Banana Pancakes




15 mins



This recipe is probably the easiest recipe I have ever used – in fairness, it’s not even a recipe at all. I have stolen this from a colleague, who put these into the business a few years ago. I always add a pinch of cinnamon whenever i cook with bananas as it enhances the banana flavour, but you don’t have to. I have also made these with a teaspoon of cocoa, as a special treat for my children when they were younger. I would advise you to use a ripe banana as the sugar levels increase as they ripen and you wont need any additional sweetening.
you can also add spoonful of natural yoghurt which works really well there.


  • 1 x Medium egg
  • 1 x banana
  • 1 pinch cinnamon
  • Spoonfull of natural yoghurt (Optional)


  1.  Peel the banana and break up into a bowl.
  2. Add a pinch of cinnamon if using, and then mash really well with a fork.
  3. Break the egg into the same bowl and use the fork to mix together.
  4. Heat a frying pan over a moderate heat and brush with a little vegetable oil.
  5. Spoon some of the banana mixture into the pan and cook until golden.
  6. Flip over and cook until the second side is golden.
