Madeleine Shaw’s banana oat pancakes

They might not be the most beautiful pancakes to look at but, let me tell you, they taste AMAZING.  Sweet and fluffy and full of oat goodness.

I recently attended an online cook-along with Madeleine Shaw (hosted by Aveeno) and she created these incredible pancakes for us to try.  The caramelised banana is a winner for me but you can basically add your choice of toppings – yoghurt, honey, coconut, chocolate, nut butter, maple syrup, berries, bacon – let your imagination run wild.

Oh, and, a word to the wise, do not expect to eat these alone…



Ingredients (Makes 6)

1 ripe banana
125ml oat milk
50g of porridge oats
75g of oat flour
1 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp maple syrup
Pinch of salt
Coconut oil or butter for cooking

2 ripe bananas, sliced lengthways
1 tbsp maple syrup


To make the pancake batter, roughly mash 1 banana in a bowl and mix through the other ingredients until it forms a batter.

Heat a pan with a tsp or so of coconut oil or butter and place two tbsp of the batter on the pan.  Fry each side until golden (around 2 minutes each side) and repeat with the remaining batter.  I kept my first batch warm in a low oven.

Meanwhile, heat the other 1 tbsp of maple syrup in a separate pan, add the sliced bananas and fry for a few minutes each side until golden brown and cooked through.

Plate the pancakes with the caramelised banana on the side, add toppings to your taste and enjoy!
