Banana Pancakes with Date Drizzle

10 minutes preparation, 10-15 minutes cooking time

Serves 2-4 depending on how hungry you are!

 

Banana Pancakes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of oat flour (or make own by processing oats in a blender or food processor)

  • ¼ cup of wholegrain flour of your choice (I recommend wholegrain/wholemeal)

  • 1-2 tsp baking powder (I recommend 2 tsps for a fluffier pancake)

  • Pinch of salt

  • 1 cup of almond milk

  • 1 ripe banana

  • Optional cinnamon to taste (I normally add 1/2 - 1 tsp cinnamon)

 

Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C (350f), prepare baking trays lined with baking paper.

  2. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl, add milk and mashed banana.  Mix until well combined and adjust liquid to get the desired thickness of batter.

  3. Scoop about ¼ cup of batter for each pancake onto the tray.

  4. Cook in oven for 10-12 minutes depending on oven, I cooked the pancakes pictured above with chickpea flour and they took 15 minutes.

 

Date Drizzle

Ingredients

  • 6-7 dates

  • 1 cup of Almond milk

  • 1/2 tsp of Cinnamon

  • Zest of 1 orange

 

Method

  1. Blend all ingredients until smooth, warm over stove if desired (a high powered blender will warm the ingredients up anyway using friction.)

  2. Stack pancakes, top with seasonal fruit and pour over date drizzle.  If you would like your drizzle to be runnier just add more liquid.
