These are super cute and simple to make! You can even make the batter the day before and put it in the fridge over night. I had the idea for them a while back and decided to test it out. It works! Definitely think of these next time you are making brunch, dessert, breakfast, or just an afternoon snack for the family. This is a really basic recipe and you can always experiment with it. Add some cocoa powder, blueberries, or chocolate chips... the possibilities are infinite!
- 140g (1 cup 1 tbsp) spelt flour
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 3 tbsp brown sugar
- 30g (2tbsp) coconut oil, room temperature
- 240 ml (1 cup) oat milk
- 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 1 very ripe banana, mashed
- Combine the oat milk with lemon juice and let stand for five minutes (this creates a sort of buttermilk mixture).
- In a bowl whisk together the dry ingredients and set aside.
- In a separate bowl combine the mashed banana with coconut oil, whisk.
- After five minutes add the oat buttermilk and whisk to combine.
- Pour the wet ingredient into the flour and gently fold it in. Let sit for about an hour or overnight.
- When you are ready get your pan warmed up - medium heat and spoon the batter onto the pan using two teaspoons no buttering of the pan needed. Make the pancakes really tiny, so about three are enough for one bite.
- Slice up a banana and start assembling. You could use any seasonal fruit available to you or you could use a variety of different fruits, just to spice things up.
- If desired, drizzle with maple syrup before serving.
These will hold at room temperature for several hours and they taste delicious even cold!
