On Saturday morning I made this recipe by Jamie Oliver and I thought that I needed to share it with you all! I could not find a website link so I have typed it out and the book it is from is called ‘Everyday Superfood’
They are yummy and make breakfast even more interesting!
320g blueberries or raspberries
1 ripe banana
170ml semi-skimmed milk
1 large egg
250g wholemeal self-raising flour
4 tablespoons natural yoghurt
30g mixed unsalted chopped nuts, such as walnuts, pecans and hazelnuts
Blitz half the berries, the peeled banana, milk, egg and flour in a blender to make a smoothie pancake batter. Tip into a bowl and fold in the remaining berries. Place a large non-stick frying pan on a medium-high heat. Once hot, put your batter into the pan to make large pancakes or little ones, whichever you fancy. Either way cook for a couple of minutes on each side, or until crisp or golden. Sometimes I flip them for an additional 30 seconds on each brown side to ensure they get super-crispy. Serve as and when they’re ready, while you get on with more.
To serve, I like to slice my pancakes in half so you can see all that lovely fruit. Top with a dollop of yoghurt, a sprinkling of cinnamon and scattering of toasted nuts, then finish with a little drizzle of honey.
Side note: once you’ve made the pancake batter, you can cook it right away or pop it into the fridge to keep for up to 3 days, to use each morning. Takes 20 minutes to cook.
