2 tbsp Liberation Peanut Butter

- 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.
