Makes about 10 pancakes

Sift the flour into a bowl and then add the oats and the banana cream F1 and stir. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, the honey (if using) as well as the milk. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, and then add the liquid and whisk until it comes together. Be careful not to over-beat to keep the texture nice and light.

Heat a frying pan and then turn the heat down to medium low. Fold up some kitchen paper and dab some butter on it then wipe out the inside of the pan, do this each time you’re cooking another batch of pancakes. Once the pan is almost hot, drop tablespoonfuls of the mixture into the pan in a single layer, with a little space between each one as they’ll puff up a bit.

Cook for about 2 minutes, until bubbles appear on the surface (by this time the bottom should be golden brown).  Turn the pancakes over and cook until they feel just set in the centre and the bottoms are golden. Repeat with the rest of the mixture and serve straight from the pan with slices of banana and blueberries.


Note: To make Banana and cinnamon pancakes, add 1 tsp freshly ground cinnamon to the flour at the start.
