The recipe is very easy and takes about 10 mins. They keep very well in the fridge so you could make these pancakes the day before for a quick & healthy breakfast.

150ml almond milk*
100g oats*
1 tsp gluten-free baking powder
pinch of salt
½ tsp ground cinnamon
1 banana
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 tsp sunflower oil
maple syrup to serve

Grind the oats in a food processor to make flour. Mix with the baking powder, salt & cinnamon.

In a blender or food processor, blend the banana almond milk and vanilla. Stir into the flour mixture.

Heat the oil in a frying pan and tip in a ladleful of the pancake mixture. Cook on a medium heat till golden underneath then flip over and cook for a further minute. These are thicker than normal pancakes so work best if they’re not too big.

Drizzle with maple syrup. Yum, yum!

Serve with handful of berries for a treat!
