Quick, healthy Oat & Banana Pancakes (Vegan/Gluten Free)

IMG_6130Pancakes are what I live for. A day off is not complete without pancakes in there somewhere.

If you follow me on instagram then you would’ve seen my insta-stories are always packed with these babies as their one of my favourite breakfasts.ย This recipe has been a firm favourite since day one. These aren’t a fluffy american-style pancake, they’re filling and a little spongy in the middle.

When I wasn’t plant-based, I used to make this recipe but it included an egg. After becoming vegan, I tried to adapt the recipe without the egg and without the need of a flax or chia ‘egg’. (Because my stomach can’t afford to wait 5 minutes for the chia to soak. Lets be real.) But I could never get the ratio of oats/milk right and they were always too liquid, too dense or they stuck to the pan like a motherf*****.

Alas I finally cracked it and have been eating these for a while now. I don’t take credit for this recipe, as I found it originally somewhere on the internet a long time ago, but have adapted it to fit my needs now. This morning I cooked a batch, jumped into my bed to eat them when I thought, ‘I should really put these on the blog.’ Not because this is some sort of earth shattering amazing break-through, but because I feel like everyone deserves to have such an easy and gratifying recipe. So I ran to grab my camera and took some quick snaps (these are probably the most impromptu, quickest photos I’ve ever taken; in my bed no less.)

What I love about these pancakes is that they’re so easy to knock up and are actually good for you! Just 4 ingredients. That’s it! No flour, no butter, no eggs, no sugar. Nothing. So yes, I know you’re thinking they probably taste like crap. But I assure you, you can say goodbye to your traditional pancakes and hello to these fibre and vitamin filled delights. A sweet breakfast to keep you full until lunchtime.

Simple Homemade Granola

IMG_0953Breakfast is by far my favourite meal. Second is Sunday Lunch. Third – Dessert.

Weird order of preference for a baking obsessed 20 something pastry chef… I know. I just love having a mini lie-in on my day off and leisurely getting ready to face the outside world; the only thing propelling me forward is the thought of breakfast waiting for me at the end like a glistening prize. Theres something so glamorous about going out to eat breakfast. Continue reading “Simple Homemade Granola”

Strawberry, Peach and Ginger Crumble

crumble portion close

This week has beenโ€ฆ tiring.

I mean, ‘did i just open the fridge to get a saucepan?’ kind of tiring.

The kind of exhaustion that means that you do absolutely nothing on your day off. Pyjamas will not be removed, sun will not be seen and social contact will not be made. Continue reading “Strawberry, Peach and Ginger Crumble”

Chocolate and Oat Cookies


There are some things in life which every person should have as a human right. Cookies, for example, should be a human right. What would tea be without the humble biscuit?

I know there is always going to be an ongoing divide about what makes the perfect chocolate chip cookie. Iโ€™m on the chewy side of the chocolate chip cookie debate, I love a gooey melted choc chip masterpiece. I have no time for people who like a crisp cookie.
