Updated: Jul 16

Blueberry, cinnamon, peanut-butter pancakes. Is there a better way to express self-love?


You'll never have to mess around with eggs, baking powder, dairy milk or flour again.


Food engineer: James Fotherby

*Feeds two. Plate up in 30 minutes. Unbelievably simple*


Ingredients:

· Rolled oats.

· 1 banana.

· 300ml of water.

· 2 teaspoons of cinnamon.

· 1 dollop of crunchy peanut-butter (you're an animal if you eat smooth).

· A handful of fresh, washed blueberries.

· A syrup of your choice (golden, maple, agave... the world's your oyster).

· A dash of sunflower/olive/vegetable oil.

· Dairy-free butter (optional).

· That's literally it.


Method:

1) Add to a blender 5 scoops of oats and 300ml of water. Blitz till smooth.

2) Add banana, cinnamon and peanut-butter. Blitz. (If mixture is too thicc, add a bit more water and blend again.

3) Mix a handful of blueberries into batter with a spoon.

4) Add batter into an oiled pan on medium-heat in whatever shape you like (round circles, four-leaf clovers, oleg from Frozen).

5) Using a spatula, flip pancakes, place artistically on a plate when cooked.

6) Repeat steps 4 and 5 until all the batter has been used up.

7) Embellish pancakes with dairy-free butter (optional), more fresh blueberries, syrup and a light dusting of cinnamon.


Top-tip: You'll know when the pancakes are ready to flip when you see small bubbles appearing on the surface. Wait until you seen an even spread of bubbles before flipping.


Level-it up with a dollop of dairy-free yoghurt (alpro is the best), more fresh fruit and an ashwinder egg (if you know, you know). For rapid clean-up, fill blender with hot water and washing-up liquid and blend. It literally cleans itself.
