Ready in 22 minutes, it's a cheap and easy recipe that ensures no-one need miss out on the pancake fun.


For the batter:

  • 100g ground oats (grind oats in blender leaving some texture)
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp xanthan gum if sensitive substitute (1 tbsp ground flax mixed with 1 tbsp water)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 100 ml almond or other nut milk
  • 2 tbsp oil, plus extra for frying
  • Fruit (optional)

For the salted caramel:

  •   1 can of coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • Pinch of salt




  1. For the batter:  Melt 2 tbsp of oil on the hob or in a microwave until melted. Add the other batter ingredients and mix until smooth.
  2. Heat a little bit of coconut oil in a frying pan and spoon 1-2tbsp of pancake mix into the pan. Smooth into a circle with the back of your spoon. Fry for 2-3mins on either side, or until they have small air holes and have started to colour. Repeat for the rest of the batter.
  3. For the salted caramel: Open coconut milk can and add to pan, before stirring in the coconut sugar and salt. Boil down for 7- 8 min.
