Fat little banana pancakes

You should always have bananas in your pantry! They’re healthy, yummy and they can be used to replace sugar in many desserts. In desserts, use nice and ripe, yellow, or even brown bananas. I even let them go brown on purpose. To demonstrate my love for this piece of fruit, I’ve created the series ‘3x ode to the banana’. Three super simple, sweet banana recipes, without sugar, brimming with potassium. I’ll bet you’ll get addicted to bananas as well! 🙂

Nummer 1: Fat mini banana pancakes
Nummer 2: Banana rice pudding with raisins and cinnamon
Nummer 3: Banana and Nutella nice cream

This is the first recipe I created for my brother Kobus. After our discussion on our annoyances with recipes (see: About), I stormed into the kitchen and cooked up these pancakes. They’re incredibly easy, and healthy! No sugar and gluten free. Kobus now whips himself up a batch regularly.

Fat little banana pancakes
Prep Time 10-15 min
Prep Time 10-15 min
  1. Peel the banana, break into chunks into a bowl. Squash to a mush with a fork. Small chunks are no problem.
  2. Put a pan on high heat and add the butter or oil.
  3. Add the oats to the banana mush, along with a pinch of salt. Mix until you have an evenly mixed batter. You can’t compare this to liquid pancake batter. It should be thick.
  4. Once the pan is heated, turn down the heat to medium. Take a tablespoon of batter and scoop it into the pan. Squash it down slightly, so it can bake all the way through. Repeat until your pan is full. Make sure the pancakes don’t touch.
  5. Let them bake until brown. About 5 minutes per side.
  6. Take them out and put a new batch in the pan, if you’ve still got some batter left. Repeat until it’s all gone. Feast on!
Recipe Notes

Tip: You can eat the pancakes hot or cold.

Tip: Serve with (soy)yogurt, fruit, marmelade, or cocoa paste, or just eat with your hands.

Jomme couldn’t wait for the bananas to ripen so he tried this recipe with green bananas. De pancakes came out perfect, but they weren’t sweet enough, so he added some sugar. Next time, he’ll go for ripe ones! 🙂

Sil made one big pancake and served it with fresh raspberries! Delicious! And I quote: “This recipe is a piece of cake!” 🙂

Kobus’ tip: Double the recipe and take the extra pancakes to work as a lunch treat!
