New years banana pancakes

Happy new year to everyone. I haven't been posting for a while, because I was away for the holidays. I hope you had a wonderful time with your friends and family:) We have started our new year with these cute little pancakes in our brand new pancake pan, which we have received for Xmas :) I guess my family already knows, that we are pancake addicts :P

here is what you will need:
- 1 cup of spelt flour
- 1 cup of oat-bran (oats cut very thinly)
- 2 cups of rice milk (you can use as well mineral water or any other plant based milk)
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 tsp pure vanilla
- 1 tsp turmeric
- 1/2 tsp cardamon (optional)
- a pinch of salt
- pinch of nutmeg 
- 2 tsp baking powder (phosphor free)
- 1 tbsp sugar beet syrup (or maple/date syrup)
- date syrup, banana and walnuts for topping

  1. Start with mashing the banana with a fork.
  2. Combine gradually all ingredients in a mixing bowl and add the mashed banana.  
  3. Leave the dough to sit for 10 minutes, so that the oats can soak up the liquid. Add mineral water or plant-based milk, if the batter gets too thick. The batter should be fairly thick, but thin enough to drip from the whisk.
  4. Coat a skillet pan with a bit of coconut or olive oil and heat it up to medium heat.
  5. Take a part from the dough and pour it to the skillet making a circular form.
  6. Cook the pancakes on medium until little bubbles are formed and outer edges become golden. Flip the pancakes and cook until golden.
  7. Top with date syrup, walnuts and bananas :)

Enjoy :)
