I love Sundays. I’m definetly a Sunday kind of girl. There’s something about the pace of everything , the calmness ! My day usually consists of a long lie in then surface and create some form of brunch. Today’s choice, pancakes. Since everyone knows calories don’t exist on the weekend , why not ? Sweet and warm they’re prefect to take back to bed for an extra hour with a good book.
These Banana based pancakes aren’t laden with processed sugars which makes then less sickly. Not sure if that’s a good thing or not as I then manage to eat like 7 5. They are small though…
3tbs ground Flax seed (linseed )
4tbs Organic Flour
1tsp Baking powder
Pinch of Cinnamon.
Spray oil of choice
Blueberry syrup :
1 cup Blueberries
2 tbs Honey or Maple syrup.
Pop Bananas and ground Flax into a food processor and blitz to a liquid. Then add flour , Baking powder and cinnamon. Pulse to combine but don’t over mix , no one wants tough pancakes ! Then let this mixture sit for 5-10 to let the flax seed do its part and bind everything together.
Mean while I suggest you make the syrup. Add blueberries and lemon juice and zest to a pan and bring to a simmer to get the blueberries to pop. Once they’re nice and squishy stir the Honey through and take off the heat.
After that warm either a non stick pan , or a skillet with a thin layer of the spray oil. We just don’t want the pancakes to stick , we aren’t frying them. Once it’s medium to low heat add 1tbs of the mix at at time to make little pancakes , they will puff up so give them room (I recommend little ones as they can be difficult to flip ) Once they’re starting to set pop a few blueberries on each pancake , like so …
Once they’re puffed up check the bottom of one if it’s set , if so give them all a flip.
This mixture makes about 12 silver dollar pancakes depending on the size of your Bananas…
