I have discovered (through many an unpleasant experience) that my kids come out of school ‘hangry’ (hungry which makes you angry!) in the afternoons.
I need to have food prepared for them to shovel in quickly …. then mostly we can cope better with the afternoon homework and jobs .
These are the snack we made to ward off the hangries today – and they were demolished in mere minutes.
- 1 cup spelt flour
- 1 cup oat flour
- 2 tsp GF baking powder
- pinch Himilayan salt
- 100g honey/maple syrup
- 1 large overripe banana
- 45g Nuttelex/vegan butter
- 1.5 cups milk of choice
- 1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste.
For the coeliac friendly version replace the above flours with: 1 2/3 cups plain GF flour mix plus 1 tsp psyllium
Into your blender/processor/nutribullet/thermo cooker place the banana, Nuttelex, vanilla, milk and honey. Blitz until smooth (Speed 7, 10 seconds)
In a separate bowl, whisk together the baking powder, salt and flour (and psyillium if using).
Add the dry mix to the wet and mix to combine (Speed 4, 10 seconds, scrape down and repeat).
Place tablespoons of the mix into a hot, greased frying pan.
Cook until bubbles appear and pop, then flip and cook until the second side is golden.
Serve warm or cold with a little butter of choice …. I think they’re especially great with a smear of sunflower seed butter and some blueberries!
