Recipe: Banana & Oats Flapjacks | 9Lives
Reading Time: 2 min

This is a fun recipe to try out over the holidays, or on a weekend when you have a little bit more time. It is super easy to make and seriously delicious. Best of all though, it is actually good for you!

By the way, if you make this for one it is also really quick. You can even prep the batter the night before and whip it up in the morning if you are in a rush.

I have tried it with a few combinations of dressings (if you follow me on Instagram you’ll have seen this), but this is definitely my favourite.

Try it out and let me know what you think!

Banana & Oat Flapjacks with Blueberries and Yogurt

Serves 4

Cooking time: 45 minutes


For the flapjacks

325 ml (1 and a half cups) oats – instant, standard or rolled oats will all work

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

3 ripe bananas

3 eggs

Coconut oil to fry

For the peanut butter dressing

2 tbsp peanut butter (or any nut butter)

50ml almond milk (or any milk of your choice)

Honey to taste (optional)

To serve

2 handfuls of blueberries

A few spoonfuls of Bulgarian, Greek or Plain yogurt

A handful flaked almonds, toasted


For the peanut butter dressing

Combine the peanut butter and milk until you have a smooth, soft buttery consistency. Taste and add a little honey if you want it sweeter.

For the blueberries

Add the blueberries to a warm pan with a splash of water. Let this cook away while you continue with the flapjacks.

For the flapjacks

Add all the dry ingredients to a food processor and blitz till fine and well combined. If you don’t have a food processor, use instant oats. The flapjacks will have a coarser texture but still taste delicious.

Add the banana and eggs and blitz till the batter is smooth.

Put a pan on a medium heat and add coconut oil. Once the pan is hot, ladle in the batter. Don’t make the flapjacks too large or they will be difficult to flip – I find palm-sized is perfect. Leave them on one side for 1 – 2 minutes until they loosen from the pan. Give them a little shove with the spatula to check. Then flip them over and fry on the other side until golden.


To serve, I placed the flapjacks at the center of the table with the peanut butter dressing, yogurt, blueberries and toasted almond flakes on the side. Let each person stack their plates.
