Breakfast Dessert Recipes

Porridge Pancakes

A delicious and easy way to start the day. Perfect for Pancake Day, or make a stash for on the go. Naturally sweet from the banana, these have no added sugar. You could further flavour the pancakes with fruits such as blueberries, or use dark chocolate chips for an extra sweet kick.

Use gluten-free oats to make this gluten-free, or dairy-free by using a milk alternative and yoghurt alternative (I have used soya products in this recipe).

Porridge Pancakes

Serves 2


  • 1 large banana
  • 1 egg
  • 100g rolled oats
  • 50ml milk of choice
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • Oil for frying

To serve

  • 150g strawberries
  • 80g raspberries
  • 160g yoghurt (I have used soya yoghurt)
  • A few mint leaves


  • Mash the banana in a bowl with a fork till you have very small lumps.
  • Add the remaining ingredients, except for the oil, and mix well.
  • Heat a frying pan over a low heat.
  • Wipe 1/4 tsp of oil around the pan before adding spoonfuls of the mixture, spaced out. You should be able to make 6-8 pancakes from the batter.
  • Cook for 2 minutes, before flipping and cooking for a further 2 minutes.
  • Serve in stacks with yoghurt, berries and mint.
