1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
1 tablespoon coconut oil
250 ml unsweetened soya milk, or almond milk
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
125 g wholemeal flour
1 teaspoon golden caster sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 pinch of sea salt
50 g blueberries, plus extra to serve
soya yoghurt, to serve
maple syrup, to serve
Whisk together the ground flaxseed and 2½ tablespoons of cold water, then set aside to thicken. Meanwhile, melt the coconut oil in a small pan over a medium heat, then leave to cool slightly.
Combine the soya or almond milk and cider vinegar. Add the melted coconut oil, then whisk in the flaxseed mixture.
Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt, then make a well in the middle. Gradually pour in the wet mixture, stirring continuously until combined – don't worry if there are still a few lumps. Fold in the blueberries, then set aside.
Preheat the oven to its lowest temperature. Heat a splash of vegetable oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add a ladleful of the batter to the pan (one ladleful is enough for one pancake), then add more ladlefuls of the batter, ensuring they're nicely spaced out – you'll need to do this in batches.
Cook for around 2 minutes, or until golden underneath and little bubbles start to appear on the surface, then use a palette knife to flip them over. Cook for a further 2 minutes, or until golden. Place in the oven to keep warm while you make the remaining pancakes.
Serve with a dollop of soya yoghurt, a drizzle of maple syrup and extra blueberries, if you like.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
