In collaboration with White’s Oats.
Blender Banana Oat Pancakes are super easy to whip up and make a fantastic breakfast option. They’re naturally sweetened with banana and use no flour. Go heavy on the toppings like maple syrup, chopped banana, blueberries and almonds.
It’s not often that I need an excuse to make pancakes, but it’s been so long since I’ve managed to make any that I’m ready to face-plant myself into a huge pancake stack this Shrove Tuesday. I’ve experimented a lot with different flours when making pancakes and discovered surprisingly that banana and sweet potato pancakes don’t even need any flour at all. However, without flour sometimes they don’t feel as substantial, which is why I’ve been playing around with the addition of porridge oats.
Oats are a key staple in my house, we always have them in the cupboard for a hearty porridge breakfast. I also enjoy adding them to my smoothies to bulk them up. They’re a great source of soluable fibre and a great way to kick start any day.
At the moment I’ve been enjoying White’s Oats that have a lovely nutty texture and creamy taste resulting from their unique milling process. I had the honour of being invited to one of their growers farms in the beautiful Cotswolds for a behind the scenes look a few years ago. I remember it being such a great learning experience and it was obvious to see why they deserve their Great Taste Award.
The finished product are light and fluffy pancakes that taste a lot like banana bread. They’re spiked with both cinnamon and vanilla, two smells and tastes that I love. Plus, the fact that you whizz the batter up in the blender is a massive bonus because it means slightly less washing up.
We’re not particularly fussy about what type of pancakes that we have in our house, but I am swayed more towards crepes this year. When I was a kid I always used to look forward to getting home after school on Pancake Day to get my hit of crepes. It felt like my mum was in a pancake factory as my brother and I would get through loads of them.
If you’re looking for some more inspiration for Pancake Day why not try some of these recipes:

When the pancake batter is combined, heat a little oil in a large frying pan.

When air bubbles begin to appear it's time to flip the pancake over. Cook on the other side for a few minutes. Repeat until all the batter is used up.
