So easy to make, these delicious pancakes shouldn’t be saved just for Shrove Tuesday. Enjoy them for breakfast or as a teatime treat.

Ingredients

1 large banana

1 egg

1 tbsp Meridian Chocolate Hazelnut Butter

Method (makes 4 servings)

1.     Mash the banana very well until it’s a puree. Beat the egg and stir in to the banana until well combined.

2.     Heat a non-stick pan and use ¼ of the mixture to make each pancake. Either spoon into circles or use a mould to make a heart shape. Add several dollops and drizzles of Meridian Chocolate Hazelnut butter to the pancake once it is in the pan and swirl with the tip of a knife before the mixture sets.

3.     Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side on a medium low hear and serve immediately with extra fruit and chocolate hazelnut butter.

The large scale cultivation of palm oil has been cited by environmental groups as a threat to the orangutan and other primates that inhabit the rainforests of Indonesia. The impact of these plantations included deforestation, habitat loss of critically endangered species and significant increase in greenhouse gas emissions.
