Banana and Oats Pancake


Title tak mengagak, nak nama glemer je.. Walhal orang kampung panggil lempeng pisang je.. Hehe.. This was yesterday's breakfast. Alkisah, ada banyak pisang yang masak ranum.. Rezeki, jiran yang baik hati bagi.. Hajat di hati nak goreng, buat minum petang, tapi asyiklah terlupa.. Sedar-sedar, dah nak lembik dah pisang tu.. Kalau dibiar lama, masuk tong juga nanti.. Kasihan pula, lagipun tak baik buang rezeki orang bagi..

Fikir punya fikir, akhirnya mendapat inspirasi untuk membuat lempeng.. So, sajalah google resepi tu, eh ada pulak keluar result lempeng pisang oats.. Wah, ini sudah bagus.. Oats pun ada banyak lagi dalam pantry.. Hehe, I don't know about you guys out there but I always have this tendency to buy oats dengan harapan nak tukar gaya hidup.. Konon breakfast dengan oats, hidup sihat bla bla bla.... Beli tak mengagak pulak tu, paket besar terus.. Dapat 2-3 kali makan oats pepagi, semangat hidup sihat pun mulai kelam dan pudar, maka oats tersimpan kemas dan rapi je dalam pantry.. Haha.. So, when one finds a recipe to use up the oats, one eagerly jumps on the idea of trying it out..

So, here goes.. Recipe is from the famous food blogger, CMGebu of DTS.. Dia pun ambil dan olah resepi ni dari orang lain.. I pulak derhaka lagi pada resepi yang telah diderhakakan.. Memang layak dibuang negeri.. Haha.. So, ini versi double derhaka, guna apa yang ada di dapur aje..


250 gms ripe bananas, mashed
200 ml fresh milk
1 cup quaker oats
2-3 tbsp self-raising flour
1-2 tbsp brown sugar, *optional
a pinch of salt
A bit of butter

  1. Combine all ingredients except butter. Taste for salt.
  2. Put it aside and let it rest for about 5 minutes so that the batter would thicken up just a bit.
  3. Heat a non-stick pan on medium high heat and just dribble with some butter, or you can just take a clean paper towel, dip in a bit of good vegetable oil and just slightly oil the pan. Or, you can just spray the pan with one of those oil-in-aerosol can-thingy.
  4. Ladle in the batter into the pan. You might want to level it with a spatula or spoon cuz the batter is kinda sticky. So, about 2-3 minutes on the first side, flip it and another minute or so on the other side. Well, basically you just want to make sure your pancake is well cooked.
  5. Repeat step 3 & 4 for the remaining batter.
  6. Serve with butter and maple syrup or honey if desired. A dollop of nutella would be a nice companion too.. Best served warm.
A healthy, delicious meal in the morning.. Happy cooking!
