It has really been a long time since I’ve written – I’ve been continuing to write recipes, I just haven’t had the time to upload for a while. From now on I am going to aim to upload once a week!
For the meantime, here are some delicious pancakes that I made a little while back. I’m not a huge banana fan, but I do love banana bread, and seeing as they are packed full of goodness I try and hide them in my food. These pancakes taste exactly like banana bread, and they’re really simple to make. Try them and let me know what you think!
50g ground oats (I whizz oats up in a food processor rather than buying them ground, but either are fine)
80g self-raising flour (any kind you want)
20g ground almonds
50g sugar (I used coconut sugar)
2 tbsp chia seeds (optional)
200ml milk (I used almond)
butter/oil to cook in
raspberries/flaked almonds/banana slices/chocolate chips/nut butter/maple syrup… The choice is yours!
1. Whizz up the banana and the egg in a food processor, or if you don’t have one, mash the banana and whisk in the egg.
2. Whisk in the ground oats, flour, ground almonds, sugar and chia seeds (if using).
3. Add the milk a little at a time while whisking, until the mixture reaches the consistency of thick cream.
4. Melt a little butter into a frying pan, and ladle/pour in some of the mixture. Cook over a medium heat until bubbles appear on the surface of the pancakes, and then flip and cook on the other side for about a minute.
5. Cover liberally with whatever toppings you fancy and enjoy!
