Healthy Power Pancakes

These pancakes are far healthier than ordinary pancakes as they are made with oats and bananas instead of flour so contain more protein and fibre.  Good Source of Carbohydrate with Oats & Banana and protein with the eggs and milk. Add lots of colour to it with berries for that extra vitamin and mineral punch! Make a batch, freeze and thaw in a microwave for a quick breakfast when you’re pressed for time.
