In a bowl, add the banana, yoghurt, vanilla bean paste, egg and milk and mix together well.
To the same bowl, sieve in the flour, cinnamon, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder.
Gently fold in the flour mixture until just combined, be careful not to over mix.
Fold in the apple and raisins. Do not over mix.
In a large frying pan, heat the oil over a low-medium heat. Add 1/4 cups of the mixture for each pancake (you should be able to fit around 3 pancakes in the pan at one time) and fry for 2-3 minutes each side.
Whilst the pancakes are cooking make your berry compote. Add the berries, water, chia seeds and vanilla bean paste (if using) to a medium pan and cook over a low heat until the berries have softened. This should take around 10-15 minutes. Ensure to stir the mixture every few minutes making sure it doesn’t burn. Once cooked set to one side.
Once a batch of pancakes have cooked, transfer them to a plate lined with some kitchen roll to bolt off any excess oil.
Repeat the process, until all your pancakes are cooked.
Serve the pancakes on one large plate with the compote in a bowl or drizzled over the top. Add the additional toppings if using and let everyone help themselves at the table. Enjoy!
