Vegan Fairtrade banana & salted peanut pancakes (VG)

This flavour combo is fantastic, with lots of crunch from the nuts

Serves 2 • Ready in 30 mins

  • 1 large ripe Co-op Fairtrade banana, plus extra slices to serve
  • 2 tbsp Co-op Fairtrade light brown soft sugar
  • 3 tbsp Co-op vegetable oil
  • 150ml unsweetened oat drink
  • 150g Co-op self raising white flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp Co-op pure Canadian maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp Co-op roasted and salted peanuts, roughly chopped
  1. Mash the banana with the sugar and 1 tbsp of the oil. Mix in the oat drink. Put the flour and baking powder in a bowl, make a well and stir in the wet ingredients
  2. Heat 1 tbsp more of the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat, then add 2 ladlefuls of the batter. Cook for 2-3 mins on each side, until bubbles start to appear, then flip over and cook the other side for 2-3 mins until golden. Keep warm under a tea towel while you repeat to make 8 pancakes in total, adding the remaining oil as needed
  3. To serve, drizzle the pancakes with maple syrup and scatter over the peanuts and extra banana.
