For me, for years I thought I cant eat pancakes because they all included some kind of butter, margarine or oil along with sugar... and a lot of it..

But then a few years ago I've realised its more then possible to make healthy pancakes and more then being healthier they are actually more delicious and creative!

So now you wont catch me saying no to a good healthy pancake, and guess what, I never feel guilty about it!

Pancakes are defiantly one of the best cozy and romantic foods I know, and here is a beautiful colourful version to celebrate it!

ohh yeah.. and its Vegan, Gluten Free, Oil Free and Sugar Free!

So pick your favourite superfood from the list in the full guide of "COLOURING YOUR FOOD WITH SUPERFOODS" and lets begin!

For the pancakes:

  • 100g Old Fashion Rolled Oat Flour

  • 1 Ripe Big Banana, mashed

  • 230ml Soy Milk or any other milk you like

  • 1 Tbsp ground flax seeds mixed with 2.5 tbsp water and devolved for 10 minutes (as an egg replacement)

  • 1 Tsp Baking Powder

  • Pinch of Himalayan salt (or any other high quality salt)

  • 3 Tbspoon of any Superfood Powder you like (colorful or only one color)

Sauce on top:

  • 100g Yogurt or coconut yogurt (can be substitute with goat yogurt or any other vegan yogurts)

  • 1/2 Tsp of any Superfood Powder that you like (or multiple)


  • Frozen Berries

  • Buckinis (activated buckwheat)

  • Shredded coconut


Add all ingredients for the pancakes, except the superfood powders, into a big bowl.

Mix ingredients all together until well combined, and sit aside for 30 minutes.

If you would like to make pancakes in only one color you can add the superfood powder into the big bowl and mix well.

If you want to make colourful pancake, divide the mixture into 3 bowls, and add 1 tbspoon of superfood powder into each bowl. different colour into each bowl. mix well.

Preheat your pan, then add half a teaspoon of coconut oil and spread it evenly on the pan (if your pan is really good you wont need oil)

Pour the pancake mixture into the pan in the desired size (you can measure with tablespoons so you will have same size pancakes)

Wait 1-2 minutes, until bubbles form, then flip it and wait another minute or 2 then transfer to a plate.

using the same bowls from before, divide the yogurt or coconut yogurt into each bowl evenly, and add to each bowl about 1/4 tsp of powder, you can use the same colours you used before.

(if you don’t use the same colours you used before its better to use different bowls so the colours doesn’t mix)

you can now arrange you pancake stack according to colours and how many pancakes on each plate (maybe its your special day and you deserve to get the whole of them on one stack!)

you can play around and be creative with the order making sure you lay one pancake and one yogurt layer at a time.

then you can pour the left overs of the yogurt sauce on the top and decorate with berries buckinis and coconut shreds.

if you’re really a perfectionist you can quickly cook in a small pot few berries with a tiny bit of water until they become like a berry sauce and pour that over the top too!
