recipe: banana breakfast pancakes

Brunch is my favourite meal of the weekend; a time to take life in, chat, relax and make the most of those long mornings. We are usually savoury people for the first meal of the day but these pancakes are a great way to have a sweet-ish plate that still gives you a bit of goodness. You can whip up the batter in no time, so why not give them a go?

Ingredients (makes 8, serves 2-3)

  • 120g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • large pinch of cinnamon
  • 200ml milk
  • 50g sugar
  • 2 mashed bananas
  • Oil and butter to fry
  • honey/agave syrup, berries and yoghurt to serve


1. Mash the banana in a small bowl.

2. Mix the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and sugar in bowl. Add the milk and whisk until smooth. Add the banana and whisk again so that it is well incorporated.

3. Heat a pan on a medium heat and add a small amount of oil and butter to the pan. Use 2-3 tbsp of batter per pancake.

4. Small bubbles should start to appear on the top of each pancake which will indicate that the pancake needs to be flipped. The top of pancake will still be wet so use a palate knife to flip the pancake quickly.

5. Cook the second side for a few minutes until golden.

6. Serve with honey/agave, fresh berries and a dollop of yoghurt.

Tip: these pancakes freeze well so make a large batch and put some in the fridge or freezer for another day!
