This recipe is a fun way to add greens to your breakfast without eating leaves. These pancakes are a great mix of sweet and savoury, while the chickpeas add a lovely texture and a dose of protein.



For the pancakes

  • 75g self-raising flour
  • 2 tbsp agave nectar
  • 5g Your Superfoods super greens powder
  • 150ml almond milk
  • 1 heaped tbsp desiccated coconut
  • ¼ tsp egg replacer powder

For the chickpeas

  • 400g tin chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 medium shallot, finely chopped
  • 2 fat garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1 tsp Italian herb seasoning
  • ½ vegetable stock cube
  • 2 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 1 large red chilli pepper, finely chopped (optional)
  • 1 tbsp coconut or soy yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp toasted pumpkin seeds


  1. Heat a small splash of water in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and shallots and cook for 2-3 minutes until soft. Add the tomato puree, herb seasoning, chilli, vegetable stock cube and around 200ml of water. Bring to the boil then turn the heat down to a simmer and cook for around 20 minutes or until most of the liquid evaporates, and the sauce thickens.
  2. In the meantime add all the ingredients for the pancakes except the egg replacer powder into a food processor or high-speed blender and blitz until smooth. Transfer to a bowl then add the egg replacer powder and stir until well incorporated.
  3. Heat a non-stick frying pan and add around three tablespoons of batter to the pan. Once bubbles start to form, flip the pancakes over and cook for 2-3 minutes or until cooked. Repeat with the remaining mixture.
  4. Once the tomato sauce thickens, add the chickpeas and the thyme. Cook still on a simmer for around 5 minutes or until the chickpeas are hot. Take off the heat then serve with the pancakes and a dollop of yoghurt. Sprinkle with toasted pumpkin seeds if you desire.
