Ingredients banana pancakes with fruit

For the pancake

  • 2 medium ripe bananas (approx 100 g each) 
  • 1 cup (250 g) unsweetened fortified soya milk  
  • ½ cup (62 g) self-raising flour  
  • ½ cup (45 g) porridge oats 
  • ½ tsp (2 g) baking powder  
  • 1 tbsp (10 g) chia seeds 


  • 1 heaped tbsp (18 g) smooth peanut butter 
  • 1 cup frozen (155 g) blueberries  
  • 1tbsp (15 g) maple syrup (other syrup such as agave could be used) 

Recipe serves 2


  1. Blend 1 banana, flour, oats, and milk together. If you don’t have a blender, you could mash the banana well and mix everything together thoroughly. 
  2. Mix in the baking powder and chia seeds and leave it to sit for 5 minutes. 
  3. In the meantime, heat the frying pan on a high heat and once hot, turn down to a medium heat.  
  4. Once the pan is hot, use a ladle to pour the mixture to create your desired size of pancakes. 
  5. Once you see bubbles forming in the batter, you can use a spatula to look underneath to see if the pancake is turning golden brown.  
  6. Once golden brown, flip the pancake to the other side and cook for approximately one minute before removing it from the pan.  
  7. Continue this process until all the mixture has been used. While your pancakes are cooking, you can keep the finished ones warm on a baking tray in a low oven. 
  8. To prepare the blueberries, heat them in a pan with 2 tbsp water and heat until they are soft.  
  9. Stack your pancakes and layer with a drizzle of peanut butter, and top with your blueberries, maple syrup and banana. Feel free to top with other available fruits and enjoy!
