These pancakes are so very simple and yummy. I threw them together one night when I hadn't prepared anything for dinner and the kids were going crazy. Pancakes themselves are just flour and milk, so I upped the protein content of these with an egg and some ricotta, which helped me feel ok about feeding the kids pancakes for dinner! They were devoured and made the little tummies in our home very happy.
These pancakes are perfect for breakfast or a snack too, have them anyway you like.
Last night I had 3 punnets of strawberries in my fridge, and 500gm of ricotta. Both were almost about ready to go off. So what did I do? Made a strawberry cheescake slice of course! This recipe is so yummy, and I gained inspiration for it from Wholefood Simply. If you haven't checked out Wholefood Simply yet, go do it now!
1 cup macadamia's
8 large juicy medjool dates
Strawberry cheesecake layer:
250gm fresh strawberries
250gm fresh ricotta
1 cup coconut flakes
1 to 2 tbsp maple syrup - you may not need this if your strawberries are very sweet
1 tsp vanilla essence
In your thermomix (or food processor) place the macadamia's and dates. Process for 10 seconds on speed 6. This left some chunky nut pieces, so if you want it smoother keep processing to your desired consistency. Spread this mixture over the base of a lined slice tray and pop it in the freezer to set whilst you make the top layer.
For the top strawberry layer, place all of the ingredients into your thermomix. Blend for 10 seconds on speed 5. Again this left some texture in the mixture, so if you want it very smooth just keep processing until you get it how you want it. Spread this layer over the base, and pop back into the freezer for at least 1 hour to set.
Slice and enjoy :)
This is so yummy and I hope you enjoy it too xx
