Lockdown Day 28 • Pancakes Mankousheh • Pancakes Zaatar •
☆What Does this recipe mean to me ? ☆• It recalls the times where I created a School Campaign #thinkeatsucceed to increase student’s awareness about #healthyeating and initiate them to #cookingfromscratch using natural Ingredients
I made thousands of those pancakes at schools leaving classrooms filled with the smell of zaatar•Those times were purely beautiful and memorable: I visited more than 50 Private schools in 5 Years • During my visits I never thought that One day, students will no longer go to schools • But while preparing those pancakes during this #lockdown the smell of the zaatar and the flavors of those pancakes triggered my memories and acted as a reminder: #anythinginlifeispossible, better days are coming!
Here’s my “Mankoucheh Pancake” or Zaatar Pancake recipe • If you crave for mankouché and wish to enjoy a similar taste with fewer calories apply this easy recipe in your kitchen.
1 cup wholewheat flour (Or Oatmeal Flour)
