Oat banana flaxseed pancakes are a great way to increase our intake of nutrients – in a tasty and balanced way. This recipe is also so simple that I often make it for our breakfast even mid- week. It’s no fuzz, cooks easily and I know that I will get three empty plates and I love knowing that I can send my girls into school with a tummy full of goodness! The oats and flaxeeds are mixed with eggs and some milk (I use almond but you could use any milk you want) and to get some sweetness into the pancakes I blend in half a banana. This makes the base recipe and from there you can let your creativity free flow!

You could perhaps add blueberries to your mixture. Or leave the banana out and make a savoury version, adding some salt and a topping of grilled tomatoes and mushrooms for a luxe weekend spread perhaps?

Note: One of my daughters really doesn’t like bananas but you can’t really taste the banana in the mixture. It just gives enough sweetness so that we need to put less over the top ūüôā

The tiny golden flaxseeds are also often called high- fibre superfoods as they are rich in antioxidants, high in healthy Omega 3 fatty acids and some even call them the most powerful plant foods on the planet! There’s even some evidence it may help reduce your risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes.

Oat Banana Flaxseed Pancakes – the sweet version

Ingredients: to make 3 small staples of pancakes

4 tbsp oats

1tbsp flaxseeds

5 tbsp of any milk

1/2 banana

1 egg

A bit of coconut or olive oil or frying spray

a handful of berries

honey/ maple syrup

Instructions: Mix all the ingredients together in your blender. Heat a little oil in a frying pan (I started using frying spray to not overload on oil as I find it helps monitor how much I use) and pour in your pancake mixture when hot. I make mine about 10cm in diameter as this looks really nice when stacked up. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked all the way through.

Note : don’t let the mixture sit for too long or it will become too dry. You can always add more milk if you feel it’s too thick.

Layer with berries in between and drizzle over some maple syruo or honey to sweeten. Enjoy! D xx
