To celebrate Pancake Day, we are sharing a nut free pancake recipe from Matthews Friends.

Matthews Friends is a charity and clinic that are located on the Young Epilepsy campus and specialise in Ketogenic dietary therapies for epilepsy.

This recipe has been given the ‘tried and tested’ stamp, meaning the recipe has been through the keto kitchen and tested by one of the chefs at Matthews Friends to make sure that it works and is suitable for you to try at home.

To make your tasty nut free pancake, please follow the steps below:

  • 20g FiberFlour –
  • 29g Eggs

  • 34g Double cream - Morrison’s
  • 2g Blueberries

  • Cut the fruit and reserve
  • Reserve 20g of the cream
  • Beat together the egg, 14g cream and 20mls of cold water
