It is October, so fall is officially upon us.
I know, in the UK we’re not ‘officially’ allowed to call autumn ‘fall’ but to me, there is something rather alluring about it.
Being a student it is so easy to fall into bad eating habits because you’re in control of what and when you eat. Of course, we all have those days when we eat five out of six of a hula-hoop multi-pack or its half midnight, having not of have eaten anything all day and you’re standing in your kitchen eating sweetcorn out of the tin.
My three ingredient pancakes are the perfect winter warmer as it requires so little ingredients which I can guarantee you will have in your cupboards!
This is the start of a series I will be doing throughout the fall/winter because eating healthy and on a budget should not compromise taste!
I took inspiration from this recipe from ‘Everything Miranda Kerr Eats In A Day’ for Harper Bazaar and from YouTuber, Holly Gabrielle’s pancake recipe.
I love eating healthy food but I love eating ‘treat food’ – so this is a happy medium for when you’re craving pancakes for brunch!

3/4 ripe banana
Milk (or milk alternative)
You can use whatever you like or have in the cupboard

To tell you the truth I did not really use measurements at-all because I don’t really cook like that. Of course, it is good to follow a recipe from time to time but I think people (especially if you are a student like myself) ‘wing it’ most of the time.
I used a Nutribullet to blend all of this together but any blender equivalent will do; simply weigh out your oats (roughly a 3/4 cup per person), your banana and then 1/2 cup of milk and blend. I’m using almond milk here, just because I prefer it to cow’s milk but any milk you have will do!
The consistency of the mix should be like cake batter and there should be no lumps.
Then simply heat some oil in the pan (as you can see I used a little too much oil for my first one…) and put the mix in, you can make crêpe like ones, or in my case, smaller ones.
Make sure you cook them on a low heat so the middle is cooked through. As they contain banana for binding they will need a little bit longer in the pan to make sure they are cooked in the middle so make sure you accommodate for that.
