I haven’t invented this recipe myself, but it can be found all over YouTube and Google, and I have no idea who deserves the credit, there are loads of people to chose from.
These pancakes are genius for people like us, who avoid fat and sugar, but still want junk food. They feel like junk food without being it, they are full of good nutrients and taste great!
Makes 10-12 small pancakes
- 350 ml (gluten free) oat flour (I processed oats in the food processor to flour consistency)
- 250 ml vegan milk
- 1 large ripe banana
- Optional: vanilla extract/ vanilla sugar and cinnamon
This is how you do it:
- Put all the ingredients in a blender or food processor, and process until you have a smooth batter. It should be runny enough to be poured, but not too soupy.
- I pour the batter into a jug, and pour it straight into the frying pan, very practical.
- Heat up a non-stick frying pan, and fry small pancakes on medium heat. Turn them over when bubbles start to appear, and the surface has started to set.
Oh, and I mustn’t forget about the sauces! Blueberry sauce is my favourite while other people might prefer chocolate. Both are delicious, and ridiculously easy to make.
- Defrost ½ bag of frozen blueberries (fresh berries don’t work as well so use frozen).
- Sweeten with maple or date syrup and a few spoonfuls of coconut sugar, and perhaps a little vanilla. You can’t really fail if you add a little at a time and taste it.
- I don’t have any measurements as this is exactly how we make it, so I haven’t measured how much I use.
- Pit 6-7 dates and add them to a food processor with a little vanilla and 1 large tbs of cocoa powder.
- Add a little water, and start the machine whilst you’re adding more water, a little at a time until you reach the consistency you prefer.
- This one sounds a bit strange, but it’s really good, and goes well with ice cream too.
