Batter give them a try

MOST POPULAR

Pancake Day (or Shrove Tuesday) is the one day, more so than Christmas Day, when you must eat ALL THE FOOD. You do this to clear out your cupboards before that trying time known as Lent.

Eating ALL THE FOOD does not mean you have to eat unhealthy food. Here The Detox Kitchen has shared its gluten-free pancake recipe and some sweet topping ideas to go with that aren't entirely terrible for your waistline (disclaimer: of course, it does depend on the number of pancakes you devour).
