It’s the Weekend!!!!
After a week detoxing from processed rubbish & chocolate & cake (another post contemplating this traumatic experience later), I decided I would treat myself to some easy, tasty & ‘clean’ (from scratch) pancakes. Saturday mornings in our house usually involve a lovely lie-in, breakfast in bed, coffee & then a killer PT session with Nicky at 11am. So it’s only right we have a filling & nutritious breakfast to start the day off!
I normally make the pancake mix in a few minutes whilst the tea is brewing & then cook them up whilst sipping on the tea. And as a weekend treat I’ve topped with some lovely pure maple syrup, blueberries, chopped hazelnuts & some creme fraiche. I LOVE maple syrup – the idea of these pancakes kept me going when the staff room was full of processed crappy (but so so tempting) mince pies!
These pancakes are so easy, so tasty, really filling & using wholesome, pure ingredients.
Makes 9 small (but fat) pancakes
Prep time: 2 mins, Cook time: allow 2-3 minutes per pancake
- 1 egg
- 1 banana
- 200ml milk (any milk works – I use standard milk as Simons not a fan of almond milk)
- 130g buckwheat flour
- Coconut oil/butter
- Handful of blueberries
- Maple syrup
- Chopped nuts (I used hazelnuts)
- Anything else you wanna add – I had some creme fraiche that needed eating today
- Put all the ingredients in your blender & blitz until it’s combined. (If you don’t have a blender I would really mash up the banana by hand, then in a large bowl tip the flour, gentle whisk in the milk, then the egg until combined & finally the banana).
- Heat the coconut oil or butter in a frying pan over a medium heat & pour in 2-3 tablespoons of the mixture & let it cook for about 1-2 minutes before flipping over.
- Cook for a further minute once flipped & then put on a plate under some foil until you’ve made them all.
- Serve with your chosen toppings & eat in bed with your favourite cup of tea!
