You only need 5 ingredients for these delicious pancakes. They are made with whole wheat for that extra flavor, and of course for the extra fibers! For the protein, I added quark, which is a very fresh cheese, similar to cottage cheese. However, you usually eat it like you would greek yoghurt, as part of breakfast with some granola and fresh fruit for example. It’s mostly popular in Western-Europe, so if you cannot find it, you can replace it with greek yoghurt or any kind of unsalted cottage cheese. Lastly, the pancakes are flavored with organic herbal tea! The one I used, Hug in a Cup from Natural Temptation, is a mix of green tea (35%), cinnamon (20%), cardamom (10%), ginger (10%), fennel seeds (10%), cloves (5%), black pepper (5%) and star anise (5%).

As you might have notices, I am currently on a cauliflower kick! A little while ago I already made this cheesy queso cauliflower dip, and now I have another super delicious recipe with cauliflower for you: sweet & fluffy cauliflower pancakes!

The trick is to lightly steam the cauliflower, and to make sure it is completely smooth before adding it to the batter.
Hi guys! I am so sorry for the long absence!! Life just got in the way, and I decided I needed to focus on some other things than the blog for a while. But now, 1.5 years later, I feel soooo ready to get back into blogging again! I didn’t stop cooking in those 1.5 years, but I did stop photographing and writing about my food. A lot has happened, and I talk a bit more in depth about what I did exactly on my Instagram and Facebook pages, if you would like to know the nitty gritty of what I have been up to. How have you all been??
Oh my god guys, I just got my thesis grade back and I got an A-!!!!! I’m so happy!! I wrote my bachelor thesis on the KNMI NO2-sonde that I worked with during my internship there, and how to improve it etc. Very interesting, but I can imagine you guys don’t really care about that as you are probably here for the food 😉
I am so happy! It has finally become spring here in the Netherlands, and with temperatures of 15 to 20 degrees Celcius you can even call that warm haha. So in line with the weather, I had to make something that was spring-like, and since it is Sunday, and I wanted to have a nice breakfast, I made pancakes! Loving the #pancakesunday trend.
If you sometimes have problems with getting enough veggies in on a day – like me – these pumpkin pancakes may be a great addition to your diet. They are rich in nutrients and super yummy! Plus they have a beautiful and completely natural orange colour. I love topping them with a little dollop of coconut yoghurt and some cinnamon or some banana coins and blueberries.
