Ingredients

  • 2 bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats old fashioned
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons raw cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt

for the macerated berries

  • 2 cups mixed berries
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon water

Instructions

  • In a blender, combine the peeled banana, eggs, oats, baking powder, cocoa powder, vanilla and salt.
  • Allow to blend until the mixture is as smooth as you want it and blended well. Allow the batter to stand for 10-20 minutes until thickened slightly. (Alternatively make the batter the night before and keep in a sealed container in the fridge.)
  • Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat.
  • Fry spoonfuls of the batter until golden brown on both sides.
  • To make the macerated berries, combine the berries (slice the strawberries if using) with the honey and water and allow to stand for 10-15 minutes until the berries have started releasing their juices.
  • Serve the pancakes with the macerated berries or simply with a drizzle of maple syrup.
