Banana oat pancakesBanana oat pancakes

A twist on a classic pancake, these banana oat pancakes are packed with fruit and wholegrains.

We tied this recipe in with our MSK News issue #30, focusing on gout.

Melissa said “for those with gout, following a balanced, wholefood diet is important, not only for gout management but overall health as well”.

But we know these pancakes are sure to be a favourite for everyone.
