Oat, Flax & Banana Pancakes

Recipe by SpamellaB

Ingredients

    For the pancakes:
  • 6 tablespoons rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons Milled Organic Flaxseed
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tablespoons almond milk
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • Coconut oil, for frying
    For the chia berry jam:
  • 1 cup frozen berries
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds
    To decorate:
  • Coconut yogurt, coconut chips and homemade chia jam

Instructions

  1. First make the chia jam: place the berries in a small pan with a dash of water. Bring to the boil then simmer for a few minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the maple syrup/honey and chia seeds. Set aside for at least 30 minutes (any longer, place in a container and keep in a container in the fridge for up to 1 week).
  2. Place the pancake ingredients into a blender and whizz up until smooth. The mixture should be a slightly thick batter (not too runny or too thick).
  3. Heat a little coconut oil in a non-stick pan, then add about 2 tablespoons of mixture per pancake. Use a spoon to carefully shape into a circle.
  4. Cook for 3-4 minutes on a low heat until the surface is bubble and no longer wet. Carefully flip over and cook for a further few minutes, then transfer to a plate and keep warm while you cook the rest of the pancakes in the same way (cook a few at a time depending on how confident you are/how big your pan is)!
  5. Now stack up and top with the berry jam, some coconut yogurt and coconut flakes. Tuck in straight away!
