These have all been nutritious, delicious and incredible. We have chosen her Banana Teff Pancake recipe for our Inspired Recipe as it ticks all the boxes - simple, vegan, gluten-free, packed with nutrition, and best of all… they’re pancakes!

We recreated this recipe a couple of months back and have since made them almost every weekend! The beauty of these Teff pancakes is that they taste like a guilty pleasure but are in fact healthy and provide you with the nutrients to power you through the day! We’re impressed with just how well this recipe holds together and are excited to hear your thoughts. We’re certain that these Banana Teff Pancakes will instantly become a family favourite!
