For the pancakes:
200g plain wholemeal flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
125g fat-free Greek-style yoghurt
75g blueberries
115ml skimmed milk
1 egg
2 tbsp agave nectar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
To serve (optional)
fresh fruit and honey


Mix all the pancake ingredients together in a mixing bowl until well combined (the batter will be thick). Leave to stand for 10 minutes.

Heat a skillet or pancake pan over a medium to high heat until nearly smoking. For each pancake, spoon around 3 generous tablespoons of the mixture into the hot pan, gently spreading it out to about 8cm in diameter (each pancake will be thick). Leave it to cook for 3-4 minutes on one side. Once you start seeing bubbles appear on the surface and the underside is golden, it’s ready to flip. Carefully turn the pancake over and cook the other side for another 3-4 minutes until golden brown.

Transfer the cooked pancake to a plate, cover with foil and keep warm, while you cook the remaining pancakes in the same way (to make 8 in total).

Serve the pancakes on their own or, if you like, serve with fresh fruit and a drizzle of honey.
