  • Pinch salt
  • 40ml milk of choice

1. In a blender, combine the banana, flour, almond milk, eggs, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.

2. Blitz this until you’re left with a smooth pancake batter.

4. Repeat this process for as many pancakes as you can fit into your pan.

5. When the surface of the pancake has begun to bubble, carefully flip and cook on the other side.

6. Once the pancakes are all completely cooked, serve with some fresh fruit and a drizzle of honey.
