Banana Pancakes

We love and quick, simple and nutrition breakfast and these banana pancakes are just that. They’re also great fun as you can decorate them however you like with your favourite  fruits, nuts and seeds. The mix will keep in the fridge for a couple of days too, so they are easy for weekday mornings too.

Makes 4 large pancakes

Ingredients

3/4 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup spelt Flour
1 tsp cinnamon
Pinch salt
1 tsp baking powder
2/3 cup almond milk
1 egg
1 tbsp Maple Syrup

To Cook 

Banana x 1 1/2 – sliced
Coconut Oil

To Serve 

Your favourite yoghurt
Fresh Fruit
Maple Syrup

Mix together all the dry ingredients in a medium size bowl. Add in the wet ingredients and whisk together until you have a smooth mixture.

Heat a little coconut oil (1 tsp) in a non-stick pan, once melted and your pan is hot, spoon in 3 tbsp of mixture into the pan. Once bubbles form on the outside, place sliced banana on the top and gently press into the pancake.

When the underside is becoming slightly brown, carefully flip over the pancake and cook until browned. Repeat with the remaining mixture.

Serve with maple syrup, fresh fruit, yoghurt and any other of your favourite toppings. I love to add in some walnuts as well.

NOTE – you can use gluten free oats and gluten free flour as well.

ENJOY!

Nourish Granola

Nourish Granola

Nourish Granola is a delicious blend of oats, seeds, cashews, currants and goji berries. Serve with almond or coconut milk or a milk of your choice. Also scrumptious served with coconut yoghurt and some fresh fruit.

Recipe for Nourish Granola

  • 1 1/4 cups rolled oats (I use gluten-free oats)
  • 1/2 cup cashew nuts
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 3 Tbsp raw honey
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/3 cup currants
  • 1/4 cup goji berries

Place seeds and nuts in a non-stick pan with the raw honey and coconut oil. Next, turn the heat onto lowest setting to allow the honey and oil to soften. Now combine the oats and gently mix together. After 2-3 minutes, as the honey has softened, tip onto a baking tray and spread out. The mixture at this stage should be coated. Add in the cinnamon and mix well. Leave in oven at 100 degrees for 15 minutes, turning half way through. Ideally you should not over-toast/heat the muesli, because you want to retain as much of the goodness of the ingredients as possible.
Add in the chia seeds, currants and goji berries. Finally, mix together well and then allow to cool.
​Enjoy…

Serve 6

Alternative – You could also mix all ingredients (except chia seeds, currents and goji berries and dehydrate it for 30 minutes, as this would give you a Raw Granola.
For a vegan alternative, you could also use maple syrup rather than the raw honey.
