Banana & Peanut Butter Pancakes

I know pancake day was yesterday but to me, that occasion calls for either fluffy American pancakes or crepes – the real deal.

However, a friend of mine made these babies for me a couple of weeks ago and they were super easy to make and absolutely delicious! So if you’re feeling a little guilty after a Nutella/sugar overload, why not give them a go for an almost guilt-free treat (whether it’s half-term or not):

Serves: 4 people (or 1 if you’re not feeling generous)


4 bananas

4 eggs

1 tsp cinnamon

1 heaped tablespoon of smooth peanut butter (or you could try almond or cashew nut butter)

2 tsp butter (or coconut oil)


– Chop the banana and add to a food processor with all the other ingredients except the butter/coconut oil

– Heat a large pan and start to melt the butter/coconut oil

– As the pan heats, blend your ingredients until they form a batter like texture. Taste and add more cinnamon if you wish

– Add the mixture to the pan, creating pancakes that are about 4 inches across. Of course, the bigger the pan the more you can add at one time

– Top with blueberries, yogurt or syrup and start munching!

Speedy pork stroganoff recipe

I recently tried this quick and easy recipe from Waitrose and highly recommend it for a mid-week supper.

Total time: 30 minutes (Waitrose says 15, I disagree)

 Feeds: 4 (2 adults and 2 children so if you’re more than 2 adults, its worth adding more)


450g pork fillet, diced (Although I used a pork filled which was on offer and delicious!)

5 rashers of bacon

1 tsp paprika

1 tbsp vegetable oil

2 leeks, sliced

100ml semi skimmed milk

300ml tub soured cream

Long grain rice

Broccoli florets, to serve


1. Coat the pork in paprika and season well.

2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry the pork for 5 minutes.

3. Add the bacon and leeks and fry for another 5-6 minutes until softened.

4. Stir in the milk.

5. Off the heat gently stir in the soured cream and season.

6. Serve with the cooked rice and steamed broccoli florets.

Enjoy and let me know what you think!
