Anyone who knows me, knows I am obsessed with pancakes. They are my first breakfast option, every single time. This recipe is a healthy alternative for you. It hits the spot and is actually good for you!



Today I thought I would share a concoction I love. I actually just freestyled this recipe off another one I had in my head. I added cinnamon and cacao powder for an incredible taste!




  • 6 Minutes
  • 3 Minutes
  • Easy
  • 4 Pancakes
  • 1 person


  1. 1 overripe banana
  2. 4 Tbsp Oatmeal or oats
  3. 1 Tsp cacao powder (I use Isowhey)
  4. 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  5. 1 egg
  6. Berries for serving
  7. Yoghurt for serving


  1. Add all ingredients in to a blender. Blend until smooth. If it looks too runny, add another tablespoon of oatmeal. It should be the same consistency as a normal pancake batter.
  2. I like using a blender as it is easy to pour batter into a fry-pan. If you’d rather use a hand held blender or just a wooden spoon et al, go a head!
  3. Heat up frypan, then turn to a medium / low heat. Lightly grease pan with any type of oil (just so it doesn’t stick).
  4. Pour small circles. They don’t need to be big because they are quite dense, so opt for smaller sizes.
  5. Cook like you would a normal pancake, ensuring side is golden.
  6. Now on to the berries. Place 1/4 cup of berries with a little bit of water in a saucepan. Heat on a low heat until the juices start to form and all berries are heated through. This should only take 1 minute.
  7. Plate up. Serving with yoghurt and berries
  8. Eat it up. Lick the plate.




I hope you have fun making this recipe! It’s so yummy and a great option for Breakfast.
