Made with wholesome ingredients and topped with a creamy and fruity garnish, these banana pancakes provide a scrumptious and lactose-free option for your breakfast cravings. This straightforward recipe is set to become a morning staple, transforming your mornings from drab to fab in mere minutes.


  • Blend 50 ml yogurt, egg whites, 1 banana, oatmeal, baking powder, vanilla extract, and salt into a smooth batter. Let it sit for 10 minutes, then fold in the blueberries.
  • Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Grease the pan with a bit of coconut oil and pour in the batter (about 50 ml per pancake) – you can cook 2-3 at a time.
  • Cook the pancakes for 2-3 minutes or until bubbles appear on their surface. Flip them over and cook for another 1-2 minutes until they are golden brown. Clean the pan with kitchen paper and use fresh oil each time.
  • Cut the second banana into thin slices. Serve the pancakes in stacks with banana slices in between and top with Greek yogurt or whipping cream. If you have extra blueberries, sprinkle them on top along with coconut flakes and a drizzle of honey.

Banana pancakes are not only a delicious breakfast option but also highly convenient, as they freeze exceptionally well. By scaling up the recipe, you can make a larger batch of pancakes to store in the freezer, so you always have a tasty breakfast treat at your fingertips. Also, preparing in advance saves time on busy mornings.


When cooking the banana pancakes, use a non-stick frying pan or griddle to prevent the batter from sticking to the surface. Remember to grease the surface with a small amount of coconut oil between batches. This will help ensure that the banana pancakes get an even golden-brown hue.


Keep a close eye on the banana pancakes while they cook. When you notice bubbles are forming on the surface and the edges are beginning to set, it is time to flip them over. Gently turn the lactose-free banana pancakes and allow them to cook until they get a beautiful golden-brown colour.
