SEEN does love a pancake, but they can be heavy and dripping with all manner of rich accompaniments. Luckily SEEN has learned that Farmacy have created pancakes that are delicious and good for you. Yes, you heard that right. This being Notting Hill’s Farmacy, they look luxurious too, embellished with flowers.

Their House Pancakes are served with fresh fruit, coconut ‘yoghurt’, chia berry jam and maple syrup. They are gluten-free, devoid of dairy and sans sugar, additives, preservatives or stabilisers. Never has the abstinence of Lent looked so easy with such a healthful alternative to start you off.
