For the next instalment of Eat Well,
Presented by Raquel from Project 6
These two recipes go fantastic together and a fab start to the day.
1 tbsp porridge oats
80g soft fruit (whatever you have – strawberries, blueberries, and mango all work well)
1 tsp honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
Put all the ingredients in a blender and whizz for 1 min until smooth.
Pour the banana oat smoothie into two glasses to serve.
300g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp sugar (any kind)
1 tbsp vanilla extract
400ml plant-based milk (such as oat, almond or soya)
1 tbsp vegetable oil for cooking
To serve (optional)
banana slices, blueberries, maple syrup, vegan chocolate chips, plant-based yogurt
Whisk the flour, baking powder, sugar, vanilla extract and a pinch of salt in a bowl using a balloon whisk until mixed. Slowly pour in the milk until you get a smooth, thick batter.
Heat a little of the oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium-low heat, and add 2 tbsp batter into the pan at a time to make small, round pancakes. You will need to do this in batches of two-three at a time. Cook for 3-4 mins until the edges are set, and bubbles are appearing on the surface. Flip the pancakes over and cook for another 2-3 mins until golden on both sides and cooked through. Keep warm in a low oven while you cook the remaining pancakes.
Serve stacked with lots of toppings of your choice, or serve with bowls of toppings for everyone to help themselves.
