This is one of my favourite recipe's for breakfast and for any time of the day. A two ingredient pancake recipe is accessible, simple and quick to make. It is easy and you can also get so creative and put your own healthy twists by adding some fruits, nut butters and garnishes in the mix.
It's perfect if you're trying to cut back on gluten or wheat based products because it's completely free of flour and you can add agave or raw honey for an extra bit of healthy sweetness.
