Quick Banana & Oat Flapjacks

Who doesn’t love flapjacks? These heavenly flapjacks, taken from the “Cooking from the Heart: DASH Edition Cookbook” courtesy of Pharma Dynamics, can be made in no time and are perfect for breakfast or even a lunch box.

Don’t shy away from being creative with wholesome toppings of your choice. You can include peanut butter, banana, and unsalted nuts. If that’s not enough, this recipe is even great for little ones starting to eat solids.


  • 1 cup (250 ml) of uncooked ordinary oats 
  • 2 medium-large ripe bananas, mashed 3 eggs, beaten 
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) baking powder 
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) ground cinnamon
  • 50 ml plain low-fat yogurt 
  • olive oil for frying
  • peanut butter, unsalted nuts, and 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 fine flour. Add the baking powder and cinnamon. 
  2. Mix the bananas with the oat flour until it creates a thick paste. 
  3. Add the eggs and yogurt and mix to create a batter. Make sure not to over-mix.
  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 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 toppings of your choice from the list above. These flapjacks are also delicious with dollops of plain low-fat yogurt, other seasonal fruit, or a thin slice of cheese.
