  • Ingredients
    • 1 banana (roughly chopped)
    • 1 scoop (30g) vanilla protein powder
    • 1 egg
    • 25g rolled oats
    • 1 tbsp coconut oil full-fat Greek yoghurt
    • blueberries and raspberries - to serve.

1. Whizz up the banana, protein powder, egg and oats in a blender to make your batter.

2. Heat up half the coconut oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat.

3. Pour little puddles of batter into the pan – I usually get 3 pancakes, with about half the batter in the pan at once.

4. Cook for about 1 minute on each side.

5. Remove and repeat the process with the rest of the batter.

6. Serve with a dollop of yoghurt and a few berries.
