Fedhealth Dream Chasers dietician Andrea du Plessis shares these healthy breakfast recipes featuring oats.


Banana Pancakes filled with Berries

Serves 1 to 2



2 eggs

1 large ripe banana

2 tbsp finely ground almond meal (or any flour)

2 tbsp muesli

1 tsp baking powder

¼ tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla



Fresh fruit like berries and banana slices

Vanilla custard

Lime zest, optional

Peanut sprinkle, optional


Place eggs, banana, flour, muesli, baking powder, cinnamon and vanilla in a blender and blend until smooth. Heat a non-stick pan – lightly spray with non-stick spray. Pour batter into hot, non-stick pan. Flip pancakes when they’ve puffed slightly, are bubbling, and set on the edges. Let pancakes cool (to the touch but still warm) on a plate, so they will fold without breaking and you can hold them to eat. Fill pancakes with fruit, top with whipped custard, lime zest and enjoy! You can also add a little sprinkling of peanuts.
