Heather’s Healthy Pancakes | Fuel Your Triathlon Training

– If you’re like me you’ll
see pancakes as a treat, and that’s probably just because I don’t have them very often. But they needn’t be, because
they’re incredibly simple to make and with the right ingredients they can be very nutritious. So whether you use them
to fuel a bike ride, or for your second breakfast after a swim. I’ll take you through my
step-by-step pancake recipe. (whooshing) (buzzing) – Okay on to what we need,
first of all equipment you see I’ve got a food processor. Which just makes things
a little bit easier, but isn’t actually necessary. You do however need a
jug, and a whisk or a fork for beating your eggs,
you’ll also need a board to be able to mash your bananas on. Frying pan for cooking your pancakes, and a fish slice or a
spatula for flipping them. Unless your a real dab hand at flipping, and there’s grease free paper to put between your pancakes
whilst you’re waiting for the rest to cook. And now on to the important
part the ingredients. So you can see it’s all
pretty much laid out here. But for this pancake recipe I’m going to be using two bananas, again
you want nice ripe bananas not only easier for mashing
but that bit sweeter as well. With two eggs, then chia seeds
soaked in a bit of water. Which you will see here,
I’ll talk more about them, but it’s made gloopy mixture already. Then we’re going to be using some milk. I’ve actually got almond milk
today, but whatever you want. Some maca powder, oats
which are gonna be ground into oatmeal shortly, a bit of coconut oil for cooking your pancakes. And then we’ve got some
stuff for decoration on top. With some yoghourt, some
honey, and some fruit. Well feel free to take a screenshot now so you’ve got all the ingredients if you want to come back it later. Alright today, I have got oats. I’m gonna use two tablespoons. If you have oatmeal or
ground up oats basically then you’re good to go,
but as I have whole oats. I’m just gonna pop two tablespoons worth into the food processor. I’m gonna be blending them into more of a oatmeal type texture
to bulk out my pancakes. (food processor whirs) Okay once the oats are nice and ground, just leave them there to
one side for a moment. Now I’m going to mash my bananas. I guess you could actually
could put them in whole, but I’m used to doing this
without a food processor. So just give them a good
bit of a mash first. That’s the great thing about this recipe, you can actually do it
without a food processor if you don’t have one to hand. It’s certainly when you want ripe bananas. Otherwise you end up bending your fork. Spoon that into the mixture. (metal spoon scraping) (banging) (metal spoon scraping) (banging) Now the eggs, okay this
isn’t my best skill so don’t watch me too closely. Yes, no shell first go. (egg shells cracking) Let’s see, the second
time lucky that’s good. Okay, it obviously doesn’t matter if I have a bit of contamination, don’t want to waste the banana. It’s all going in the
same direction anyway. Give the eggs a quick beating. (sloshing) Okay and add them to your pancake mix. (metal fork scraping) This is literally everything
goes in one pot all together. So next I’m gonna go with the milk. I’m doing 200 mils of milk, which I can just about see on this jug. (calm jazz music) But like I say I’ve
used almond milk today, but can use any milk that you prefer. Next, uh right this one chia seeds. I’ve mentioned these, you can
see they’re a little gloopy. And I actually soaked
them in a bit of water. Only sort of five, ten minutes ago, and they’ve already absorbed that much. If you don’t eat eggs, or your a vegan, then chia seeds are a great alternative. I’m adding them in as well, but they really help to bind the pancakes as well as giving it
great nutritional benefit. Really high in protein
and lots of vitamins. So I’m gonna add those,
that was two table spoons of chia seeds soaked in water, just enough to sort of cover them. (banging) And then this little magic
ingredient, maca powder. That’s a root, from a root
I think from South America, but it’s full of all
sorts of great properties. High in iron, zinc, calcium, so you don’t need very much of it. And it’s not cheap but it does
have quite a distinct flavour. So before you add it to your
pancakes make sure you like it, because you don’t want
to ruin your pancakes. Alright I’m gonna add in a
tablespoon of maca powder, because I do enjoy it
as well as appreciate, oh and a bit extra, the
properties you get from this. Alright, now time to whiz it
all up, you gonna find out what consistency it comes
to, and the chia seeds will change things as
well so let’s have a look. (food processor whirring) Okay, all that looks pretty
perfect pancake consistency. So if you can see here, it’s
kind of runs off the spoon, but it’s still gloopy enough so it will hold when it
comes to the cooking. And that leads us on to the cooking, time to heat the frying pan. I’m actually gonna use coconut oil, but you can use any type
of oil that you prefer. Also you don’t want
your pancakes sticking. So be really generous and we’ll
make quite a lot of pancakes here so you can always
add in more oil as you go. But I need to go and get this melting. Okay so take a sort of tablespoon full and dollop it into your
frying pan once the oil is already warm, and you can probably fit one or two in your pan. Just make sure that they don’t touch because they do spread a little bit. And then you’ve got to be patient. You don’t want to cook them too fast, because they will burn on the bottom and you’ll find it’s
still gooey in the middle. Wait until, just seem firm enough, so you can have a little bit
of a poke with your spatula. Just to see if they are ready to flip. It is harder once it’s over to work out, but if you just give it
a little bit of a tap with your spatula on top
once you’ve turned it. You’ll start to be able
to tell the texture, and see if they’re ready to take off. (calm jazz music) Well as you can see that mixture it does make quite a lot of pancakes. And if you are wanting
to make it all at once, I’d suggest a piece of grease proof paper between each pancake and then keeping them in the oven so they can stay warm. But I got bored of that, and
I think I’m ready to eat. So I’ve set four aside, and
this is my serving suggestion, but obviously whatever you fancy. I am gonna add a nice
dollop of Greek yoghourt. Just to add a little extra protein, and some calcium there,
and then some blueberries. Now another alternative actually, instead of just putting
blueberries on top. You can even pop the blueberries
into the pancake mix. Obviously once you’ve finished blitzing, otherwise you’re just gonna
end up with blue pancakes. Um but it’s quite nice to have them, so their nice and warm from cooking. Raspberries come afterwards
like I’m doing today. And if you do have a sweet tooth like me, you can add a little drizzle of honey, maple syrup, date syrup
whatever it is you fancy. But like I said this recipe was going to be simple, the main
ingredients being egg and bananas. But if you’re not a fan of either then you can substitute,
I’ve already added in chia seeds, but you could
actually use a few more. You will need more moisture as a result, because they absorb a lot, and then you can take out the eggs. And the same goes with banana, you can add in some other
fruit but just make sure you play around with the consistency. And whatever you like basically, and they are a great recovery snack. Or you can even use them
as a bit of a pre-fuel. Certainly what I’m gonna do after this. I do need to go for a run I think, but enough of me talking it’s time for me to eat my pancakes. If you’ve enjoyed this, hit

  1. Eggs 🤢 all I can think of is Chicken Periods and cholesterol in the blood.. Pancakes dont need eggs to be a healthy pancake.

  2. I put some frozen blueberries on top while cooking. These are sweet enough they really don't need anything else! Great recipe, Heather!

  3. I also love blueberries on top, sometimes Ive heat it on the microwave to have some sort of jam, I liked the video: nice layout, chill explanation, great! Is made from athletes to athletes, so I can relate more (is not like a hight end chef trying to teach me how to do pancakes that I would failed day in day out!) Thank you guys, good job!✌️

  4. Love your recipe GTN! Pecans, blueberries and banana and my favorite garnishes. I just released recipe video on my channel of my favorite pancakes andI might have just one up'ed your recipe, (wink wink).

  5. Yoghurt not coming from greek. Its coming from TURKEY. All of greece people learns yoghurt from turkish neaighbourd!! C'mon GTN!!!

  6. I would love a video about intermittent fasting for triathletes and the diet during the feeding window. What do you think Heather?

  7. These are not healthy. Eggs are full of cholesterol which clogs arteries, the coconut oil is high in saturated fat, the dairy in yoghurt is inflammatory and full of hormones.

  8. Idk if there is some kind of British to American translation I'm missing here but everytime I try and make one of your recipes they never turn out. All I got from this was basically a water consistency. Any tips?
