Cheese & Sweetcorn Pancakes with Bacon & Avocado

These savoury pancakes are great for celebrating Shrove Tuesday without the guilt of eating unhealthily. Don’t get me wrong, sweet pancakes don’t have to be unhealthy either. Myself and Neil regularly enjoy banana and peanut butter pancakes for breakfast on a rest day. However, it’s
