Banana Pancakes. This pancake says ‘I like to wear flip flops all year round’. Our banana pancake recipe is quick and easy, and uses porridge oats for a filling, but not heavy, pancake. The perfect pancake for brunch with your partner in crime.


Serves 4

  • 130g of Plain Flour
  • 20g of Porridge Oats
  • 1 tsp of Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp of Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 1/4 tsp of Salt
  • 2 tbsp of Caster Sugar
  • 1 Large Over-Ripe Banana
  • 250ml of Semi-Skimmed Milk
  • 1 tbsp of Melted Butter
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon

Serve with:

  • Chocolate sauce, Nutella, maple syrup or pecans


Whisk Up Your Batter

  • First cut your banana into bite sized chunks and then mash in a large bowl with a fork until gooey
  • Add the flour, porridge oats, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, salt, sugar, milk, melted butter, egg, vanilla and cinnamon to the mashed banana
  • Mix everything together with a whisk

Cooking Your Pancakes

  • Heat a frying pan to medium-high heat. Add a little butter and allow to melt.
  • Add a large spoon of mixture to your pan – use the back of a spoon to smooth the pancake into a circle shape as it cooks. Let the underside cook until browned – you should see small bubbles appearing on the surface.
  • Turn the pancake with your spatula and cook the other side until lightly coloured. Because of the oats and the banana, these pancakes are a little dense to cook but don’t worry – they’ll be light and fluffy to eat. It just means you might need to limber up before flipping them.
  • Stack the pancakes on a plate and keep them warm in the oven if needs be.
