Banana and chia seed pancakes

Lovely, scrumptious banana and chia seed pancakes are a perfect dish for a family breakfast. The banana adds extra sweetness and chia seeds create nice crunch and are a great source of omega 3. This is a nice and easy recipe and will make you around 7 medium sized pancakes.

Here's what to do.

You will need:
1 banana
1 egg
125g of plain flour, you can also use wholemeal
300ml of milk, plant milk works nice too, I really like almond milk
1 table spoon of chia seeds
coconut oil for frying
for toppings use maple or date syrup, natural yogurt, fresh fruit or chocolate spread

In a large mixing bowl first sieve in the flour, then add egg, lightly combine. Pour the milk slowly and start whisking. Mash the banana with a fork and add to the pancake batter. As a last ingredient add chia seeds. Prepare a medium sized pan and melt a bit of coconut oil, just so the pancake doesn't stick. Pour enough mixture to cover around the edges of the frying pan, but do not make it too thick. Lightly brown on one side then flip the pancake to the other side.
Make sure it's cooked throughout, take off heat then repeat this process to make more pancakes.

You can top your pancakes with anything really, but my favourite option is a dollop of natural yogurt, fresh fruit and a nice coat of maple syrup. Yum!!


  1. Just made this for breakfast - my family loved it! Will definitely add to our favourite weekend breakfasts. I found that needed to add slightly more flour :) Thanks Kasia xxx
