My Fav Gluten Free, Vegan Pancake Recipes


When I think of pancakes I think of the words delicious, fun, filling and addicted. I'm one of those that can't go a week without having pancakes at least once, honestly I eat them so much. It's one of those meals that can be played around with so much, with the combinations and possibilities being endless. 


I like to not only experiment with my toppings but also with the way I make the pancakes, as on of my food goals is to find the perfect recipe for the perfect stack. So, one Sunday morning at the parents house I held a pancake morning and had them as my taste testers.


Recipe 1: Berry adaptation of Naturally Stephanie's pancake recipe

 1 1/4 cup oats (I used GF)
 1/2 tbsp. baking powder
 1 tsp vanilla extract
 1 1/4 cup plant based milk
 1/2 banana
Fresh Berries
Dark Choc Chips 
I blend up all the ingredients in a NutriBullet or any food processor and BOOM! It's as easy as that. 



The feedback from the fam for recipe number one was that the inside was a little too gooey compared to the outside where it was quite crispy. Now remember that these guys (apart from my sister) can eat normally, so they're used to the normal texture of pancakes. I enjoy this recipe as I find it easy to include protein powder without it throwing the recipe off. This recipe makes a light American style stack that actually isn't too heavy and stodgy. But a little advice, keep the hob low and cook slowly. If you whack the heat up on the hob and try to cook them too quickly, then the middle won't be done and it'll be a gooey inside.



Recipe 2: My adaptation of good old Jamie Olivers pancake recipe 

  • 3 ripe bananas (Mashed up)
  • 115 g plain flour (I used GF)
  • 1 heaped teaspoon baking powder 
  • 140 ml milk (I used almond)




I'm a sucker for anything peanut related, so already having a berry stack meant that I could bust out one of my favourite topping combos. Because I go through so much nut butter, I like to buy quite a few different ones and I'm so into using the powdered ones right now. They claim to have less fat but keeping that same taste and protein. Honestly, the taste isn't the same but it is definitely revolutionary as having a peanut butter sauce over your pancakes has changed my pancake life!



This stack is super high is protein and good fats with peanut butter, pumpkin seeds and crumbled Trek bar on top. Right now this is my go to on a Saturday as I weight train and love a good dense breakfast. It's a winner with the men too with my dad and the boyf loving this combo a lot. 

In terms of the pancake quality in comparison to the other, the fam preferred the overall texture to this. Probably as the recipe is the closest to a traditional pancake recipe (with just one substitute of the egg with banana). The outside of the pancake doesn't really go crispy and the texture throughout is pretty samey. 


Right, it's pancake time for me seen as it's Saturday morning. I'd love to know if you try these out, and whether or not you have a go to recipe that's different to my favs. 

Have a great weekend!

xoxo

Dreamland For Spring/Summer 2019 - Press Trip

It's that time of year again, DREAMLAND is open for business! I get so many questions about Margate and DREAMLAND in particular, so why not do another post for you. 

As a South Kent girl through and through, this place has a special place in my heart. Full of nostalgia, and pride of what it's like now. 
You may or may know that I've actually created two blog posts already from DREAMLAND, but wanted to give you a little update on it. I also played around with my camera and a new setting so it's a bit of experimenting too haha. 
Shall we?

Lets get the disclaimer out the way if you didn't catch it in the top right corner. I was invited to the park on this day as press, so received a free wristband, food and drink tokens. I wasn't asked to create a blog post in any way, but I always like to as you guys like it and its such a fun place to photograph. 

Now on to DREAMLAND:
I can't describe how much fun I always have when I visit this place. On this day pictured, it was…

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day!

I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine.

Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down.

What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the Yes To Cucumber range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try! 



It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a pretty amazing vegetable when it comes to yo…

Hi, hey, how are ya?

It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know. 
So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that). 
Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips. 
Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products I use on a rotation and not all at the same time. My skin enjoys it when it swap aroun…
