Banana & Chia Pancakes

Banana & Chia Pancakes 

Easy, simple, nutritious and allergy friendly! No nuts, no eggs and they can be made vegan.

These pancakes are as easy as it gets and they are fluffy, delicious and take minutes to make.

I like adding in chia seeds as they are nutrient dense and a fab addition to your little one’s diet. Chia seeds are high in omega 3 fatty acids and a great source protein, healthy fats, fibre, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants.

You can use any milk you like for these, oat milk tastes lovely if you are looking to make them vegan.

They also freeze well, so make a big batch for breakfast another day!
