These pancakes are ideal for adding a bit of fuel for exercise, without them lying heavy on the stomach. This is because they are prepared using very little fat. If you are planning a long or intensive training session, it is recommended that you add some sugar using agave syrup, honey, jam, syrup, brown sugar or fresh fruit as a topping.
- 250g (wholemeal) flour
- 3 eggs
- 5 dl semi-skimmed milk
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 sachet vanilla sugar
- 2 tbsp liquid margarine
- a pinch of salt
- Beat the eggs with the flour
- Pour the milk into the mixture and beat well until you have a smooth liquid.
- Add salt, sugar, vanilla sugar, butter or oil and beat again thoroughly (no lumps)
- Cover and leave to rest at room temperature for an hour
- Fry the pancakes
Variations such as buckwheat flour, oatmeal and spelt flour each have their own flavours but are also healthy and certainly worth trying!
If you’d rather eat pancakes afterwards, you can add more egg white. This is not only tasty but also makes them ideal as a recuperative meal after exercise. The right nutrition can ensure that your muscles recover more quickly. In order to replenish your fuel reserves, you must add honey, jam, syrup or fresh fruit.
