I have to confess, this is my sister’s recipe, which I am shamelessly copying. With the disclaimer out of the way, this is a great recipe to cook either at the weekend or even during the week, as it doesn’t take long to make at all. Its a much healthier way of eating pancakes, and is … More Healthy Oat and Banana Pancakes
Much like my previous breakfast recipe, this is one for the weekend. When you fancy something a little bit fancier, and have a bit more time to do it, this is a great way of having something tasty without having to go out and buy 15 new ingredients!
