Recipe: Rye flour pancakes with blueberry, pomegranate and ginger compote

Serves 4  (makes 12 small pancakes): 260 calories per serving 



  • 100g wholemeal rye flour 
  • Pinch of salt 
  • 2 free-range eggs
  • 150 ml almond milk 
  • 1 tbsp Extra virgin coconut oil 


  • 300g blueberries 
  • 1/2 tsp ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1/4 lime, juiced
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 100g pomegranate arils
  • 120g zero fat thick Greek yoghurt


  1. Place the flour and salt in a medium-sized bowl.
  2. Separate the eggs and add the yolks to the bowl then the almond milk and mix thoroughly.
  3. Place the egg whites in a medium-sized bowl and beat until they form soft peaks.  Add 1 tbsp of the egg white to the flour mixture and gently fold.  Add the remaining egg white and again, fold gently to retain the air.
  4. Heat a griddle or large heavy-based frying pan and melt half the coconut.  Once hot, add 1 tbsp of the batter at a time to the pan (you should be able to fit six pancakes per batch).
  5. Once air bubbles start to rise to the top of the pancakes (after about 1-2 minutes), flip them over and cook for a further minute until lightly browned then transfer to a plate.
  6. Repeat with another batch of six, then cover the plate with foil to keep the pancakes warm.
  7. To make the compote, place the blueberries, ginger, lime juice and honey into a small saucepan and bring to the boil.  Once boiled, turn down the heat to low and simmer for about 5 minutes until the blueberries are soft but not all burst.  Turn off the heat and stir through the pomegranate arils.
  8. Serve three pancaked per person with compote and 1 tsbp of Greek yoghurt.
