IMG_7569

Its Pancake day (Shrove Tuesday) in the UK. The day before Lent begins, when traditionally, eggs, milk and sugar were used up before the 40-day Lenten fast…by making Pancakes.

Today I decided to make American-style Pancakes however…., and chocolate ones at that. With strawberry compote, banana, toasted almonds and home made nutella.

The Pancakes are made with Buckwheat flour, almond milk and honey, so they are gluten, refined sugar and dairy free!

But still delicious! The boy had a huge chocolate-y grin after eating his!!
