Light and Fluffy blueberry pancakes, easy enough to make for weekday breakfasts and decadent enough for Sunday brunch.
Serves: 8 large pancakes
  • 1¼ cups almond milk
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds or flax seeds
  • 1 large banana
  • 1 tsp ground or liquid vanilla
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 2 cups rolled oats (gluten free if necessary)
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  1. Heat 1 tbsp of coconut oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. It's important to do this first so that the pan is really hot when you start to cook the pancakes.
  2. Add all ingredients (except the blueberries) to a blender, and blend until you have a smooth, pourable batter.
  3. Stir in the blueberries.
  4. Ladle the batter into the frying pan to make pancakes of your desired size. Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side, or until they start to brown and bubble around the edges.
  5. Serve with maple syrup and fresh fruit
