"I often make banana pancakes at the weekend after we've been to the gym. Bananas are a great pre- or post-workout snack because they give you a quick burst of energy, and they replenish the potassium lost from sweating during your workout session, helping to maintain muscle and nerve function. Add some protein powder to supercharge these pancakes." Madeline Shaw - A Year of Beautiful Eating 


  1. Whisk the egg in a bowl and mash the banana into it. Add the oats and stir well. The mixture should be thicker than a crepe batter but thinner than a batter for a cake.

    • 1 Egg (Large Free Range)
    • 1 Banana
    • 4 tbsp Oats (or Protein Powder)
  2. Heat the coconut oil in a small frying pan over a medium heat. Wait until the pan is hot, then spoon in 2 tablespoons of the mixture. Fry the pancake for 2 minutes on one side, then turn over and fry for a further minute or so, until cooked through. Repeat with the rest of the mixture. 

    • 3 tbsp Coconut Oil
  3. To serve the pancakes, drizzle over melted dark chocolate and top with berries, yoghurt and maple syrup.

    • 50g Dark Chocolate (Melted)
    • A Handful Fresh Berries (Chopped)
    • 3 tbsp Natural Yoghurt
    • A Drizzle Maple Syrup
