These low calorie pancakes use coconut oil to keep them healthy and yummy!

Cook Lucy Bee admits she has a slight addiction to pancakes but thankfully her addiction is a healthy one! There are SO many different ways to make pancakes but Lucy likes using either quinoa flakes, buckwheat flour (despite the name this actually a fruit seed and is gluten-free) or oats.
