5 Ingredient Pancakes

Is it acceptable to have pancakes for breakfast 3 days running… Hell Yeah!

Guys, I am OBSESSED with this current recipe. I love pancakes anyway but these super fluffy American style ones have legitimately changed the breakfast food game in our house. 

I’ve been reading a lot about fibre and how we aren’t getting enough of it so made a concentrated effort to try and include it in every meal but I really struggled with breakfast.

If someone says fibre I immediately thought of weetabix, shreddies and other brown foods then get tired at the thought of working my way through a bowl of it and give up… or think of jaw ache from chewing through a tonne of tough veg or grains.

These bad boys are have around 5g of fibre, they’re super tasty and so easy to make! I’ve started using almond milk because Gigi can’t have dairy. You can top them with anything you like too, i’ve had them topped with passion fruit curd, jam, caramelised banana, yogurt and blueberries… the list is endlessly tasty!


INGREDIENTS – makes 6 should serve 2

1 banana
30g oats
30g self raising flour
1 egg
30ml milk (I used almond milk)

1. In a bowl, mash the banana until smooth
2. Add the oats, flour, egg and milk to the banana and mix until properly combined
3. Heat a non stick pan ready to cook your pancakes, keep the heat on low to medium once your pan is hot
4. Spoon a tablespoon of your pancake mixture into the pan and wait until air bubbles appear around the edges before flipping and cooking on the other side for roughly 2 minutes
5. Serve with toppings of your choice and enjoy : ) x

Hi! I'm Bea, I am a food teacher at a secondary school. I live just outside Manchester and all its foodie offerings. This is my blog Bea's Bites Online, I'll be posting all about food and drink with an added smattering of travel. I am lucky enough to have grown up with a variety of influences, my mum is from Zimbabwe, my dad is from Ghana and I grew up in a village in the North West, so food has always been a blend and balance of cultures for me. From being little, food has played a large part in our family, whether it be for celebrations, commiserations or comfort. I began helping out in the kitchen from a young age and was fortunate enough to be given the reigns on occasion from the age of 11. I love being in the kitchen and having the opportunity to create something to make others smile. Whether it be an autumnal main or a gooey dessert :) I am a total believer in happy eating. Food should put a smile on your face no whether it's a weekday, after work dinner or a special occasion. I love following recipes and do think it is sometimes a necessity but I also think that food should be personal and geared towards what you like and I hope this comes across in my blog. I hope you enjoy reading my posts, let me know if you stop by, it will definitely put a smile on my face! Please don't hesitate to get in touch, my email is: If you have any posts you'd like to see then please feel free to email me and I'll do my best : ) Bea x
