Especially when topped with your favourite toppings – more on that later.

How to make vegan pancakes
- Banana, one per person
- Plain flour, 100 grams per person
- Oat milk, 250 ml per person
- Baking soda, half a table spoon per person
- Coconut oil or dairy free spread
- Toppings: we love maple syrup, coconut yoghurt and fresh berries, peanut butter and banana, dairy free ice cream or melted chocolate. But you can use whatever you have at home.
1. Place your banana(s) in a bowl and mash using a fork.
2. Add your flour, oat milk and baking soda, mixing until you achieve a smooth, batter-like consistency. Feel free to add more flour, or oat milk, if you feel it necessary. Then, sprinkle in a dash of cinnamon.
3. Heat your pan with a small amount of coconut oil on a medium heat. When your pan feels hot, take a ladle and spoon out enough batter to form your first pancake.
Tip: the first pancake is notoriously the worst, so don't feel disheartened if your first attempt doesn't quite turn out as you might have liked. They'll get better!
4. Use a spatula to test whether your pancake has cooked on the underside. If it lifts easily from the pan, you can count this as cooked. The top will also start to set and may form bubbles when the underside is ready.
5. Time to get flipping! If you're feeling brave, try your hand at flipping without the aid of a spatula. If not, rely on your trusty utensils to help you out.
6. Once your pancake is cooked and golden on each side, remove it from your pan and place in the centre of your plate, ready for stacking.
7. Once you've made – and stacked – all of your pancakes, top with your favourite toppings.
