Easy weekend pancakes: delicious and nutritious 

I came up with this easy weekend pancakes recipe because I love pancakes, but they’re not always made with the healthiest ingredients.

I knew I could improve on that, so I experimented a bit and came up with these beauties!

Feeling good about all of the the food I eat regularly is super important to me. My meals also have to be quick and easy to prepare, because I don’t like messing around for too long in the kitchen.

These pancakes are a perfect weekend indulgence. They’re quick to whip, they’re made with nutritious ingredients, and they taste fantastic!

You literally throw all of the ingredients in a blender, then cook and enjoy. It really is that easy, I promise.

There’s no sugar added to the pancake mix; the banana adds a lovely natural sweetness, without an overwhelming flavour.

I love to top my pancakes with whatever fresh fruit I have on hand, and then drizzle over some pure maple syrup.

Kefir, or plain Greek yoghurt are some other topping options that will give your breakfast a probiotic boost.

Recipe notes

This recipe will make 2-3 large pancakes, so adjust the quantities accordingly.
To keep the pancakes free from added sugars, instead of topping with maple syrup try warming some strawberries in the microwave until they become soft and syrupy.
 
You can substitute any flour you prefer for the oats, or combine half and half – buckwheat flour or ground flax seed work really well with oat flour.
