Course: Breakfast, Dessert
Servings: 1


  • 1/2 cup rolled oats uncooked
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 banana
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup blueberries – fresh or frozen optional

Topping Ingredients

  • 9 large strawberries halved
  • Plain Greek yoghurt
  • 2 blueberries
  • 1 raspberry
  • Cacao nibs
  • Peanut butter


  • Mix the oats in a blender or food processor for 15 seconds, or until it resembles fine flour.
  • Add the eggs, banana and baking powder, and blend.
  • Pour the mixture into a large bowl, add the blueberries and if possible, leave to sit for 3-4 minutes. This allows the mixture to thicken slightly and I find they turn out much better.
  • Heat a lightly oiled saucepan and add a scoop of mixture, enough to form a large pancake and a light layer of batter. Fry on each side for around 1 minute or until golden brown.

Topping Directions

  • Start by spreading a light layer of peanut butter across the top and bottom third of your pancake, under where the toppings will sit. Then, spread a layer of yoghurt on top, add the strawberries and finish off with the eyes, nose and mouth. Et voila!
