Perfectly thick and fluffy vegan pancakes

You know when you make something so perfect you actually want to cry? No? Just me then…….. well anyway, these last minute pancakes turned out to be sooooo incredible that I’m being a terrible mother and delaying our trip to the park just to get this written up before Pancake Tuesday lol.

Morning everyone! Happy Monday 🙂 I’ll be starting off my morning with this yummy vibrant turmeric chai spiced porridge again today so I thought I’d share the recipe with all of you. There are so many reported health benefits to turmeric, better sleep, cancer prevention and reduction, eye health, lifts depression, better liver health, natural painkiller and anti-inflammatory…definitely worth including regularly in your diet. I use it a lot in curries but when I came across a picture of turmeric oatmeal I knew I had to try it like this! I also have to try it as a warm drink which is really popular, I think it’s known as golden milk. Will be lovely in spiced warm almond or coconut milk! I’ve included my ever present cinnamon in this because…well, because it’s cinnamon and it makes everything better 😉 a little black pepper in the mix increases the bioavailability of the turmeric so your body utilises it properly. The turmeric paste keeps for 5 days in the fridge if you’re wanting to make extra. If you’ve time, soak the oats in the milk overnight so they’ll be extra creamy 🙂 Continue reading →
