This Shrove Tuesday we have the perfect Gluten-free and Dairy-free pancake recipe to warm you up on a frosty February morning. This winning recipe doubles up as a Shrove Tuesday treat, AND will win you points on Valentine’s Day as well!

We know that one of the hardest things about being on an Elimination Diet is going gluten-free or dairy-free.  It’s easy to feel like you’re missing out or denying yourself treats on important holidays and festivals.  This can be just as damaging to your mood and mental wellbeing.

So we’ve perfected pancakes that are free from gluten, grains, soy, and refined sugar, but are full of protein, good fat, fibre and bursting with flavour, to make you smile from the inside out.

Bear in mind, this recipe is not suitable if you have a nut allergy.
