Breakfast or dessert, we can all agree that pancakes are, in fact, the best way to start and end the day.

Made with almond milk, dates and a ripe banana, this Pancake Day you’ll be serving up a fulfilling breakfast or late-night treat in under 20 minutes. Tip: double the recipe so there’s more for you to stack up on.

Cooking time: 20 minutes | Servings: 2



1 cup wholemeal spelt flour
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
3 medjool dates, pitted
3 tbsp raw cacao powder
1 overripe banana


1/3 cup coconut milk
2 tbsp Mayver’s Smooth Peanut Butter
3 medjool dates


1. Starting with the pancakes, blend the dates and almond milk until they are well combined (no chunks).

2. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour with the cacao powder, date/almond milk from the blender and the banana. Mash the banana through the mixture with a fork.

3. In a non-stick frying pan over medium heat, cook the pancakes for approximately 2 minutes on either side. Remove, set aside and pre-plate.

4. For the sauce, blend the ingredients until smooth and creamy. Pour over pancakes when they’re ready.
