BANANA BLUEBERRY PANCAKES

If Sunday mornings aren’t made for pancakes, I don’t quite know what is. This particularly delicious stack is drizzled with the sweetest, ooziest, stickiest blueberry sauce. Just how I like ’em._DSC2717If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know the routine: post-run pancakes, pretty much every weekend. Whilst some are addicted to their smoothie bowls and avo-toast (yes, I’m probably also included in this particular ‘some’) for me, pancakes are where it’s at._DSC2767And the best part? These are wholesome, good-for-you, energy boosting pancakes, that come with two of your five a day. Breakfast, ladies and gentlemen, is served._DSC2731

INGREDIENTS – PANCAKES

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 egg
  • 75ml milk of choice
  • 50g wholemeal flour or oat flour
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder

INGREDIENTS – BLUEBERRY SAUCE

  • 75-100g fresh or frozen blueberries (depends how fruity you like your pancakes)
  • 2 tbsp honey or maple syrup

METHOD – PANCAKES

  1. Grab a frying pan, scoop in the coconut oil, and set over a medium flame, leaving the oil to melt.
  2. Meanwhile, mash the banana into a medium bowl, crack in the egg, pour in the milk and melted coconut oil from the pan. Whisk with a fork to combine.
  3. Now add in the dry ingredients, stir once again to banish any disastrous lumps and the batter is ready.
  4. Pour desired amount into hot pan (due to the robust nature of the batter, this recipe can make both small and large pancakes, I go for 2-3 tbsp per pancake). Flip once the surface is covered in little bubbles. Will take about 2 mins per side.
  5. Eat straight away or keep warm in the oven until ready. Top with blueberry sauce, maybe even dollop of greek yogurt too, then devour.

METHOD – BLUEBERRY SAUCE

  1. Pour the fresh or frozen blueberries along with the honey or maple into a small saucepan.
  2. Cook over a medium flame for about 5-10 mins, stirring regularly until the blueberries have a created a thick, sticky syrup and are all wrinkly. Yum.
