1 vanilla bean, scraped or 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
2 tablespoons honey

Extra banana, strawberries and honey to serve
1. Make the cashew cream. Blend the soaked and drained cashews, vanilla and honey together until smooth. Add some water if the cashew cream is too thick or an extra tablespoon honey if too thin.
2. Whisk or blend all of the pancake ingredients together, except the water, cacao nibs and coconut oil, until smooth. Add water while blending to achieve a thick and smooth consistency. Stir through the cacao nibs.
