Recipe 60: Healthy Banana Oats Pancake

In our search for healthy recipes, we all must have ended up with tasteless food at least once in our cooking life.

But I guarantee you that this recipe is healthy, tasty and easy to make.

It is not the gluten- free version as it does use a portion of flour.

The combination of banana and cinnamon gives it a heavenly flavor and smell.

The recipe goes .

Ingredients for 3 Servings:

  1. 1/2 cup or 80gms rolled oats (click to buy Quaker Rolled Oats)
  2. 3/4 cup or 100gms all-purpose flour
  3. 75gms milk
  4. 40gms melted butter (you can reduce the amount if you want it more healthy)
  5. 2 medium ripe bananas
  6. 1 large egg
  7. 2 tbsp. honey
  8. 1 tbsp. flavourless vegetable oil
  9. 1 tsp. baking powder
  10. 1/2 tsp. cinnamon powder (click to buy Urban Platter Cinnamon Powder)
  11. A pinch of salt


Mash bananas with a fork.
Mix honey into the mashed bananas.
Keep aside.
Break the egg in a bowl and whisk it while adding the butter.
In another bigger bowl, mix the dry ingredients like flour, oats, baking powder, cinnamon powder and salt.
Gradually pour the egg mixture into the dry ingredients.
Mix slowly with a hand blender.
Add milk gradually till it gains a not-too-thick but not-too-runny consistency.
Put a pan on medium heat.
Put some oil using a brush (this reduces oil consumption).
Fry a spoonful of the batter and wait till tiny bubbles form on top.
Flip to cook both sides.
Your pancakes are ready to be eaten as breakfast or snack.
Feel free to drizzle some honey or butter it up with some sugar sprinkled on top.
Enjoy when hot!!

Hello from the Land of Santa Claus!
Professionally I am a Conservation Architect. That means I spend most of my time snooping around dilapidated and haunted buildings. I love the smell of old damp lime washed walls. Sorry to put you off with all the unpleasant details.
Now for the fun facts. I have been living in this extremely cold socialist country (its Finland, for the people who are still guessing!) for a few years now. But I was also in London doing my second post-graduation (University College London) and working on a few projects for the last 1.5 years.
Being a culture enthusiast, I have travelled far and wide in Europe learning the culture and trying the unique local cuisines. Yes, I am a foodie too!
In SpicesnSecrets I will be sharing some of my experiences for similar lost souls in an alien country.
Cheers to life!
