Kids love these and you can feel quite smug when another wheat-free meal has been served to your family. Bananas are rich in inulin, a resistant starch that travels all the way to the large intestine where it becomes food for your good bacteria.

Ingredients

3⁄4 cup banana flour
2 eggs
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
salt to taste
50 ml of A2 milk, water or a milk substitute like coconut/almond or rice milk
ghee or coconut oil

Method

Simply add all the ingredients, except the ghee/coconut oil, to a mixing bowl and beat well until you have a smooth consistency.

Then scoop/pour the batter into a hot pan that has been coated with a ghee/coconut oil. The size of each pancake should more or less resemble that of an American pancake, or ‘crumpet’.

Wait for small bubbles to appear on the surface before turning over, aiming for an attractive golden appearance and then serve with your choice of topping.

Note: Top with fresh berries/bananas, yoghurt and raw honey. For a more savoury option try streaky bacon with some real maple syrup

Rialheim & @home celebrate four years working together with a bespoke new collection of unique tableware jewellery
Tableware jewellery - the new collection by Rialheim for @home

Tableware jewellery - the new collection by Rialheim for @home

Rialheim will make its fourth appearance in selected @home stores countrywide this December. In celebration of our relationship which started in 2015 we have collaborated with the team at @home to bring you a collection of unique tableware jewellery to bring homegrown sophistication to your festive table this season. 

 

As a proud local supplier to @home, we wanted to celebrate the handmade element that occurs in each product by highlighting it even more accentuating each items individuality and allowing the natural power of ceramics to flow more freely. To achieve this we have developed a tableware accessories collection with three different looks. 

Scratched matte black with bronze rim   Each item was individually scratched by our Artisans to ensure the uniqueness of each item. It is our aim that this freeness in making resonates with the @home end user. At the same time we wanted the bronze and matte black to flow naturally into each other. This colour combination is dedicated to our African culture and heritage.

Scratched Sky Grey with bronze rim   This colour combination also features the handcrafted texture, but what we love about the new Sky Grey, featuring in our new collection  Evolution , is the combination of matte black and white that naturally fuse together in the kiln highlighting the handmade texture on each piece.

The Big Bang white and black with an exposed nude clay rim   The Big Bang glazing technique provides each item with a unique look and allowed our glazing team to play with white and matte black. We combined it with the exposed nude terracotta to balance the strong glazing technique. Each piece in this collection is truly one-of-a-kind.

“Our journey with Rialheim has been a truly inspirational one. Not only is it amazing to see a young local talented brand turn into an international success story but their passion for developing and inspiring people is closely aligned with @home’s core values. We are very proud to be associated with such amazing people.”

-      Lelani Adamson, @home Buying Manager.

 

As Rialheim celebrates six years of #DreamBelieveFly we felt it relevant to celebrate the people whose skilful hands create the uniqueness in each product. This collection is a true reflection of each artisan’s talent and the magic of African Clay. We salute the team members who have grown from a gardener to one of our best artisans in the studio today, the person who started as a packer in our studio to heading up our dispatch department today, just to name a few amazing journeys. As a company, we believe in all of their dreams and are extremely proud of the development so far and excited to see this evolve in further as their skills develop.

Rialheim regularly talks about the pivotal role @home played in our journey as a company. It’s this partnership that has allowed more people access to our products and story by featuring us in their stores. It’s a partnership that has allowed Rialheim to simply move beyond an artisanal brand while opening doors that we were only dreaming of. This has enabled us to tackle big projects, both locally and internationally. 

The new Rialheim collection will be available in these @home stores from 6 December:

Cape Town: V&A Waterfront, Cavendish Square, Century City, Tygervalley, V&A Breakwater Centre

Durban: Gateway

Johannesburg: Design Quarter, Mall of Africa, Melrose Arch, Sandton
