Porridge Oats and Banana Pancakes

It is not every day that I wake up wanting pancakes but today I did.  In truth I had been thinking about making these pancakes for a couple of days and today I finally gave in and decided to make them.  I think they took less than 5 minutes to prepare and cook which is not bad for first thing in the morning.

I have been wanting to make a pancake that really summed up breakfast for me – something that was filling and which involved fruit so you don’t feel too guilty when you eat them.  My answer came in the form of porridge and banana pancakes and I can assure you that they tasted delicious and they kept me full all morning.

Porridge Oats and Banana Pancakes

Ingredients:  (makes 4 small pancakes)

  • ¼ cup / 30g plain flour
  • ¼ cup / 30g porridge oats
  • ½ an individual pot / 60g natural yogurt (plus a little to serve with)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • ½ a banana sliced into thin pieces (plus a few slices to serve with)
  • 1-2tsp runny honey
  • vegetable oil (for cooking with)

Steps:

1.  Heat a little oil in a frying pan whilst you prepare the pancake batter.

2.  Whisk the egg and the yogurt together in a bowl.

3.  Add the flour, porridge oats and sugar to the wet mix and whisk well.

4.  Spoon a little of the batter into the frying pan and drop a few of the banana pieces into the batter mix.  Cook each pancake for 1-2 minutes on each side.  Depending on the size of your frying pan you may be able to cook more than one pancake at a time.

5.  Serve the pancakes with some fresh banana, a spoonful of yogurt and a little honey drizzled over the top.  Enjoy!
