Recipe 5 of my collaboration with PONA. Today I decided to treat myself to a lazy Sunday breakfast and what could be better than a plate of fluffy pancakes. These pancakes are super easy, but packed full of flavour. Banana, Orange and Baobab is a match made in heaven. They make a great addition to any brunch, breakfast or after dinner treat, not to mention they are also far healthier than a traditional pancake and contain loads of potassium, vitamin C, anti-oxidants and more. Naturally sweetened with banana and dates, I served mine with maple syrup as an extra indulgence, but you can easily just pile them with sweet summer fruit. The baobab helps make the pancakes super fluffy, so there is no need to add baking powder or bicarbonate of soda.

Add the milk, dates, banana and baobab to the food processor and blend until smooth. Pour into the dry ingredients and whisk well until you have a thick smooth batter. Add a little extra milk if too thick.
