Tom Daley shares a recipe from his new book for healthy Blueberry & Banana Pancakes. Stack ’em up for the perfect weekend treat without the guilt! Order a copy of Tom’s Daily Plan here.
- Put the chopped banana in a bowl and mash it with a fork. Add the egg, milk, oat bran or protein powder and the cinnamon and beat everything together until smooth. Set the mixture aside for 5 minutes to allow the oat bran or protein powder to be absorbed, then fold in the blueberries and seeds.
- Heat a frying pan over a medium heat for a minute or so. Add the butter or coconut oil and let it melt. As soon as it’s melted, drop spoonfuls of the batter into the pan – 3 or 4 will probably be enough as the pancakes expand as they cook. Once the pancakes are golden underneath, flip them over and cook them on the other side, again until golden.
- Remove the pancakes from the pan, put them on a plate and keep them warm while you make the rest.
- Serve the pancakes with a dollop of yoghurt, some extra blueberries, a drizzle of honey (a teaspoonful is plenty) and a pinch of cinnamon.
