Simple Breakfast Pancakes

(Serves 1-2)

100g plain flour
100g wholemeal flour
200ml water
2 tsp icing sugar

In a jug measure the flour and mix in the icing sugar and water. Using a whisk or a fork form a thick smooth batter. On the stove heat up your ceramic frying pan (found on amazon) to medium heat. Then pour in some of the batter and allow to cook. No oil needed. Once it appears to be cooked and the edges of the pancake start to rise using a spatula flip the pancake and fry the other side. Transfer to a plate and repeat for the remaining batter. Simple and delicious served with chopped banana and cinnamon :)

Raw Vegan Cake Pops

Raw Vegan Cake Pops

(Makes 12)

1 pack skewers
1 cup dried figs
1 cup dates
2 ripe frozen bananas
1/2 cup frozen raspberries 
1 apple
1 sundried banana (optional) 
1/4 tsp cinnamon 
1/4 cup carob powder
1 tsp vanilla extract 
100ml coconut water
1/3 cup sesame seeds
In a food processor add the figs and about 4 dates. Blitz until dough like texture. Pour into a bowl and take out small handfuls and roll into balls between your palms. Then place on a plate and pop in the freezer whilst you prepare the toppings. 

First for the carob topping: in your blender or with a hand blender blend the rest of the dates, carob, vanilla and coconut water until a smooth paste. (This is also an amazing 'chocolate' spread recipe) 

Secondly the nice cream topping: blend the frozen bananas, pour half into a bowl, add the frozen raspberries pour into a bowl, allow to thaw a bit for easy blending. 

Thirdly the apple topping: in your food processor pulse the apple and cinnamon to form tiny pieces. With scissors slice up the sundried banana into small pieces and mix in. 

Fourthly pour the sesame seeds into a bowl.   

Take out the fig balls from the freezer and stick on the top of each skewer. Then dip in the toppings and serve!
