#CookBlogShare 2018 Week 7 - Plus 4 Sweet Treats for Shrove Tuesday

Hello lovely foodies and welcome to week 7 of #CookBlogShare!

How are you all? It has been a manic few weeks at work but thankfully it is half term which gives us all a bit of much needed time out!

Not only is it half term this week, but there are also not one, not two but three opportunities to have a foodie celebration. Today is Shrove Tuesday where we all enjoy pancakes, followed by Valentine's Day tomorrow and finally the week ends with the Chinese new year! What a week of foodie treats.

Last week Eb from Easy Peasy Foodie shared 4 romantic recipes so I thought that I would follow that with four deliciously sweet treats for pancake day. But I know that not everyone likes pancakes so I have chosen two pancake recipes and two sweet treats that, in my opinion, would be just as good!

In the past I have shared many our favourite pancake recipes. This year I will be making some traditional pancakes along with some healthier, free from versions. Here is a taste of some of the pancake recipes that I will be choosing from this year. 

If you are wanting to have some slimming friendly pancake then these are perfect. These Syn Free, Gluten Free Pancakes contain just eggs, sweetener and flavoured essence!

One of my favourites have to be these Blueberry and Coconut Pancakes that are healthy and they even have added linseed for extra goodness.

My Gluten Free and Dairy Free Pancakes are made using just four ingredients, bananas, eggs, sweetener and vanilla essence. Easy, quick and healthy!

If you are looking for an easy cheat check out my Gluten Free Raspberry Cheesecake Pancakes that use Genius Scotch pancakes but with mascarpone cheese, cream cheese and fresh strawberries and classic dessert has been transformed!

Now onto the CookBlogShare recipes...

First up are these Pancakes with Mascarpone Cream and Cranberry Compote from Jo's Kitchen Larder. Mascarpone is a favourite of mine so I know that these would be an instant hit!

Next up is a fantastic selection of 'Free From' Pancakes that have been put together by the lovely Rebecca at Glutarama. This post will certainly give you plenty of choice for free from pancakes!

If you do not want pancakes but waffles take your fancy then check out these healthy Red Velvet Waffles that are gluten free, high protein and low in fat from Looney for Food. Forget red food colouring, natural red colour from beetroot makes these a deliciously healthy alternative!

Last but not least is this Banana Split Brownie Pizza from Poinsettia Drive. I have to admit that I LOVE Pampered Chef products and was so disappointed when they stopped trading in the UK. This recipe uses the baking stone which is my go to piece of bakeware. This is a sweet treat that will not disappoint!

I have given you so many sweet ideas ready for pancake day. What is your favourite go to pancake treat?
