  • 2 Ripe Medium Bananas
  • 1 tbsp All-Purpose Flour Plain Flour
  • ½ tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Egg Whole
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Essence if wanted
  • 20 Sprays Cooking Spray 1 Calorie Cooking Spray


  • In a large bowl, chop the bananas and mash them with a fork; you can leave some little bits of the fruit intact, as it is nice to find a bit of a bite while eating, however, if you do not like this, mash it thoroughly.
  • Once this is done, add the flour and baking powder and, always using the fork, mix them well in the banana.
  • At this point, add the egg and vanilla essence (if used, or another essence if preferred), and mix well until a smooth and uniform consistency is reached.
  • Warm-up a medium-sized frying pan on medium heat and apply a couple of cooking sprays to cover the pan; once this is warm (normally the spray is whitish-yellowish in color when cold and it goes transparent when warm) add some of the banana pancake batter. The pancake should be about 2mm thick when using three tablespoons in a medium pan.
  • Keep the pan on a low to medium flame and allow to cook for two to three minutes, then flip and cook for a further one to two minutes. Be gentle with the pancake: allow it to cook slowly and flip it with caution as it has very little flour, so it is moist and delicate – yet, the most delicious banana pancake you’ll ever have.
  • Continue doing so until you finish all the batter. Serve warm and enjoy!
