Banana and chocolate pancake recipe

1 medium banana

30g flour of your choice

3 tablespoons of liquid egg white

2-3 tablespoons of milk

Cacao powder or cocoa powder

Greek yoghurt

Berries of your choice

Oil spray eg rapeseed oil to cook


Mash the banana with the egg white in a bowl (or blitz the ingredients in a blender).

Stir in the flour.

Add cacao or cocoa according to taste - 2-3 teaspoons or more for a more intense flavour.

Add 2 tablespoons of milk and mix it in well. Add another if the mixture is still dry.

Heat a non stick pan spritzed with cooking oil.


When the pan is hot, pour the mixture into the centre of the pan (it will be a thick mixture - you might need to scrape it out of the bowl!) Gently distribute the mixture around the pan with the back of a spoon.

Cook over a medium heat until the pancake is setting then gently turn to cook the other side.

Turn out onto a plate and add a generous dollop of greek yoghurt and a couple of handfuls of berries.


I used liquid egg white to increase the protein content but you could just use whole egg and you could use plain or self raising flour, white, wholemeal or a mixture.

This makes a lovely weekend breakfast!
