Pancake tower

Pancake towerI love pancakes! And I don’t like to restrict myself of things I enjoy, I just try to take a recipe and adapt it to meet my needs. These are my post run brunch special. I like to add the protein powder and to make my tower really big with a lot of toppings that it normally always falls over. The most important step in this recipe is the instagram post.

Ingredients

  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds/linseeds
  • 4 tbsp water
  • 1 heaped tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp sweetener (maple syrup, honey, agave syrup, 2 dates soaked in boiling water till soft and drained)
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • Optional: 2 tsp protein powder (Vital http://premier-pharmacy.com/product-category/antibiotics/ chocolate protein is my favourite)

Toppings

  • Berries
  • Banana
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Maple syrup, honey
  • Greek yoghurt

Method

  • Peel and mash the bananas, add the oat, chia gel mixture, cinnamon, sweetener stirring until a batter is formed
  • Heat a non-stick pan and place coconut oil over medium heat
  • Add 2 tbsp of mixture and cook for 1-2 minutes before flipping. Repeat with remaining mixture
