Collagen Pancakes Two Ways

Collagen Pancakes Two Ways

If you’re looking for a breakfast that supports your beauty routine, give these collagen pancakes a go. We’ve put together two new recipes for you to try: An indulgent chocolate combination and a fresh, fruity variation.  

Both of these recipes contain Myvitamins Collagen Powder, one of our skincare essentials. Our collagen levels decline as we age, and this can result in a tired, ageing complexion. Myvitamins Collagen Powder contains hydrolysed collagen and is a convenient way to restore your natural collagen levels. 

Chocolate Pancakes with Chocolate Sauce and Strawberries  

Collagen Pancakes

What You Need  

For The Pancakes  

  • 50g self-raising flour  
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder  
  • 1 scoop of Myvitamins Collagen Powder (unflavoured)  
  • 50g wholemeal flour  
  • 2 small eggs separated  
  • 150ml almond milk  
  • 1 punnet of strawberries 

For The Chocolate Sauce 

  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder  
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup  
  • 150ml almond milk 

Method 

  1. Sift both of the flours into a bowl or wide jug. Add the collagen, egg yolks and a splash of milk and then stir into a thick paste. Add the remaining milk a little at a time so you don’t make lumps in the batter.  
  2. Whisk the egg whites until they stand up in stiff peaks, then fold them carefully into the batter – try not to squash out all of the air.  
  3. Heat a non-stick pan over a medium heat and pour in enough batter to make a pancake about 10 cm across. Cook for just under a minute until bubbles begin to pop on the surface and the edges are looking a little dry. Carefully turn the pancake over. Keep it warm whilst you make the remaining pancakes.  
  4. For the chocolate sauce, in a small pan, mix the cocoa powder, maple syrup and almond milk over a medium heat until smooth and warmed through. 
  5. Now serve. Stack up your pancakes, scatter over your strawberries and drizzle over the chocolate sauce. Enjoy!
