Easy Mango Pancakes Recipe
Craving something sweet yet satisfying for breakfast? Sometimes you need something more substantial than fruit or granola to get you going. A weekend treat doesn't have to be a fat-laden croissant or bacon sandwich; why not opt for fruit pancakes? If you make your own from scratch, you'll know exactly what goes in them.
We love this recipe by Deliciously Ella, packed with healthy coconut oil and almond butter (or you could use cashew butter) for protein. You'll also find bananas, mangos and blueberries in the mix – a great way to include more fruit in your diet. The addition of oats helps leave you feeling full, so you're less likely to snack, and these pancakes are dairy-free, yet delicious!
Makes 25 small pancakes
2 ripe bananas
4 slices of mango (180g)
1 cup of blueberries (150g)
3 tablespoons of nut butter
1 ½ cups of oats (240g)
Pinch of salt
2 cups of water
Make your pancakes
Peel the bananas and place the fruit (except the blueberries), nut butter, oats, water and salt into your food processor. Blend until you have a nice, smooth mix. Scoop out into a bowl and stir through the blueberries. You could use strawberries insead if you like! Leave the mixture to sit for a few minutes as this helps the oats to absorb the liquid.
Heat a non-stick frying pan with some coconut oil until it is really hot, then dollop heaped tablespoons of your pancake mix into the pan. You'll need to cook the mixture for around two minutes each side before flipping the pancakes over.
We like to serve these with extra fresh fruit and maybe some Greek yoghurt. Yum!
