2 medium ripe bananas
Handful of blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (any other plant based milk works too)
1 ½ cups oats, gluten free if desired
2 tsps baking powder
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
A dash of salt
Coconut oil, for cooking
Add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend on high until completely smooth. This should take between 30 seconds to 1 minute. Let the batter sit in your blender while you heat your pan up. I like to let the batter sit for 5-10 minutes.
Lightly coat a pan with coconut oil and place over medium heat. Once pan is hot, add a dollop of the batter to the griddle for each pancake and cook for 2-4 minutes until the pancakes rise and you can easily slide a spatula underneath.
Flip the pancakes and cook until golden brown on both sides.
Wipe your pan and repeat with more oil and remaining batter.
Customize your pancakes
Mix-ins: Instead of blueberries why not try another berry, some nuts, or even some chocolate chips!
Toppings: where is the fun in pancakes without toppings?! I love adding extra berries, banana slices and a drizzle of honey or maple syrup. I sometimes add a little yoghurt and some nuts too.
Make minis: make cute little mini pancakes by dropping just 1-2 tablespoons of batter into your pan at a time!
