Servings 8 pancakes


  • 1 frying pan


  • 1 large ripe banana approximately 1 cup mashed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1.5 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup spinach fresh or frozen
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup milk of choice
  • 1 TBSP cooking oil ghee, butter or coconut oil


  • Add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Let the mixture sit for 10-15 minutes, this will help the pancakes thicken up
  • Heat a frying pan over medium heat, and add your ghee or coconut oil. Once the pan is hot, add 2-3 TBSP of the batter to the frying pan for each pancake, and cook for around 2 minutes, until the pancakes rise a little and you see some bubbles forming.
  • Flip the pancakes and cook until golden brown underneath.


These pancakes take a little longer than a traditional pancake to cook through, so if you find they are burning and not cooking throughout, your pan is too hot. Decrease the heat so that the pan isn’t smoking and cook for a longer time until cooked through.
These pancakes will last 3 days in the fridge, or you can pre-make the batter ahead of time and cook fresh in the morning! Freezer friendly for up to 3 months.
