One of the things we love most about pancakes is that you can easily get away with serving them for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Just er, maybe not all in the same day...

As much as we love pancakes though, they aren't typically the healthiest choice. Unless you try our healthy pancakes recipe that is! The recipe below swaps flour and milk for bananas and oats for American-style pancakes that take just minutes to make. We love them for a filling breakfast or even lunch.

Healthy pancakes

Prep time: 5 mins

Cook time: 15 mins

Servings: 2


2 bananas

2 eggs

64g rolled or old-fashioned oats

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

pinch of salt


  1. Add the peeled banana, eggs, oats, baking powder and salt into a blender and combine. 2. Blend until the mixture is smooth and combined well. 3. Leave the batter to stand for 10-20 minutes until it has thickened slightly. 4. Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. 5. Fry spoonfuls of the batter until golden brown on both sides. 6. Serve with your toppings of choice. We recommend syrup and your favourite fresh fruit.
