  • 4 free-range eggs
  • 4 bananas, roughly chopped
  • oil
  • 1⁄3 cup condensed milk, for serving (optional)
  • 1 lemon, juiced, for serving (optional)

Whisk the eggs, then add the chopped bananas. Blend until smooth using a hand-blender.

Heat a large frying pan over medium heat, then spray the pan with cooking spray.

Ladle the banana mixture into the hot pan to form a round flapjack. Fry for 2–3 minutes, then turn over and cook the other side. Repeat with the remaining batter, spraying the pan with cooking spray before frying each flapjack.

Drizzle with condensed milk, if using, and lemon juice before serving.

Cook's tip: These flapjacks are very delicate - turn with care! A good non-stick pan helps. Another top tip is to make them quite small. You can hide all sorts of veggies in them. Blitz in a handful of chopped sweetcorn, baby marrows or some baby spinach leaves.

    I love making these for my two-year old granddaughter (and for myself, I must confess!!). They’re a real winner. I don’t use the condensed milk though as it’s got far too much sugar on top of the banana which already has the equivalent of 6 teaspoons of sugar! Not encouraging my granddaughter to have so much sugar.

    I used coconut oil for frying.

    These were so good! Added 1 teaspoon of each baking powder and vanilla extract. Served with sugar free “vanilla sugar” by sweetly and a dollop of yogurt.

    Just tried this, and also didn’t work for me. Very runny batter, and could not get it to brown unless I stood over it the whole time. So also had banana favored scrambled eggs. As it is lock down, I am trying to be adventurous!

      Hi Yvette,
      Thanks for your comment. We’re sorry they didn’t work for you! They are certainly very flimsy, and need to be turned with care.

    This didn’t turn out well for me. It seems like it needed more banana as it was very runny with the 1:1 ratio of banana and egg. Which meant I ended up eating somewhat of a banana-flavoured scrambled egg dish, instead of banana-flavoured flapjacks.

    Tried this healthy alternative over the weekend. It was a real treat and my 2 little ones loved it :) Healthy and tasty.
