Food: Banana & Oat Pancakes.

It’s Sunday, a day when you get to wake up a little later, lounge around, and eat this thing people call “brunch”. (Breakfast/Lunch).

Being well and truly back on the healthy eating wagon, well I drag my boys along for the ride too.

They love these pancakes, and shhhhh don’t tell anyone – but they are low fat, low sugar, and pretty damn tasty.

They take 5 minutes to make, and are super easy.


Banana  & Oat Pancakes

Ingredients:

2 eggs

60g porridge oats

2 bananas

Mixed berries 

Cinnamon 

Mixed spice 

3 tablespoons of almond milk.

Method:

1) Mix the oats, and egg together. Mash 1 banana and mix this in to the bowl until you have a pancake consistency. Add a tablespoon of each spice. Add 3 tablespoons of milk and mix again.

2) In a small frying pan ladle one scoop into a hot- pan, and fry on each side for 90 seconds. A decent pan is key, ( if you don’t have a non-stick pan, use a little butter to prevent sticking), the key to flipping over is keep going round the rim with a spatula, so it doesn’t stick.

3) This should make around 5-6 pancakes, layer up, and within each layer smear some low-fat Greek yoghurt, (I love Yeo Valley with Honey.)

4) Slice the remaining banana, and add to the plate with some mixed berries, and more yoghurt. To finish, sprinkle some cinnamon over the dish.

5) Tuck in!

P.S. You can also make these in bulk, and freeze for a rainy day.

This recipe easily feeds two adults,  and one small – but very hungry child. Enjoy.
