Brownie Batter Protein Pancakes

So I've posted these over on my page a few times now and keep getting asked for the recipe. Thought i would pop them over on the blog for everyone and who knows, maybes you have just stumbled upon these by accident! what a happy accident that will now become. These pancakes are so rich and almost gooey inside, paired with some fresh fruit they really are a big breakfast treat. Lets get onto what your going to need. 

What you will need 
1/2 large mashed banana
1/4 cup yogurt 
1 egg replacement
1/4 cup oat flour
1tsp baking powder
3tbs cacao
1tbs agave syrup
1/4 cup of protein powder 
2-4 tbs milk (this will depend on your egg replacement but you want a nice thick batter)

Mix everything together in a large bowl i usually add the milk at the end.
Place mixture into pipping bag, this is the secret to getting round pancakes. Pipe into a pan over medium heat with some coconut oil in and leave for a good few minutes before attempting to flip over, i found these took slightly longer than regular pancakes to cook. Makes around 8 pancakes.

I hope you try these pancakes out they really are such a treat and a great way to get some added protein into your breakfast. If you do decide to make them be sure to tag me over on my Instagram i love seeing your recreations. Until next time, Helen xx

Quick chia jam

Ok so one of my followers asked if i would tell them recipe for my quick chia jam i usually put on toast etc. I thought its pretty simple i shall pop it on my website so everyone can see it if they wish. 

1/2 cup frozen mixed berries 
1 heaped tbs chia seeds 
 1/2tsp vanilla 
1/2tsp maple syrup 

Place ingredients, berries, vanilla and maple in a microwave save mug and microwave for 30 seconds at a time for 2 minutes, give it a stir every now and again and mash a few berries if you wish. When it comes out stir in the chia seeds leave to cool down and set up for 15 minutes for till its thick enough and cool enough to eat. Spread on your favourite toast, or my favourite on top of peanut butter.

Banoffee Cheesecake

Okay so this idea came about when flicking through Jamie Olivers new simple ingredients cookbook and came across a semi frozen cheesecake using 5 simple ingredients. Excited to try it i thought why not do it with a twist and make it vegan, gluten free and free from refined sugar. 

I had so many messages last night asking for the recipe for this, my inbox was literally going crazy! So i decided to write it up on here for easy reference for everyone. I should really do this for quite a few recipes i have posted on my page. Absolutely love sharing pictures and creating recipes for you guys, just sometimes have no idea what to write on a blog post.

So onto what your going to need for this. Just to letting you guys know jambs recipe was twice this size so if you want to make it bigger (serving 10) just double the recipe here and use a 20cm tin. 

Ripe bananas 
Raw chocolate (or any dark chocolate will do)
Soaked Cashews 

Thats literally all you need to make this cake, how amazing is that? ok so I'm going to split this up into 2 sections first the base heres what your going to need.

100g of gluten free oats 
1/2 tbs olive oil 
1/4 cup dates 
1tbs heaped chocolate melted 

Pulse ingredients in a food processor until a semi sticky dough forms, press in it into a lined spring tin (around 12cm) put to one side. 

Now onto the cheesecake filling, take your cashews that should soak over night in water or if you want to make this tonight just place them in boiling water for around a hour (in a pan works well to keep the water hot) 

4 Ripe bananas 
150g cashews 
1/3 cup dates 

Place everything back into the same processor and blend until smooth, place on top of the base and place it in the freezer to freeze over night. when your ready to eat it take it out the freezer and leave to thaw out (i left mine out for 1 hour in the fridge) Top with chocolate shavings and in my case rose petals completely optional. Serve and enjoy!

I hope you enjoyed this twist on an already amazing recipe by Mr Oliver. If you do decide to make this one, take a snap and upload it on Instagram and tag me in the picture. I love sharing your recreations! :)
