Pancakes are a favourite in many households, yet many pancake recipes aren’t suitable to include in your healthy eating plan because they are full of high-calorie, low-nutrition ingredients like cream, butter and refined sugars and flours.
This recipe is a little different because it contains spinach – one of the best vegetables to include in your diet while you’re trying to lose pregnancy weight.
Spinach is very low in calories but high in fibre, folate, iron, magnesium and vitamin C, and while your’e probably accustomed to eating baby spinach in your salads or adding a handful to your smoothies, you can also make delicious and nutritious pancakes with them!


  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 cup of baby spinach leaves
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 and a quarter cups of wholemeal flour
  • 30 grams walnuts
  •  2 teaspoons baking powder
  • A dash of sea salt
  • A pinch of cinnamon
  • 100 grams reduced fat ricotta


  • Blend together the spinach, banana, almond milk, and one tablespoon of honey, then add the egg and stir to combine.
  • In another bowl mix together the cinnamon, flour, baking powder and salt, then add to the wet mixture, mixing with a spoon to combine.
  • Warm a flat, non stick fry pan over medium heat, add the coconut oil and heat until it becomes liquid.
  • Using a large tablespoon, spoon the batter into the pan and cook until the edges start to come away and the top of the pancake starts to form small bubbles.
  • Flip the pancake and cook on the other side, and repeat the process until all the batter is used.
  • To serve, layer the pancakes with a few walnuts and blobs of ricotta between them, topped with a dash of honey.
