But I Don’t Even Like Bananas! Part Two…

But I Don’t Even Like Bananas! Part Two…

I know what you’re thinking. Banana pancakes are just too Plain Jane. Agreed. So we’ve up’d the ante. Nutella banana pancakes. ‘How can one extra ingredient change everything?’ I hear you ask. ‘Have you never tried Nutella?’ is my response.

Maybe not everyone licks it from the spoon like I do but this recipe is undeniably delushious. These pancakes have sailed into my #1 favourite pancake spot. And I’m the girl that doesn’t even like bananas…


  • 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
  • 2 tbsp Nutella


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
  • Stir through two tablespoons of Nutella – for a fetching marble effect, don’t over mix. 

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. Serve with ice cream, squirty cream or just more Nutella…
