Nutritional values

Chia seeds are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, they are rich in antioxidants, and they provide fiber, iron, and calcium. Omega-3 fatty acids help raise HDL cholesterol, the “good” cholesterol that protects against heart attack and stroke.

You can also add honey or maple syrup on top of your pancakes.

Preparation steps

1.

Add the chia seeds to the milk and let soak for 20 minutes.  Mix together the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon. Peel the banana, mash with a fork, and stir into the flour mixture. Whisk the milk and lemon juice into the flour mixture to make a smooth, thick batter. If necessary, you may need to add some milk depending on the size of the banana.

2.

Heat the butter in a pan and cook the pancakes in batches, for 2-3 minutes per side. Rinse the kumquats in hot water and cut into slices. Peel, halve, and slice the persimmon. Top the pancakes with the fruit and serve.
