Pancakes :)

Hello folks!
Yes, I know it's Friday, not pancake Sunday, but I made pancakes yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed them and wanted to be a kind Samaritan and give you the recipe for them :)

 These little beauty's are vanilla protein pancakes that are dairy, wheat, sugar, soy, nut (unless topping them with nut butter) free and vegan!
Super yummy and super easy!

Vanilla Protein Pancakes
25g wholemeal/white spelt flour
25g rolled oats
One scoop of vanilla protein powder (or any flavour, if you're feeling chocolate pancakes or strawberry etc.)
10g oat bran
1/2 a teaspoon baking powder
sprinkle of chia seeds (1-2 teaspoons)
1/2 cup milk of choice (I used almond milk, you may need more/ less depending on your preference/ type of milk etc.)
oil for cooking (olive oil, coconut oil- any oil you like)

1. Place everything but the milk into a medium bowl and stir to combine.
2. Slowly pour in the milk, whisking at the same time until the batter reaches a pouring cream consistency (lumpy pouring cream- there are oats in there!)

3. Let sit for a few minutes to settle and thicken, in the meantime, how about a smoothie?
To make this berry blast smoothie, place 1 chopped frozen banana, 1 big handful of mixed frozen berries, 3 big scoops of greek yoghurt (optional for vegans- sub in vegan yoghurt/ extra milk) and a splash of almond milk into a blender and whaz until smooth:
4. Place in the freezer until pancakes are ready:

5. Heat a medium non-stick fry pan over low-medium heat and coat with olive oil/ coconut oil/ any oil you like.
6. Once the pan is hot, spoon on the batter and leave to cook for about 3 minutes before trying to flip (no eggs make the pancakes more fragile)
7. Once golden on that side, flip over and cook for another minute or two. Kepp cooking until golden brown on each side:

8. Remove from pan and place on paper covering to keep hot while you realise you might just have enough mixture to make one more:
9. And of course this one turns out the best of all of them:
10. Place pancakes on plate and top with anything you like- syrup, lemon juice, jam, coconut butter. I topped mine with cashew butter and almond butter:

I mentioned this in my thinking out loud post, but don't you just love cutting you're pancakes into different shapes before eating them? Just me? Ok!
So, before you pour yourself that boring old bowl of cereal, maybe whip up a batch of these to keep you fueled right up until lunch!
They sure did that for me!

Do you like pancakes?
Favourite flavour? Mine probably would be either blueberry or just plain- so I can top them with loads of yummy stuff
Secret topping? Do you top your pancakes with something no one would have thought of? Just curious, as I used to top mine with tomato sauce :)

Have a brilliant day everyone! :D
