Prep 5 mins | Cook 5 mins | Makes 6-8 Pancakes 

Ingredients

Dry ingredients:

  • 3 tbsp plain white flour
  • 3 tbsp jumbo porridge oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp caster sugar (optional)
  • Handful of raisins (optional)

Wet ingredients:

  • 3 tbsp natural yoghurt
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 1 large or 2 small ripe bananas, mashed with a fork
  • 1 large free-range egg
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 tbsp melted butter or sunflower oil to cook

Method

  1. Combine the dry ingredients and raisins in a mixing bowl.
  2. In another bowl, briefly beat together the wet ingredients, with a fork, until combined. Add to the dry mixture and gently beat until just combined.
  3. Leave the batter to stand for 5 minutes.
  4. Heat a frying pan or pancake pan and with a little oil and/or melted butter. The pancakes brown quickly, so keep the pan on a low heat. Spoon tablespoons of batter into the pan to form 8-10 cm diameter cakes and cook for a couple of minutes. When little bubbles appear on the surface, flip the panckaes and cook on the other side for another couple of minutes until well risen and cooked through.
  5. Serve hot with your favourite toppings – we like Greek yoghurt, almond butter and fruit – or sprinkle with sugar, wrap in foil and take with you if you’re racing away from home.
