beetroot juice pancakes

Makes: 16

Ingredients:-
350g porridge oats
250ml plant-based milk (oat milk)
250ml beetroot juice
2 bananas
1 tsp baking powder
Coconut oil, for frying

To serve:
Blueberries, strawberries or any fruit of your choice
Oat cream
Maple syrup

Step One : Make the batter for these pancakes in a blender. Put the oats into your blender and blitz to a flour-like consistency. Now add the milk and the beetroot juice and blend, then add the bananas and baking powder and blitz again until the mixture resembles pancake batter.

Step Two : Put a frying pan over medium heat and melt 1 tsp of coconut oil in it. Scoop 1 tblsp batter into the pan for each pancake and cook for 2 1/2 minutes on the first side, until slightly golden. Flip and cook for a further 2 minutes on the second side.

Step Three : Once cooked, transfer to a plate and keep warm in a low oven while you make the remaining pancakes in the same way. Keep adding to the plate, piling them high. Add your favourite fruit, drizzle with the oat cream and maple syrup and serve immediately.
