Vegan Pancakes With Bananas And Caramel Sauce

It's that time of the year: Pancake Day My lovely friend Christine Bailey has shared this recipe to all of my Facebook friends on Louise Joyce ND but I thought you all would love it too Pancake day is a relatively new thing to me and I must confess I don't really do it. But I know a load of you do so here is another recipe for you Vegan pancakes! 125g gluten free flour 1tsp gluten-free baking powder 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon 100-125ml almond milk, coconut milk or cream 1tbsp vanilla 1tsp coconut oil melted or olive oil 2tsp chia seeds 1 ripe banana Additional coconut oil for frying Simply blend all the ingredients in a blender or nutri bullet. Allow to sit for five minutes. Heat a little oil in a frying pan - add spoonfuls to create little blinis. Cook for 1-2 minutes until the edges turn golden then flip and cook for a further 30 seconds. Repeat with the batter and serve with coconut yogurt and fruit or use my caramel sauce recipe for an indulgent treat I have shared these with my friend who is looking for egg free baking for her allergic son #vegan #veganpancakes #pancakeday #glutenfree #dairyfree #sweettreat #eggfree @christinembailey
