Three-ingredient pancakes are perfect treat to make during lockdown


With the UK currently in its second week of lockdown and people asked not to go to the shop for anything non-essential, cooking something fun can be a bit of a challenge.

In a bid to combat this a number of simple store cupboard recipes have been doing the rounds online – from bread you can make in the slow cooker to a ‘magic’ cake made with water.

As well as these, there’s also a simple way you can make pancakes with just three ingredients.

All you need to whip up a slightly more exciting breakfast for you and the family is a banana, an egg and a handful of oats.

You can also substitute the egg for a splash of almond or oat milk to make the recipe vegan.

The pancakes are made with oats, an egg and a banana – but you can add whatever toppings you like

Model and entrepreneur Karlie Kloss shared her version of the pancakes on YouTube a few years ago and the video has recently resurfaced on social media.

In her tutorial she says: “One thing I love is pancakes and these aren’t just any old pancakes these are super easy to make, nutrient-rich, delicious pancakes, who doesn’t want that?

“It’s a super simple recipe, one egg, one banana and oats, you can’t mess it up.”

She goes on to demonstrate how to make them, starting with the banana Karlie explains it can be super ripe and doesn’t matter if it’s “mushy” as you’re going to mash it all up in a bowl.

The second step is to break your egg into the same bowl and mix it with the banana.

Then add a handful of oats into the mixture and stir.

At this point the 27-year-old explains there are a few optional add-ins you can include if you have them at home, such as vanilla essence and cinnamon.

“Cinnamon and bananas are just a match made in heaven,” she says.

Cooking tips and tricks

Once she’s added the extras, the next step is to heat some oil in a pan on the hob, you can use any type of oil, but Karlie prefers coconut oil.

Scoop out a spoonful of the mix into the pan and let it start to cook.

“If you make them small, they’re easier to flip,” adds Karlie, who also sprinkled some blueberries and chopped strawberries onto the batter as it was cooking, so that it bakes into the pancake.

Cook the pancakes for around two to three minutes on each side, then place on a plate and enjoy.

Top with maple syrup, chocolate sauce, ice cream, fruit or whatever you fancy, or eat as they are.
