JimJams Pancake Stack.jpg

Ingredients  (makes approx. 12)

150g Self Raising Flour
1 Tbsp oil (olive, vegetable or coconut)
1 Egg
335ml Milk
1 Jar of JimJams reduced sugar Hazelnut Chocolate Spread or Milk Chocolate Spread


Method

In a bowl or jug, whisk together the flour, milk and egg until you have a smooth batter. Let it stand for 20 minutes.

Place a non-stick pan over a medium heat, add a little oil and swirl around. When hot, pour a ladleful of batter into the pan.

Cook for 1 minute, then flip it over and cook the other side for 1 minute.

Remove from the pan and place onto a plate. Repeat with remaining mixture.

For the filling/topping: warm 4 tbsp of JimJams 83% Less Sugar Hazelnut or Milk Chocolate Spread in a microwave for 30 seconds and drizzle over the pancake. Alternatively, spread straight from jar onto pancake. Add some chopped banana or fruit of your choice – yum!

Overnight Oats

OvernightOats

Ingredients

1 cup of old fashioned chunky rolled oats.
1 ¼ cups Alpro (we used Oat Original) or Milk
2 tbsp Chia Seeds
JimJams 83% Less Sugar Chocolate Spread
Pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla essence (optional)
1 tbsp honey (optional)

 

Method

Melt 3 tbsp of JimJams 83% Less Sugar Chocolate Spread In a microwave for 30 seconds. 
Mix together the oats, Alpro, chia seeds, 3 tbps JimJams, salt, vanilla extract and honey in a bowl until well combined.

Transfer mixture into small glass storage jars (Kilner), filling them ¾ of the way.  Secure with lid and place in fridge overnight.

In the morning, the oats should be creamy and plump.  Remove from fridge and add your favourite toppings (we love Greek Yoghurt, fruit, nuts, crumbled oat cakes and, of course, more JimJams Chocolate Spread drizzled on top!).

Store oats (minus toppings) in fridge for up to 5 days.
