This dish can be eaten either as a dessert or a spoon breakfast. Whatever takes your fancy.
Flour is surprisingly low in fat and high in energy and protein. This is something a lot of people might not or would not know unless they studied it in detail. So these pancakes are full of great energy and carbs to give you bucket loads of energy for the day ahead.
And adding Berries to them makes this even better as mixed berries and fruit are the healthiest foods you can eat.
Mixed Berries help protect our cells and DNA from potential diseases and are high in anti-oxidants. They are also high in fibre and help a healthy digestion system whilst containing many vital vitamins such as K and C.
The most important benefit for athletes especially and those who exercise is they keep our arteries healthy meaning more healthy oxygen is able to be absorbed. Furthermore, they also help reduce inflammation.
The addition of the honey to help caremalize the fruits is of great benefit. Honey has numerous health benefits. Honey boosts your memory and helps preserve beautiful and healthy skin. It allegedly also helps with seasonal allergies.
Honey can improve cholesterol and can have many benefits to help a healthy heart.
