Healthy Pancake Recipe

Who Says Pancakes Can’t Be Healthy?

There is this misconception among many of my psoriasis patients that pancakes make you fat and are for people who couldn’t care much about their waistline. Well, this is simply not true, and this recipe is an excellent example to put the record straight. This is a delicious and very healthy pancake recipe for those who are allergic to many things; they taste nice and make good cold snack foods as well.


1 cup of brown rice flour ½ cup of tapioca flour ¼ cup of potato starch 1½ teaspoons of baking soda 2 teaspoons of baking powder 2-3 tablespoons light olive oil (Sunflower oil is nice too) 1/4 cup goat milk protein powder, depending on how much protein you want. (Rice protein powder would work as well) Stevia or Xylitol natural sugars to taste (optional) 1+ cup water–to taste, depending on thickness desired Additions can be sweet (berries) or savory (like zucchini).

Mix together well and drop into pan and brown on both sides. The toppings are endless, and this pancake can be eaten any time of day. It tastes nice when it is cold as well, and would be a useful addition to a picnic or a BBQ.

Buckwheat Pancakes

A Very Tasty Breakfast Treat

Have you ever tried to make buckwheat pancakes? They are so satisfying and good for you too. Many people consider pancakes too much effort to make and go for those packet mixes you buy in the supermarket. Not only are they full of things you don’t want in your diet, they are more expensive and don’t taste half as good!Buttermilk is not that hard to get, and buckwheat you can easily obtain from any good health food store.

Try this recipe, the combination of warm soft pancakes, bananas, blueberries and some (real) maple syrup on top is heavenly. Be sure to buy real maple syrup by the way, not that “fake” stuff in those plastic squeeze bottles. Sprinkle with a little Stevia (natural sweetener) and avoid maple syrup if you are worried about having sugar with your breakfast treat.


2 bananas 2 eggs 1½ cups buttermilk 1 cup buckwheat flour ½ cup stoneground cake flour (Can’t find it? Mix 1 part cornflour to 3 parts plain flour) 1 tbs brown sugar 1 tbs baking powder Pinch of Himalayan salt Sunflower or rice bran oil for frying Fresh blueberries 100% pure Canadian maple syrup on top


Whisk in the eggs, then add the buttermilk. Add the dry ingredients to a large bowl and create a well in the middle. Add the wet ingredients and whisk together until just combined. Leave to rest for 15 minutes. Add one teaspoon of sunflower oil in a pan over medium low to medium heat. Once it starts getting hot, add two tablespoons of the pancake mixture. As soon as bubbles start forming on the surface of the pancake, drop on some blueberries, flip and cook for another minute. Set aside on a plate lined with a paper towel (keep warm in the oven if you like). Serve drizzled with plenty of pure Canadian maple syrup. Enjoy!


Don’t use the maple syrup if you are trying to clear a candida yeast infection, you are best to avoid any form of sweetener until after your candida cleanse. The same goes for bananas, berries are a better option in this case.

High Fiber Breakfast

A High Fiber Diet Means Great Health

A high fiber diet affects most parts of your digestive system. It increases the amount of time you chew which results in increased salivary and gastric juice flow. This decreases dental plaque and tooth decay, satisfies your appetite more quickly and as a result reduces your total calorie intake. What does that mean? It means you feel fuller sooner and eat less, and that means weight loss. There are many more reasons why you would benefit from a high fiber diet, for example soluble fibers also tend to have a cholesterol lowering effect.

It increases the removal of bile acids, decreases intestinal absorption of fatty acids and cholesterol and decreases cholesterol synthesis. Soluble fiber also binds cholesterol for elimination. These are just a handful of the many reasons you would benefit from adding fiber to your diet, and this recipe is a great start!

Health-Tip – Blueberries Are A Super Food

Packed with antioxidants blue berries contain the immunity boosting powers and anti oxidant equivalent to 5 servings of broccoli. Eaten regularly they improve blood circulation, improve eyesight, fight urinary tract infections and have an anti-inflammatory effect. Best of all blueberries are believed to prevent cancer and protect against dementia, heart disease and strokes. Recommend 3 or 4 times a week for full immunity boosting benefits. They taste so great too! You may find berries a bit pricey, but you don’t need to eat large quantities to get the benefit. Small amounts regularly!

Bircher Muesli

Bircher Muesli Is The King Of Muesli

Do you have sudden food cravings? I am sure you do, we all like a nice tasty snack from time to time. Try this one, great for breakfast, or as a snack.
Bircher muesli is named after its creator, Dr. Bircher Benner, who was ousted from the Swiss medical profession in 1900 for his heretical claims that grains, nuts, fruits and vegetables had more nutritional value than did meats. Don’t be silly, go and wash your mouth out, doctor! In formulating the muesli, Benner had in mind his many patients from wealthy families who were suffering the effects of a diet too high in protein.

Although it was not originally intended as a breakfast food, it certainly fills that niche deliciously. Here’s the recipe. It serves 4 very modest eaters. I could eat the whole lot on a big day.


2/3 cup rolled oats (not instant oats) soaked in 1 cup of water overnight. the juice of 1½ lemons. 4 green apples (Granny smith are best). 4 tablespoons each of freshly ground almonds and hazelnuts. 2/3 cup yogurt. From 1 – 3 tablespoons of honey, depending on taste. (try New Zealand’s Manuka honey). fresh seasonal fruits like peaches, apricots, bananas, melons or mango, sliced or chopped, to taste, fresh seasonal berries like raspberries, strawberries or blueberries, to taste.


Place the soaked oats and whatever residual water remains with them in a large bowl along with the lemon juice. Grate the unpeeled apples, and mix them into the oats and lemon to avoid discolouration. Add the nuts, yogurt and honey and combine. Carefully fold in the sliced or chopped fruit. Serve: transfer to serving bowls and decorate with berries.


If you know you have a candida yeast infection then I’d suggest you do NOT have any honey or the stonefruits mentioned above. Stick with the green apple and berries, but skip the honey. The muesli will keep for 24 hours in the refrigerator. The apple might discolor but this should not affect the taste. Dipping the apple in lemon juice will prevent browning. There are countless variations with this recipe, feel free to experiment. Use top quality ingredients for the best results, for example – make sure the nuts are fresh and not stale Use an organic natural (unsweetened) yoghurt. This recipe is awesome using my three favorite berries: raspberries, boysenberries and blueberries. I’m not a big fan of strawberries these days, look at the size of ’em. Most strawberries are commercially raised these days with growth hormones and sprayed aggressively with fungal preparations. Grow your own, or buy blueberries, raspberries and boysenberries.
