This simple recipe takes 5 minutes to prepare and is gluten, dairy and refined sugar free!

INGREDIENTS-

  • 50 grams of vanilla protein powder ( I use Vega vanilla clean protein)
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 150 ml coconut water/almond milk
  • 50 grams oats (I used Flahavans jumbo organic oats)
  • 2 over ripe bananas
  • Coconut oil to cook
  • Choice of toppings – Berries, bee pollen, nuts and seeds, maple syrup, bananas, coconut/Greek yoghurt, cacao nibs or anything that takes your fancy!

METHOD

  • Place the oats in a blender and blend into a flour. Next place all the remaining ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth, you may have to add more liquid due to the size of your bananas.
  • Place some coconut oil in a non-stick pan on a medium to high heat.
  • Next place a ladle full of batter in the pan (I like to do a few small pancakes), turn the heat down and place a lid over the top to ensure the middle of the pancake cooks through.
  • Once the edges start to look dry and bubbles appear, it’s time to flip the pancake. Cook for a further minute and remove from pan.
  • Top with all your favourite toppings and enjoy!
