    2. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour with milk, mixed herbs, parmesan, baking powder with salt and pepper.
    3. Gently fold in the egg whites to make your batter.
    4. In a good non-stick pan, using a little spray oil, spoon ladles of the mixture to form pancakes. Cook for 2-3 minutes then flip and cook the other side for another minute or so. Repeat with the remaining mixture.
