SweetPea Pantry Pancakes & Competition

With Shrove Tuesday on the horizon (9th of February) and a dinner consisting of pancakes to look forward to on that day we were eager to review the SweetPea Pantry pancake mix and get some practise in before hand.  If you are unfamiliar with the brand we would definitely recommend them.


We have made pancakes in the past but they have never turned out particularly well, however these pancakes were thick and tasty, easy to prepare just adding two eggs and milk to the wholesome mix.  They turned out perfectly each and every time, the only reason I did not get a picture of a stack of them together was because they were too appetising to wait, we all wanted to eat them warm straight out of the pan!

The mix is full of healthy ingredients SweetPea Pantry all about getting more goodness they do this with the protein-rich buckwheat and quinoa flours; bringing you vitamins, calcium and iron, Omega-3 loaded, heart-friendly flaxseed and tiny teff grains for fibre, calcium, iron and vitamin C.  If you are worried about what you eat and like looking for healthier alternatives then SweetPea Pantry is a great place to focus your attentions.

We were a bit naughty and sprinkled sugar on top along with the lemon juice and sultana’s, we would do that normally so at least the pancake itself was healthier than ones we would usually eat, so I didn’t feel quite as sinful!  If you wanted to though you could of course continue with the healthy theme and top with fruit and yoghurt possibly with a drizzle of honey. 

My youngest gives the pancake mix a thumbs up seal of approval.


I would definitely buy this mix again as I would love to try savoury pancakes next time topping them with ham and melted cheese would make a tempting meal for everyone in the family.  Having had such a successful experience with this mix I think it will be difficult to return to our usual (very hit and miss) approach to pancake making!  I think it’s worth spending that bit more (£4.99) for a 100% natural product that creates pancakes that everyone will enjoy with less of the fuss of weighing out ingredients in the process.

SweetPea Pantry is ideal to visit if you want to start baking with your children but you want to do it as simply as possible.  Baking with children can be quite stressful as your trying to get them to measure out the ingredients they end up tipping the whole bag of flour in by mistake or it ends up all over the floor… so anything that makes it a tad easier can only be a good thing. 

You can either buy the products direct from their website or pick them up at Ocado or M&S.  I would like to try the biscuits next so feel an order coming on but before you rush off to do the same please enter my competition first.  I have a lovely selection of SweetPea Pantry products to giveaway to one lucky winner, if you fancy getting your hands on a Grainy Brainy Pancake Mix, Super Oat Flapjack Mix, Playful Pizza Dough Mix and Chocolate Giggles & Ginger Giggles Biscuit Mixes the please fill out the form below by the 24th of February.
