Banana Oat Pancakes

Bored of your regular smashed avocado on toast? Fancy kicking your pancake game up a notch? Using no flour and no sugar, these banana oat pancakes are a barely naughty alternative to your regular Sunday brunch!

For 1 person you will need:

• 1 banana

• 1 egg

• 65g of rolled oats

• ½ a teaspoon of baking powder

• A pinch of salt

• A pinch of cinnamon (depending on your cinnamon taste levels)

• Whatever you would like to serve! We used maple syrup, fresh raspberries and cherries, and a sprinkling of Cinnamon Swirl Popcorn.

Method:

• Use either a blender or tonnes of elbow grease to mush up the banana and egg, and then use your remaining strength to mix in the oats, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.

• It can be as smooth as you like it – we used a blender so it was silky smooth, but I’m sure it would be just as nice with a few chunks of banana inside!

• Let the batter have a little time out for 10-20 minutes so it can thicken.

• Heat a frying pan over a medium heat, and plop in a blob of coconut oil (or any oil you prefer).

• Fry generous spoonful’s of batter on both sides until golden brown, and good enough to wolf down in one bite.

• Serve with a drizzle of maple syrup and lashing of popcorn and fruit!

Easy peasey lemon squeezy!

Founder Helen Davies first set the up the business in her parents’ garage back in 2009, and has since upgraded to becoming an award winning ethical fashion label, selling direct from there store in St Just, and through independent retailers around the UK. Go Helen!

“Long coastal walks with Buster the EKO spaniel, wild swims and surfs on blustery winter mornings, reminds us of why we do what we do. We aspire to promote a well-balanced lifestyle and feel good factor in everything we do, and we hope our brand reflects this”

Just like us, Helen and the team draws inspiration from the wild and windy seaside, with the Cornish landscape reflected in their style, their natural materials and of course is a welcome escape from the office!
