When you need a bit of something sweet for breakfast.

My tastebuds were yearning a treat this morning without scuppering my food regime.

Banana Fritters/pancakes was the solution and these were delicious. This batch made five 3” pancakes and I am stuffed. Feel free to adjust for a full fat version.


  • 40g rolled oats. (can be used as they are but I grind mine in a coffee grinder)
  • 2 bananas (1 mashed and 1 sliced)
  • 1 egg
  • 100 ml 0% fat yoghurt (natural for soft pancakes and Greek for firmer pancakes)
  • 1 tsp sweetener
  • 3 tbsp 0% sugar/fat pancake syrup (I used Walden Farms)


  • Mash the banana in a mixing bowl.
  • Add egg, oats, 50ml yoghurt and mix thoroughly.
  • Heat non stick frying pan and cook in batches. They will hold less well than regular pancakes so aim to cook fewer at a time to allow for smooth quick turns. Wait for bubbles coming through as you would do with American style pancakes.
  • Serve on a plate with sliced banana, the remaining yoghurt and the pancake syrup.
