These pancakes are really versatile; you could add cinnamon to the batter for a sweeter pancake, and the topping possibilities are endless! Try sliced fruit with a drizzle of honey or a dollop of Greek-style yogurt, peanut butter, lemon juice with a sprinkle of sugar or go savoury with grilled mushrooms & tomatoes.

So thinking about power-pack pancakes ...
Eggs are an excellent source of protein, vitamins and minerals. Protein is essential for building and repairing our bodies.
Cottage cheese is an excellent source of protein, and has less calories than other types of cheese.
Oats provide starchy carbohydrate, which gives us slow-release energy, and they are also a good source of fibre.

A traffic light system is used on nutrition labels to make it easier to see which foods and drinks are lower in calories, fat, sugar and salt. Try and choose more ‘greens’ and ‘ambers’ and fewer ‘reds’, and stick to smaller portions of ‘reds’.
Just because a recipe or a food has a red traffic light doesn’t mean you shouldn’t eat it. Understanding why a food or recipe might have a red light can be helpful. For example oily fish is high in total fat and so any recipe containing oily fish is likely to be ‘red’ for fat. But it is recommended that we eat oily fish at least once a week because the type of fat it contains is beneficial for our health.
% Reference Intakes are also shown. Reference Intakes are guidelines about the approximate amount of particular nutrients and energy required for a healthy diet (based on an average-sized woman doing an average amount of physical activity). Most children will require less than these Reference Intakes. The contribution of one serving of a food or drink to the Reference Intake for each nutrient is expressed as a percentage.
