Banana and Oat Pancakes

Processed with VSCO with s2 preset

Pancakes are nostalgic for me –  I remember my mum whipping up a batch every weekend when I was younger, and me carelessly covering them in all the syrups I could find and sprinkles in every shape and colour. I have grown up from those days, and my flavour palette might have matured, but that does not mean I still don’t enjoy a fluffy stack on a Sunday!

These pancakes are deliciously fluffy and light, extremely substantial as they are made using a base of oat and buckwheat flours, and customizable so that you can add whatever flavours you like! They are also kid-approved, as even my very fussy 10-year-old sister loves them!

The beauty of this recipe is how convenient it is – you can find all of the ingredients in your pantry and have these pancakes ready on the table for the whole house to enjoy in under 15 minutes (you can even use a blender to make the job easier!)


Makes 6 pancakes

40g oats

20g buckwheat flour 

1 medium ripe banana

150ml plant milk (i used almond)

3 tablespoons maple syrup

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon chia seeds 

Pinch of salt 


Place the oats and buckwheat flour in a blender and blitz until a smooth flour forms (you can swap the buckwheat flour for oats if you don’t have it).

Next, add the banana, plant milk, maple, cinnamon, vanilla, baking powder, and baking soda and blend until a smooth and thick batter forms.

Finally, using a spoon, stir in the salt and chia seeds and let this mix rest whilst you heat your pan.

Add a teaspoon of coconut oil to a large non-stick pan and let it heat up. Once hot, pour in as many pancakes as you can fit (i usually do around 3). Let these fry on medium-high heat for around 3-5 minutes, when bubbles begin to form on the surface flip the pancakes and fry on the other side for 3 minutes. Repeat this with the remaining batter.
