Pimpin’ pancakes

So…I decided I wanted pancakes that were just nice. Not overly sweet like the appley ones I did! So I made up a recipe…banana, maple syrup and cashew pancakes! Mmm…

Ingredients to make 8 pancakes

2.5 cups self raising flour

2.5 cups water

2 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons ground nut oil

pinch of salt

half teaspoon vanilla extract

half teaspoon almond extract 

ground nut oil to cook pancakes

crushed salted cashews, maple syrup and chopped banana for filling

(note - the cups I used were not a measure per se, I literally used a coffee cup!)


1. Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl using a wooden spoon. It should come out the consistency of batter.

2. Using a ladle, take 2/3 of a spoon per pancake and cook for a few minutes either side until golden brown in a hot frying pan.

3. Put on your topping and eat!

Oat apple pancakes…

So, it was a Saturday morning and there is only one thing to do…make something yummy to eat! I just bought a new cookbook ‘500 Vegan Dishes’ by Deborah Gray, and the recipe was in it. They were scrummy and VERY filling. I only needed one! Without further ado…


Makes 6 large pancakes

100g self-raising flour

150g oats

2 tablespoons brown sugar

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

2 small apples, grated

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

500ml apple juice

Oil for frying

Maple syrup to serve

How does I do it?! 

1. Mix it all in a large mixing bowl. You should be left with something that looks something like this: 

2. Heat up a frying pan to a medium heat with a little oil in it. Place a whole ladel full of the mix into the middle for a large pancake, or a half for small ones. Cook for about 3-4 minutes each side until golden brown. This one is about ready to be turned!

3. Serve with maple syrup. 


They were very sweet! If you prefer a little less sweet pancake, substitute the apple juice for oat milk or another milk substitute. 

They were also very filling!
