Win Mother’s Day With These 2-Minute Peanut Butter Oat Pancakes

One thing that’s pretty synonymous with Mother’s Day is the idea of breakfast in bed. If you want to be a good child and impress your wonderful mum by whipping up a tasty meal, but don’t have much skill in the kitchen, this here is a failsafe option for you. And it only takes two minutes to pull together, too.

Dietician Susie Burrell has shared her “healthier” take on pancakes, and it sounds like a seriously delicious combo of flavours if you ask this hungry gal.

The recipe combines peanut butter, oats and bananas – yum. Your mother is bound to be impressed, and you’re promised a delicious meal at the end of all your (kind of) hard work, too.

Sounds like a pretty epic way of landing yourself the title of favourite child, if you ask me. Anyway, let’s dig into the pancake-making, shall we? Check out the pancake recipe below.

How to make Peanut Butter Oat Pancakes

What you’ll need:

  • ½ cup flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ cup oats
  • ½ cup Mayver’s 100% Smooth Peanut Butter
  • ½ cup milk
  • Oil for cooking
  • ½ banana, mashed and ½ to serve


  1. Combine dry ingredients well, before adding the wet ingredients.
  2. Combine until moist batter is formed.
  3. Over a hot pan, spoon 2-3 tbsp. of the mixture and cook each side for 1-2 mins.
  4. Serve with banana and drizzle with a syrup of your choice

Step five, eat until a nap is required. Seeing as this recipe is a dietician’s take on pancakes, I’m going to go ahead and assume it’s fine to snack on these babies on the daily.
