My Favorite Healthy Pancakes

Sunday, 1 May 2016

You guys already know what a huge foodie I am and I've recently discovered a pancake recipe that is both clean and healthy, yet so filling and delicious. I've been making these as a Saturday/Sunday morning treat, and as something a little different to my usual porridge. Pancakes are major food-love for me, so to be able to enjoy a healthy version on a regular basis is amazing.

I actually adjusted this recipe from what I use to make my porridge every morning, so it's even easier to put together and I know I'm going to get the same energy out of it too! Obviously these aren't your super-fluffy American pancakes, but they are still soft and go amazing with fruit toppings.

Ingredients: (serves one)

1/3 cup oats
2/3 cup milk 
1/2 a banana 
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon chia seeds 
1 egg 
Coconut oil,  for the pan

Optional: add a scoop of protein powder for extra flavor and to keep you fuller for longer!

Whisk all of the ingredients together in a bowl, or for a quick and easy alternative, place all them in a blender/Nutri-Bullet and let it do the work for you! I do this every time now and it's amazing.

Melt 1/2 a teaspoon of coconut oil in a pan over a medium-high heat. 
The pancakes a bit more delicate than usual, so making smaller sized ones is best. 
Remember to be gentle when you flip it. 

I love serving these with the other half of the banana, some blueberries, and Greek yogurt. By using the Nutri-Bullet it's a really quick process. I usually get my pan heating up while I put all of the ingredients together, and it's all cooked in about 15 minutes. So good!

Let me know if you try out this recipe and what you think of it!
Do you have any healthy pancake recipes you love?

  1. Ohh these look and sound delicious! I don't eat eggs though but it's easily replaced by some soaked chia or flax seeds. I once made pancakes by mixing some flour, almond milk and a banana and they were delicious! But not so easy to fry, they kept falling apart haha! Definitely going to try these ones with the oats :)

    1. I never thought of replacing eggs with soaked chia seeds, what a great idea! That sounds like another great recipe I must try. Haha yeah these ones I make a small-medium size so they don't rip in half, but they haven't broken apart much. I hope you like them!

  3. Why do my banana + egg pancakes never work... I will definitely keep trying though haha

    1. Keep trying! Maybe if you add something else to bind them together? I find the oats in this recipe stops them from breaking : )
