Ever tried melted, spreadable biscoff? I used it for the first time on these pancakes and it was delicious.
Equipment needed for this recipe: A blender/ mixer, a pan, measuring scales.
- 1/2 a banana
- 60 grams of oat flour (blended oats)
- 1 scoop of Bulk Powders vanilla protein powder but you could use any flavor you like
- 1tsp of baking powder
- 1 1/2 cups of any plant based milk ( I use almond milk) – Alternatively you could use normal cows milk
- Dash of cinnamon (optional)
- Berries (optional)
- Biscoff melted sauce or you could use an alternative if you prefer such as honey (optional)
- Oil ( I use spray sun flower oil)
Tip– Make sure you have all of your chosen ingredients prior to baking your pancakes. Trust me from past experience ( I didn’t have any baking powder) you don’t want to have to run out to the shop mid way through baking.
Step One: Gather all of your ingredients together and check that you have everything you need.
Step Two: Put 1/2 of a banana into the mixer (you could either keep for other half for later or put it on your pancakes as an extra topping).
Step Three: Add all of the dry ingredients to the blender which includes the oat flour (or whole oats), protein powder, baking powder and cinnamon.
Step Four: Now add the milk in the blender. I would do this a little at a time so then you can get the best consistency. Then blend the mixture for roughly 15/20 seconds, however this time will depend on your blender. The aim is to get the pancake mix a little running but doesn’t slide too quickly when you try and pour the mix.
Step Five: Leave the pancake mixture for around 5 minutes to let the mix firm a little. During the 5 minutes get your pan ready on the hob, spray some oil and let the pan get hot.
Step Six: Pour some of the mixture into the pan ( I do lots of small pancakes but you choose the size you want to make) and let it cook. REPEAT for the whole mixture and you should get 5 6 pancakes roughly, depending on size. I only had 5 of the 6 on my plate (see below).
Tip- Have the pan on a mid/ low heat (after getting it hot originally) and let the top side of the pancake cook until it gets quite a few air bubbles on it, then flip. I like to use a spatula whilst the pancake is first starting to cook around the edges to prevent it from sticking.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this recipe and give the pancakes a try! They are perfect for a mid day pick me up and to crave that sweet tooth . By giving this recipe a go and taking the time in the kitchen you are one step closer to finding your healthy, whatever that may look like for you.
Lots of love,
