Banana and oat pancakes

Without doubt this is the most viewed, the most liked and the most popular recipe on my website and Instagram page.  Banana and oat pancakes.

It also happens to be our favourite recipe of all time too!

It really is such a simple recipe and my children can easily whip up the mix themselves now ready for me to help them fry almost every Saturday morning.

You can vary the flavour by adding cacao powder instead of cinnamon and serve with bananas, a drizzle of chocolate, or honey or just eat them as they are.
