These sweetcorn protein pancakes are a real favourite of The Urban Kitchen customers during the bespoke nutrition and meal delivery days. They are fluffy, crisp and the chipotle paste adds another level of flavour. Serve with guacamole as a snack or with a spinach, tomato and avocado salad for a light supper. Great with eggs and bacon for an extra special brunch, perhaps for Mother's Day?
