Following my own advice, I needed to find an alternative recipe for my kids so they could still enjoy banana pancakes and chocolate sauce on a Sunday morning without using flour or sugar.
You can substitute bananas with blueberries or raisins. (If you use raisins, its nice to add grated lemon rind and squeeze lemon and honey over them once they're cooked.)
Im a bit of a haphazard cook so ingredients are in approximate amounts.
200g of oats, whizzed in the food processor until finely ground
1 tsp bicarbonate soda
1 tsp baking powder
enough milk to make a dropping consistency (not too thick and not too thin)
2 mashed bananas
2 chopped bananas
Good quality dark chocolate (I use Callebaut because I used to be head chocolatier at BlueBottom Chocolates so I'm a chocolate snob) melted over a pan of hot (not boiling) water.
A couple of teaspoons of butter and enough semi-skimmed milk (start with a very little) to make into a thick sauce.
Mix dry ingredients and add egg and milk
Mix to form a smooth paste
Drop spoonfuls onto a griddle pan (you don't need fat if you have one of these)
or into a frying pan with a little olive oil or butter
Cook until golden and serve with chocolate sauce, honey, maple syrup or agave nectar.
A great start to any Sunday morning!
