I LOVE making banana pancakes. After multiple attempts I've finally got them down to a T and they're a breakfast I make rather regularly now. Naturally sweet, light and oh so tasty to eat; they're a great light breakfast that are also naturally gluten free. As much as I love these pancakes somedays they aren't enough by themselves. For days when I'm doing (or have done) a longer or tougher workout I need something a bit more sustainable. or suitable for days where I've got a bigger workout. This is where the oats come in. They help thicken the pancakes while creating something that's a bit more substantial. Adding oats does mean these are no longer gluten free, unless GF oats are used.

All you'll need (to make around 4/5 medium pancakes):
- 1 brown/ing medium banana
- 2 eggs
- 25g of oats (you can add more oats if you're looking for thicker pancakes)

Heat a saucepan over a medium heat with a small amount of oil (I used some coconut oil). Mash the banana well, removing as many of the lumps as possible. Whisk two eggs in a bowl and add the banana. Once combined it's time to add the oats. Mix thoroughly and then it's time to cook! Use a couple of spoonfuls of the mixture for each pancake and make sure to spread it well in the pan. They'll take slightly longer than usual pancakes and are a bit more delicate, so take your time with them. Once the top is set then it's ready to flip. And when both sides are done it's time to eat! I really enjoy just eating these plain but top them as you like! If I've got a bit more time I'll add some slightly thawed frozen berries. 

And here's a quick video showing you how I made them! In the video I add the eggs to the banana and then whisk - but it really doesn't matter which way you do it. 

I'm going to try to add more videos over the next coming months to my YouTube channel so if you check it out please do let me know. Also let me know what you think of this recipe and if you would like to see anymore from me in the future!

  1. Oh these sound amazing! I love pancakes but they're too bad to eat often - will try these as a healthy alternative :)
