Happy pancakes day everyone! These super sunny stack of turmeric and lemon pancakes can seriously brighten up even the gloomiest day 🙂
Apart from being super simple to make these beauties are also packed with goodness. I know turmeric might sounds a bit unusual but it actually work really well with the zestiness of the lemon and the sweetness of the bananas and it is also a power house of health benefits; it’s one of the food with highest concentration of antioxidants, anti inflammatory properties and it has even been proven to help fighting acne.
To top it all off I love having these pancaked with dates syrup caramelised bananas and some more lemon zest grated on top, I promise you the combination is just divine, perfect not only for pancakes day!
Ingredients – make about 8-10 pancakes
1.5 cup of rolled oats
1 very ripe banana
1 cup of rice milk
the zest of 1 lemon (preferably buy unwaxed organic lemons)
the juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 teaspoon of turmeric
2 tablespoon of coconut sugar (optional/ I didn’t use any as I find the caramelised bananas add enough sweetness)
For the caramelised bananas
2 apple bananas (you can use regular bananas if you can’t find them, just cut them in half)
1 teaspoon of coconut oil
2 teaspoon of date syrup
1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder
Place the oats into a blender and blend until a a flour starts to form.
Mash the banana in a bowl and then add all the other ingredients to your blender. Blitz well until everything is combined. The consistency should be nice and thick.
Heat up a non-stick pan. Use about a ¼ cup of the mix and pour into the pan. Heat until bubbles form about three quarters of the way cooked through and then flip to cook for another minute or two. Repeat with the rest of the mixture.
For the caramelised bananas:
In a frying pan heat up the coconut oil until it’s melted. Slice length way the apple bananas and add them to the pan. Sprinkle the banana with cinnamon and add the date syrup. Cook the banana for about 2-3 minutes until they are golden brown.
Stack your pancakes and place the caramelised bananas on top and grate some more lemon zest to finish it off!
