Ingredients for Blueberry Compote

  • 500g fresh blueberries
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 200ml water

  2. Drop in the berries and simmer for 30 seconds, stirring so all the berries are coated. Remove from the heat and leave to cool to room temperature.
  3. For pancakes: Sieve the flours, salt and baking powder into a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the middle.
  4. Mix together the almond milk, yoghurt, apple juice and vinegar.
  5. Pour this mixture into the well and using a wooden/plastic spoon bring the mix together to form a paste.
  6. Melt the coconut oil in a pan and cool slightly, pour into the mix, drizzle in the maple syrup and use a whisk to beat the mixture to a smooth consistency.
  7. Heat a non-stick pan till hot and add a very fine coat of vegetable/sunflower oil. Cook the pancakes in batches using roughly 50gr of mix per pancake for 2 mins on each side. The aim is to slowly pour the mix into the pan, so you have a raised pancake.
  8. Keep warm.
  9. When ready to serve stack the pancakes in a tower of 3, top with almond yoghurt and the blueberry compote.
