Banana Oat Pancakes

Breakfast can easily get quite boring and standard every day. I find I’m serving my bambinos either porridge or Weetabix a little too often. So I now try to give them something a bit different for breakfast a couple of times a week.

These pancakes are so yummy and filling. They are also ideal for baby led weaning. I make these pancakes a few times a month for the whole family. The oats will help to keep you and your bambinos fuller for longer. Drizzle with some honey or maple syrup to subtly sweeten them. I like to serve with fresh strawberries.

Yield: 10

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes


  • 100g rolled or old fashioned oats
  • 100ml whole milk
  • 1/2 large banana
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tbsp plain or greek yogurt
  • 1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • pinch of ground cinnamon
  • butter for frying
  • honey or maple syrup (optional)
  • strawberries, chopped or sliced (optional)


  1. Add all the ingredients, except the honey and strawberries (if using),
    to a compact blender and blitz until you reach a smooth batter consistency.
  2. Heat a small knob of butter in a frying pan and add a tablespoon of the batter per pancake. (I was able to make 4 at a time in my large frying pan).
  3. Cook for 3-4 mins until golden brown then flip and cook the other side for three minutes or until golden brown. When you flip the pancake gently press down using a spatula to help ensure the pancake cooks evenly.
  4. Drizzle with honey or maple syrup and top with berries if you like. Serve immediately.


Remember honey should only be given to children over 1 due to the risk of bacterial spores present which can cause botulism.

Rolled oats are the same as old fashioned oats.
