Perfect Pancakes For Two

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner but as pancake day is too, we thought we would combine the two for a perfectly romantic breakfast recipe.

This particular pancake recipe not only uses a few simple ingredients you may have stashed in cupboard (and fruit bowl) including bananas and oats, but it is also vegan and gluten free. For those extra brownie points why not try making them heart-shaped using either a silicone heart-shaped mould or hand drawn straight into the pan using a plastic condiment bottle.

This loved-up recipe also produces some beautiful pinky red pancakes with the addition of frozen raspberries and a little natural food colouring.
