Healthy Mango and Oats Pancakes

Being a vegetarian (minus eggs) person, pancakes are again one thing that I can’t have outside ๐Ÿ™ I knew what needs to be done to whip up a quick batch of eggless pancakes, but somehow I never got around it! And then today I was home all day and the weather was really warm and I wanted ice-cream. So the ever-faithful, absolutely healthy and smashing one-ingredient ice-cream came to my rescue! While the ice-cream was freezing – I thought of having pancakes and ice-cream for lunch ๐Ÿ™‚ That is not too bad right – oats, mangoes, bananas and milk!

Unfortunately I could never replicate the tasteย successfully ๐Ÿ˜› I have not given up on creating a perfect guvar curry – but for now I definitely have a hands down favorite poha recipe with Guvar ๐Ÿ™‚
