i am a huge cook, having realised that with five children no-one ever invites you anywhere. we have all jumped on a healthy, more paleo bandwagon, trying very hard to avoid flour and sugar, which means a lot of experimenting and adapting. i came up with these pancakes, which are american-style given that we now live in america, but we will all be tucking in on pancake day. they are flatter than regular american pancakes but delicious with maple syrup!
1 banana mashed to purée,
1/2 teaspoon vanilla,
1 teaspoon baking soda,
simply whizz all the ingredients in a blender and cook in coconut oil.
