Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 banana
  • ½ cup oats
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon

Method

  • In a wide bowl, mash the banana very well with a fork. Add the eggs & whisk together until well combined.
  • Add the oats to a blender/bullet and blend to a flour consistency (you can also skip the blender & just use fine/quick oats).
  • Add the oat flour and cinnamon to the mixture and stir to combine.
  • Heat a little oil/butter in a non- stick pan. Pour in half the mixture for a large pancake.
  • Cook for 2-3 mins on each side. Allow to cool for a few mins before tucking in.

Serving suggestion: press blueberries into the pancake during cooking or serve berries on the side with a drizzle of maple syrup.
