  • 50g oats
  • 1 banana
  • 175ml unsweetened soy milk
  • 2 tbsp sugar, honey, or maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • 1.5 tbsp cacao or cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • Step 1 Blend the oats in a blender until finely grounded.
  • Step 2 Prepare the dry mix: place the oats in a large mixing bowl with 1 tbsp of the sugar (or honey/maple syrup), cinammon if using, cacao powder and baking powder.
  • Step 3 Place half the banana and all of the milk into the blender until the banana is fully blended.
  • Step 4 Add the wet mix to the dry mix and stir thoroughly until thick and dough-like. This is your pancake mix.
  • Step 5 Heat a pan to medium heat with some of the oil. Add 2-3 tbsp of the pancake mix to the pan. You’re likely to only be able to fit 2-3 pancakes at this point.
  • Step 6 When small bubbles start to appear, use a spatula to flip the pancakes over and cook for 1-2 minutes longer.
  • Step 7 Once cooked, place the pancakes on a plate and continue making pancakes until the pancake mix is used up, adding more of the oil where needed.
  • Step 8 Top with the other half of the banana sliced and sugar/honey/maple syrup.
  • Step 9 Enjoy!
