How about these for a new way of upping your omega 3 and phyto-oestrogen levels? Most women especially over 40 would benefit from more of these two foods, so have a go at these. They make a sort of batter that you then quickly fry or griddle to make American-style pancakes. Don’t worry if your first batch isn’t perfect, the joy is to keep trying them until you get it just to suit your taste.
To make a small amount just for you, first mix 2 large eggs and about 50ml soya milk. Then add a tablespoon of ground flaxseeds (use this as soon as it is ground otherwise it’ll oxidise and lose it’s goodness – try to get it as fine as possible), 2 tablespoons of ground almonds, a teaspoon of mixed spice, a pinch of salt and either 2 tablespoons of Zylosweet (Xylitol) or a splash of agave syrup to sweeten. Mix together and then mix well with the egg/soya mix. Put covered in the fridge for a couple of hours or overnight.
When ready to cook them, add another 50ml soya milk (or more if it needs it) and half a teaspoon of baking powder. Then drop blobs of the mix onto a hot, oiled pan or griddle and flip over to brown both sides. Enjoy with a little drizzle of agave syrup, some Pure spread or a little St Dalfour or Bonne Maman jam. Yum. Now, that’s worth waking up for – and very good for you too.
