Banana + Blueberry Pancakes (Vegan)

B A K E  0 0 2.
It's breakfast time again and you're reaching for the same old cereals that you've had the past 3 days in a row, yup, that was me too. Breakfast has slowly transformed into my favourite meal of the day as my options have become way more varied with the likes of eggs, spinach and beans to breakfast burritos or these tasty and simple banana + blueberry pancakes when I'm in the mood for something sweet. 
The main difference with these pancakes is the switch from using an egg to a ripe mashed up banana making them suitable for vegans as well as slight additional flavours from the cinnamon and almond milk. Now you have two options here, you can either throw your blueberries in the mix before cooking the stack to have them within the pancakes or toss them on the top after with a little Agave (I prefer them as a topping when they've still got a bit of a bite).  
Y O U  W I L L  N E E D

240g All Purpose Flour
2 tbsp Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
240ml Almond Milk
1 tbsp Coconut Oil, melted
1 Ripe Banana, mashed
1 tbsp of Soya Yoghurt
A drizzle of agave
Handful of Blueberries

PreBake - Before you start, pop on your grill on a super low heat for a few minutes just to get it warm inside, this is super handy for placing your pancakes in to keep them from getting cold as you finish cooking the rest.

Sieve the flour into a bowl and add the sugar, salt, baking powder and cinnamon to create a dry mix. 
T W O 
In a separate bowl, pour in the almond milk, melted coconut oil and the mashed banana to create a wet mix. 
T H R E E 
Make a well in the middle of the dry mix, tip in the wet mix and give it a good stir until a thick combined consistency is achieved.

It's time to create your stack....keeping the heat low, pop some coconut oil in a non stick pan, spoon your mixture in a circle. Leave them for a moment to cook on one side, you should start to see slight air bubbles popping on the surface, this is the indicator that I look for that tells me it is time to flip. Continue to cook them on the opposite side and then stack in the preheated grill on a piece of foil just to keep them warm whilst you cook the rest.

You've finally reached the end of your batter and they're ready to load up, top them with a dollop of yoghurt, a handful of blueberries and a drizzle of agave. 
Why not try making bitesize pancakes instead of your usual stack, they're great for kids, a topping for your dessert or make mini fruit sandwiches.
