Oat, Flaxseed & Banana Pancakes With Berry Jam...


Yummy pancakes. Not just for pancake day!!


We love pancakes here. We have been making them all week. Today I have a healthy pancake recipe from Linwoods to share with you. 


Ingredients:

For the pancakes -

  • 6 tablespoons rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons Linwoods Flaxseeds
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tablespoons almond milk
  • 1/4 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

Get making!

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!
