan. Perfect for a Monday morning with your working week just beginning. I wanted to make these look not just a feast for your tummy, but a feast for the eyes.

I made these pancakes using the very versatile Lo-Dough which is a great low calorie alternative for many things including wraps, bread, pastry, breadcrumbs etc. It is also gluten free, fat free, sugar free and is paleo and vegetarian. Yes, you could make them with oats but in fact they would contain more calories and also that oaty flavour which I didn’t want. I wanted them to taste fresh and light and they were spot on! The Berry Coulis is possible because of a fantastic brand The Jam Goddess who produce amazing healthy extremely low sugar fruit spreads. For more pancake recipes see Nectarine and Cinnamon Pancakes

To make these delicious Cinnamon Pancakes with Berry and Chia Coulis you will need

Tablespoon

A drive to make the best and most delicious pancakes !

Ingredients

1 piece of Lo-Dough blitzed into crumb

2 medium eggs

50ml semi skimmed milk

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tbsp sweetener ( optional)

50gms The Jam Goddess Berry Burst and Chia Fruit Spread

Butter Frylight

Method

In a small bowl combine the Lo-Dough crumb, egg, milk, cinnamon and optional sweetener. Set aside

Using your non stick frying pan over a low heat, sprayed with butter Frylight spoon the mixture into 3 pancake shapes in your pan leaving space to spread in between.

Cook for a couple of minutes. When the base has cooked, using a spatula carefully flip the pancakes over to cook on the other side. Once cooked and golden brown turn onto a plate and cover with a lid or plate to keep warm.

In the same pan spoon the Berry Fruit spread and 3 tbsp water and stir until smooth. Heat until bubbling. Taste – because the spread has been watered down to a Coulis you may need to add sweetener to adjust the taste.Stack your pancakes, serve with a generous spoonful of fat free Greek yoghurt on top and pour the coulis over the top of the yoghurt. Serve immediately.
