Pancakes, pancakes, pancakes... Who doesn't love them!

Here is a recipe for healthy banana pancakes which you can play around with. I will keep sharing my basic go-to recipes over the next few weeks on here, with lots of suggestions to adjust them to your personal preferences or just to alter to whatever you have in the fridge!


2 eggs

1 small ripe banana

1/2 cup oats

1 tbsp flaxseed

Splash almond milk (or any other plant based milk)

Coconut oil

Optional for flavor, pick 1-3 of these:

1 tsp vanilla essence

1 tsp maca powder

1 tsp cinnamon

2 tsp raw cacao

1 tbsp lemon juice

Toppings used here:


Almond flakes

Coconut yoghurt

- Serves 1 -


Mash the banana in a bowl. Add the eggs and whisk it all together with a splash of almond milk. Then add the oats, flaxseed and flavorings and let it all soak for a few minutes. Heat a good teaspoon of coconut oil in a pan and fry either a few smaller pancakes or one big one until golden!

Tip to flip over a big one: I sometimes slide the pancake out of the pan onto a big plate, place the pan on top and then turn it over so that the pancake doesn't break when flipping as they can get a bit heavy with the oats in them. I've ended up with scrambled pancakes a few too many times!

Then top with anything you like. I usually take some fruit, maybe some nuts, yoghurt and honey or almond butter.
