So here is my recipe which has come from many a not-so-good pancake attempt, I hope you enjoy.
OB Pancakes Recipe: dairy- free, egg-free, wheat-free and sugar- free
makes about 8-10 pancakes
1/2 a cup of oats (can be gluten- free if you like)
1/2 a cup of buckwheat flour
pinch of salt
1 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon1/2 a cup of dairy-free milk of your choice (add little splashes if the batter becomes slightly too thick- it needs to be pourable!)
2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar/ lemon juice
1 tsp of coconut oil
AND a non-stick pan (I have learnt from too many stuck pancakes in a non non- stick pan!)
Things I like to pop into my pancakes (add only once you've poured the batter in the pan):
First of all, blend the two flours, salt, baking powder and ground cinnamon til the oats have become a fine consistency too. Then add the milk, banana, lemon juice, vanilla extract and honey and blend until smooth.
Heat the non- stick frying pan with half a tbsp of coconut oil over a medium heat. Add however much pancake batter you like and now is the time to add whatever little things you like (blueberries/ cacao nibs). Allow the sides to bubble and flip!
A good tip from my Grannie to keep the pancakes warm is to place a plate over a saucepan of gently simmering hot water, and then a damp tea towel over the pancakes.

What better to have with pancakes, than a beautifully creamy chocolate smoothie...
makes 1 serving:
1/2 a ripe avocado
1/2 a cup of dairy- free milk
1/2 a cup of water/ coconut water
1 tbsp of cocoa powder (Gwyneth uses raw cacao powder so more cocoa powder is required here )
1/2 tbsp of honey
1 tbsp of flaxseed
You can also add a sprinkling of cacao nibs, if you like!
Before you blend all the ingredients, I like to put a glass in the freezer for a good couple of minutes so that you have a lovely cold glass for your smoothie!
