Note: This recipe comes from Jessica Cox, and originally featured in my interview with her.
For some, pancakes are pancakes. For the amazing nutritionist Jessica Cox, pancakes are a canvas for thousands of flavour combinations and mouth watering textures. The layers of soft warm pancakes against melting nut and seed butters and fresh fruit is just too much for her to resist time and time again.
Jessica also always reminds us that pancakes can be quick. Once you have your basics in place it can take just as much time to make pancakes for one as it would to construct a bowl of muesli with its additional toppings. They do take a little longer to eat than a smoothie on the go of course, yet sitting down to a stack of pancakes and being in touch with the food you are eating is so much more beneficial for your digestive system.
You will notice there are no added sweeteners in the batter. I find the sweetness of the bananas does the trick fine. You could add a dash of sweetener of course if you felt it necessary.

A gorgeous blend of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant rich turmeric, flavoursome curry, spicy cayenne, and a hint of salty sweetness. These yummy little morsels are new my favourite pre-dinner snack, as well as being amazing sprinkled over Asian dishes. Insanely delicious!
A healthy version of your favourite Easter egg – with no dairy, refined sugar, or unrecognisable numbers. Super fun to make and eat, Tony's proclaimed them "the best thing you’ve made in weeks”. You be the judge!
You will be blown away by the incredible flavour of this quick and easy no-bake crumble. Think juicy sweet apple, a dotting of sour blackberries, all encased in a buttery, walnut-y crumb. Add a dollop of coconut yoghurt or ice cream, and afternoon tea/dessert is served!
