Serving size

Makes about 24 flapjacks
Serves 6


  • 1 cup (250 ml) uncooked ordinary oats
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) baking powder
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) ground cinnamon
  • 2 medium-large ripe bananas, mashed
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 50 ml plain low-fat yoghurt
  • olive oil for frying
  • peanut butter, unsalted nuts, more fresh banana, honey and finely grated lemon rind for serving


  1. Place the oats in a bowl and blend with a stick blender until it forms a fine flour. Add the baking powder and cinnamon.
  2. Mix the bananas with the oat flour until it forms a thick paste.
  3. Add the eggs and yoghurt and mix to form a batter. Take care not to overmix.
  4. Heat a large frying pan over a medium temperature and add a thin layer of oil. Drop spoonfuls (about 30 ml each) of batter into the pan. Fry for a few minutes on the one side until golden brown.
  5. Turn over and fry until cooked and golden brown on the other side. Keep warm and repeat with the remaining batter. Add more oil in a thin layer as needed.
  6. Serve four flapjacks as a portion. Enjoy with toppings of your choice from the list above. These flapjacks are also delicious with dollops of plain low-fat yoghurt, other seasonal fruit, or a thin slice of cheese.


  1. This recipe is a great way to use overripe bananas.
