Prep and cooking time – 10 mins

Servings – 2 (1 serving = 2 pancakes)

Calories per serving – 251kcal



75g whole oats

1 tsp baking powder

1 small pinch salt

1 medium banana

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

40ml skimmed milk or milk alternative

160g blueberries

low calorie cooking spray



Add all of the ingredients into a blender except the blueberries and blend until smooth. The batter will be thick, but pourable. If too thick add a dash of milk and blend again.


Spray a large frying pan with low calorie cooking spray and place on a medium heat. Ladle approximately 2 tbsp of the pancake mixture into the pan. If necessary spread out with the ladle but remember you want these to be nice and fluffy!


Immediately add a few blueberries on top on the pancakes, cook for 1-2 minutes and flip over with a spatula. Cook for another 1-2 minutes, you want both sides to be nicely browned and cooked through. 


Transfer the cooked pancakes to a plate and repeat the frying process until you have used all the batter.


Eat warm with a sprinkling of extra blueberries!
