Healthy banana pancakes

(Serves 2)


  • 2 bananas
  • 2 British Lion eggs
  • 30g rolled oats
  • ½tsp baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • A little vegetable oil

  • 2 banana (not too ripe), cut in half length-ways
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • A few walnut pieces


  1. In a blender, blitz together the bananas, eggs, oats, baking powder and salt until combined but not smooth.
  2. Heat a little oil in a frying pan then add two separate ladles of batter into the pan, making two round pancakes.
  3. Fry on one side until golden brown and bubbles start to appear on the surface then flip them over and cook on the other side until golden.
  4. In another frying pan add the butter and fry the bananas cut side down for a couple of minutes. Add the honey and walnuts and allow it to warm through.
