I believe, with all my heart, that if I don’t get a good breakfast – a happy breakfast – I’ll have a rubbish day. My breakfast needs to smile to me first thing in the morning, wafting its delicious fragrances my way, greeting me, and preparing me for the day ahead. I wanted something lemony and fresh to brighten up my morning, and so these were born.

Lemon Poppyseed Pancakes [Vegan]



  • 1 cup plain flour
  • peel of a whole lemon, juice of half a lemon
  • 4 tbsp almond milk
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds
  • 1 tsp stevia/1 tbsp agave syrup


  1. Combine the flour, poppy seeds, baking powder and lemon peel in a bowl, gradually adding the wet ingredients, careful  not to splash anything. You should obtain a thick batter; that’s how you get big, fluffy pancakes as opposed to thin, flat crêpes.
  2. Add to a pan and let them sizzle.
