I'm new to agave syrup - I've always used good old fashioned maple - I guess that agave is better for you?

Hi Lucy - being a strange creature I like a bit of texture to my pancakes so I don't grind the oats. But they're quite small porridge oats so blend in quite well.

Hi mike, yeah of course you can use oats, I tend to ground the oats and make them into a smoother grain as it makes the pancakes less lumpy. Not so bad using ready brek or similar products as they have added calcium and vitamin d :)

Why not just use porridge oats rather than readybrek?

I'll be adding blackberries; free from the roadsides at the moment!

Great recipe which I will definitely try. it's a good idea to cut down on the flour. My recipe is 1/2 cup of flour and 1/2 cup of ground almonds. Tastes gorgeous and lots of protein.

I've always bought ready made pancakes (lazy I know) but this doesn't sound too hard to try and I reckon banana will taste much better than the doughiness of shop bought ones - thanks!
