As it’s pancake day or Shrove Tuesday, I’ve decided to share the love and let you know about one tasty alternative recipe that I pilfered from my foodie friend Laura Tilt (@NutriTilty). Why? Well, they’re so quick and easy that even a lazy chef like me can whip them up in minutes. Nutritious and delicious, here’s a banana pancake recipes pilfered from my foodie friends.

You can count me in the ‘ban the banana’ at races gang, The thought of chewing on furry fruit while running a race makes my stomach turn, not to mention the questions of health and safety around the banana skins (Paris Marathon organisers take note). Let’s just say that raw bananas are not my pick of running fuel (although I know that they are probably one of the best choices around). But I’m all over them when mashed up in a smoothie or mixed with raw egg to create a sweet and sensational pancake.
Laura’s two ingredient banana pancakes are so simple, even I could make up the recipe blindfolded. All you do is crack two eggs in a bowl, add a mashed up banana until smooth, heat up your non-stick pan with little grease, then gently pour a blini-sized dollop of the mixture into said pan. Serve once firm with Greek yoghurt and blueberries or a topping of your choice. YUM.
- Great way to get rid of brown bananas
- Packed with protein
- Awesome anytime of day but particularly as a tasty dessert
Please Note: Do not try to make full-sized pancakes out of this recipe, these pancakes are best served tiny and mighty.
