Everyone loves pancakes and these fluffy buttermilk versions have a healthy twist with added banana for sweetness. Perfect for breakfast, serve these banana pancakes on their own for a healthy start to the day, or with a little natural yogurt and maple syrup if liked. 

  1. Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl and stir in the sugar. Whisk together the buttermilk, orange juice and eggs. Pour the buttermilk mixture into the flour and whisk until smooth. Stir in the diced banana.
  2. Heat the butter and olive oil together in a frying pan and add 1 ½ tablespoons of the batter for each pancake. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until golden and then carefully turn over and cook for a further 1-2 minutes. Serve warm, drizzled with a little maple syrup and a dollop of natural yogurt if liked.
