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.
