  • 180 ml almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 bananas

  2. Heat a skillet and melt some of the coconut oil over medium heat. Pour 2 to three tablespoons of the batter into the pan and cook until golden, about 3 minutes, then flip and cook on the other side and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with the rest of the batter, stacking the pancakes and keeping them warm.

Remove the bananas from the pan and then replace over the heat. Add the walnuts and toast for a few minutes.
