Banana Oat Pancakes with Greek Yoghurt and Fruit

Banana Oat Pancakes with Greek Yoghurt and Fruit

October 31, 2018

Cooking time: 10 minutes

Ingredients: 

  • Wholegrain oats, ½ - ¾ cup 
  • Banana, mashed, ½ -1  medium sized
  • Milk of choice, 30-50ml
  • Greek yoghurt,  2-3 tbsp. 
  • Egg, whole, 1
  • Baking powder, 1 tsp.
  • Vanilla bean extract, 1 cap full (optional)
  • Extra virgin olive oil, 1-2 tsp. for pan

To serve with:

  • Greek Yoghurt, 3-4 tbsp. 
  • Berries, or other favourite fruit, fresh or frozen, ½ - 1 cup

Method:

  1. In a medium sized bowl combine oats, mashed banana, milk, yoghurt, egg, baking powder and vanilla bean extract until smooth.
  2. Heat a non stick fry pan to medium to high heat with small amount of oil and pour mixture onto pan. If you have a large enough pan you may be able to fit 3 separate pancakes. 
  3. Allow to cook through until you see bubbles rise and start to burst and then flip with a spatula.
  4. Allow to cook through on the other side for 1 minute until removing from pan.
  5. Top with yoghurt and berries. 

My top tips:

  • For a dairy free alternative use a calcium fortified soy, coconut or almond milk and yoghurt. 
  • For a sweeter style yoghurt add cinnamon or another drop of vanilla bean extract.
