Ethan's Easy Pancakes with Indigo Herbs! Review & Giveaway


So Pancakes Day is coming up and this year Pancakes Day seem to have fallen on the same day as Ethan’s 6th Birthday!! You’ll never guess what he’ll be having for breakfast!! Pancakes!! Yummy Yummy Pancakes!

When Indigo Herbs got in touch with us to see if we want to review their Organic Dark Maple Syrup and Organic Yacon Syrup, I instantly responded to them: Yes please!

Ethan & Evelyn loves pancakes and I have been looking for something that is more heathy for them both than the average Golden Syrup. So this was a great opportunity to make his breakfast a lot more healthy than the average pancakes.

Over the weekend, I got Ethan to do the pancake mix. I did the frying of the pancakes with the almighty tossing and turning it into the air. The kids were cheering besides me. It was great fun!

Thereafter, we tasted the pancakes with variety of fruits with Organic Dark Maple Syrup and Organic Yacon Syrup squeezed over all over on top!

But first! Here is Ethan’s Easy Pancake Recipe I’d like to share with you.

Ethan's Easy Pancake Mix recipe

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Serving Size: 6 medium pancakes

Ethan's Easy Pancake Mix recipe


  • 2 cup of plain flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • butter for frying the pancakes with


  • Place all ingredients into a large bowl.
  • Whisk until you have a fairly medium-thick mix.
  • Melt a small knob of butter in a non-stick pan and turn heat down to middle heat.
  • Pour half a cup of the mix onto the centre of the pan.
  • Tilt the pan in a circular motion to spread out the mix out thinly. It will become thick and lumpy if it is just leave it in the middle of the pan.
  • Wait for one side of the pancake to heat up to light-medium brown then with a spatular turn it over to cook the other side. Or for those who are a little more confident - you can just toss it in the air and flip the uncooked side down.
  • Serve hot with fresh fruits and Indigo Herbs Organic Dark Maple Syrup and Organic Yacon Syrup.

School Packed Lunch Tips: The great thing about pancakes is that you can freeze them in the freezer and take them out the night before to be defrosted and have them ready for the kids school packed lunch the very next morning!

Our Verdict!

I asked the kids for their verdict: Ten out of Ten. Ten being the Best.

Evelyn’s verdict on the Organic Yacon Syrup was “Ten!” – well she shown one of her hand up in the air as the other was too busy holding onto the fork eating pancakes! lol!

Ethan’s verdict on the Organic Dark Maple Syrup was “100 out of 10!!” Hahaha

He really really love this!

    We love real maple syrup on our pancakes. But we’re Canadian so it’s sort of a requirement 🙂 #FabFridayPos

    I’m looking forward to pancake this year as my boy is now old enough to join in the fun. But a healthier alternative would be amazing! Thanks for sharing #FabFridayPost

    I love pancakes! Always looking to experiment with new toppings but you can never go wrong with crispy bacon and lashings of maple syrup.

    Love maple, of course, but yacon syrup is new to me — would love to try!

    I have never tried Yacon but would love to. The idea of freezing pancakes is great too perfect for busy mornings instead of cooking fresh

    We make pancakes most weekends as we have cut out a lot of meat so no more bacon or sausage sandwiches!
    Love maple syrup but it’s so expensive!

    Maple syrup is low FODMAP so it’s always been one of my go-to sweeteners since I have to follow a low FODMAP diet. I’m glad your kids enjoyed their syrupy breakfast!
