Why Is This Banana Pancake Recipe Healthy?

What makes this recipe even healthier is it’s low in refined sugar and packed full of fibre, plus it contains healthy fats and wholegrains so it’s a big tick for looking after your gut.

What I love about these healthy pancakes with bananas is they are low-effort in the mornings. Once the batter is mixed it only takes a few minutes to cook, while it sizzles away smelling amazing, I can feed the cats, empty the dishwasher and make myself a cuppa, ready to attack the day.

What Equipment Do You Need To Make This Healthy Banana Pancake Recipe?

Just a nonstick frying pan with a handle suitable for your hob and grill. I enjoy using my Tefal pan for many dishes including this banana pancake recipe, the pancakes slide off the surface easily.

Are Banana Pancakes Healthy?

The word 'healthy' is relative to your perspective of what 'healthy' means, but in my opinion yes they are and here's why: Oats are a wholegrain, so they haven't been tampered with and support efficient digestion, they also are packed full of fibre. The banana provides fibre, potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin C, and various antioxidants and phytonutrients, which some claim have benefits including reducing inflammation. Eggs provide protein, and vitamins B2, B12, and D.

I sometimes use Applied Nutrition Vegan Protein as it contains no sunflower oil or sugar, but this one from My Protein has amazing flavour!

So will you be adding this Healthy Banana Pancake Recipe To Your Weekly Breakfast List?

You can experiment with this recipe very easily, it's super robust - you can't really mess it up. Sometimes I throw in blueberries to the batter so they go gooey as they get hot mmmm. If you want the pancakes fluffier, add more protein powder and fewer oats.

I know not everyone is a fan of dried fruit like raisins, including my good friend Corinne, Copy Editor for this blog. Each time I add a recipe with raisins, she's not impressed ha! So if you're a 'Corinne', feel free to omit the dried fruit.

Feel free to share your variations on this recipe with me and my food-based Instagram profile: @foodwholefood. If you're in need of some delicious organic fresh fruit then don't forget to take a look at Riverford too!

Happy baking!
