Yummy, scrummy Sunday Pancakes!

As a weekly treat to myself (and my lovely boyfriend) I made (if I do say so myself) the yummiest, possibly healthiest? Pancakes ever! All from scratch :-)

Here's the ingredients I used and steps on how you can also make these delicious flat-cakes:

Banana, Chia Seed & Oat Bran Pancakes


x2 cups plain flour - can substitute for wholemeal
x1/2 teaspoon baking soda
x1/2 teaspoon baking powder
x1 tablespoon raw-brown sugar
x1 tablespoon Chia Seeds
x2 tablespoons oat bran
x1 egg
x1 tablespoon cinnamon
x2 brown-ripened bananas
x1 tablespoon cooking butter
Milk - gradually build up the mix

Step One:
In a mixing bowl, add the flour, baking soda and powder and combine together well with a whisk.
Then add the oat bran, chia seeds and sugar doing the same mixing method.

Step Two:
Grab a smaller bowl and start to mash the bananas with a fork. Once done, stir in the cinnamon and set aside.

Step Three:
Start to add the milk and beat in until the mixture is thick and not runny. Add in the egg and beat in well, then add the banana mix and a few more dashes of milk and mix.

Step Four:
Heat up a non-stick fry pan with the butter until melted then begin to add in the mixture bit by bit to create a nice batch.
NOTE: The tablespoon of butter should be enough to use the whole pancake mixture.
It makes them nice and white and not oily per the left image.

And that's pretty much how you do it!

You can serve it with fresh fruit, yogurt, cream etc. or with lemon curd like I did :-)
They taste fantastic and you only need a couple to fill you up which is the magic work done from the oat bran and chia seeds and they're stomach filling abilities :-)
