Nutritionist Laura Holland of shows you how to power up your pancakes


Raw Blueberry Chia Jam

Delicious and unbelievably nutritious. The chia seeds are rich in omega 3, which boosts your metabolism, while the blueberries are filled with antioxidants.

2 cups frozen blueberries
2 tablespoons raw honey
2 tablespoons chia seeds
2 teaspoons vanilla paste (optional)

Let the blueberries thaw out a little then combine everything in the food processor and blitz till well combined.  Transfer to a glass jar and let set in the fridge. The chia will soon swell up and give it that jam-like texture, which you can then spread all over those pancakes.



Almond Butter And Banana

Quick and easy, yet super healthy and tasty.  Almond butter, especially if you find raw almond butter, is rich in essential fatty acids and magnesium, which relaxes muscles and can help alleviate PMS.  And bananas, a post-workout favourite, are packed with potassium. 

1 banana
1 tsp almond butter
1 tbsp ground almonds

Spread the pancakes with the almond butter, top with sliced banana and an extra tablespoon of ground almonds.


Raw Chocolate And Hazelnut Spread

This raw chocolate spread is pure indulgence, but thanks to the raw cacao it also comes with a hit of antioxidants, magnesium and iron.

1 cup raw hazelnuts
2 tbsp raw cacao powder
2 tbsp raw honey
1/2 cup water

Grind hazelnuts to a fine powder in a food processor and then add raw cacao powder honey and a little water.  Blend until you have a thick creamy consistency (add water as needed).  Spread all over your pancakes and top with raw cacao nibs and a few extra hazelnuts for good measure.


Coconut And Goji Berry

Coconut is known for stimulating the thyroid and boosting your metabolism, while those goji berries are high in vitamin A, iron and fibre.

1 tsp organic raw coconut butter
1 tbsp goji berries
2 tbsp freshly shredded coconut

Spread your pancakes with the coconut butter, sprinkle the goji berries on top, followed by the freshly shredded coconut.
