Spiced Carrot & Banana Pancakes (1).jpgAs the mornings grow colder, the comfort breakfasts make an appearance and who doesn’t love pancakes? These carrot and banana pancakes are delicious, and super easy to make. For the topping I added carrot, raisins, linseeds and cinnamon cashew cream but they also taste great with berries so play around with your favourite toppings.
