Banana pancakes with blueberry compote

Hi Everyone!

I love pancakes. Don’t you?

In Belgium we often have them as an afternoon treat or even as dinner. Mostly with sweet topings like sugar, honey, chocolate paste but sometimes with a savoury filling like cheese, ham and cheese,…

But I love them for breakfast too. Especially the nice small, thick ones.

A few weeks ago, I was watching one of “my” cooking channels and saw these banana pancakes being made.

What a good idea, I thought! Fruits, little fat, no added sugar, lower in carbs, why not try it?

So this morning, I finally did (changing the original recipe a bit) and they were yummy.

Have a go at them too and let me know what you think.

Happy baking.



Banana pancakes with blueberry compote

Ingredients (makes 4 pancakes)

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • A few gratings of nutmeg
  • 1 medium banana (ripe)
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup blueberries
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp + ½ tsp vanilla paste
  • 1 tbsp olive oilIMG_7011


  • Put the oats, cinnamon and nutmeg in a food processor. Turn it on for 30 seconds twice, or until the oats have become floury.IMG_7012
  • In a bowl, mash the banana, add the egg and 1 tsp of vanilla paste and stir very well.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet, stir, add the olive oil and stir again.
  • Bake the pancakes, using 2 heaped tbsp of the batter for one, on a medium heat for about 2 minutes on each side.
    You’ll know when to turn them, when little air bubbles start to appear.
  • Meanwhile warm the blueberries on a medium heat but don’t forget about your pancakes!
  • When they begin to scream (you’ll know: they start to pop and make a screaming noise), take them off the heat and add the water. Be careful: the pan will be hot and will let off steam!!!
  • Put the pan back on the stove and let the berries bubble for about 2 minutes.
  • Take it off again, pour in ½ tsp of vanilla paste and mash them a bit before transferring them to a serving bowl.
  • If you like you can have your pancakes with some maple syrup.
