Makes: 8-10 peanut butter pancakes, serves 2
Time: 10 minutes prep + 10 minutes cooking
1 ripe banana
1 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp Liberation Peanut Butter
200ml plant-based milk
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp Traidcraft White or Golden Caster Sugar
40g Divine 85% Dark Ginger Chocolate, chopped
100g Tropical Wholefoods Sun-Dried Banana Chewy Chips
Oil, for frying
Serving: coconut yoghurt, extra banana chewy cups, chopped chocolate, melted chocolate, peanut butter, berries/pomegranate
Add the oats, banana, chia seeds, peanut butter, milk, baking powder and sugar to a blender and blend until smooth. Leave to rest for 5 minutes. Stir through the chocolate.
Heat a large non-stick frying pan with a little oil and add ¼ cup of batter per pancake. Shape into a circle and top with 5-6 chewy banana pieces. Once bubbling and cooked underneath, flip over to cook on the second side. Repeat to make all the pancakes.
In between pancakes, remove any melted chocolate left in the pan as it will catch and burn.
Serve warm stacked and topped with some yoghurt, extra peanut butter, chewy banana pieces, chopped chocolate, melted chocolate and fresh berries.
