Mrs Green's strawberry and banana pancakes recipe

zero waste week use it upAre you managing to avoid food waste, despite soaring temperatures?

It hasn’t been below 27 degrees for about 10 days now, and I don’t know about you, but I’ve been noticing just how much quicker fresh foods are going off.

Bananas that would once last a week are brown after three days.

Fortunately I created a cunning recipe that uses up an old banana and you can decorate with any fruit you have lying around.

As I had moudly strawberries heading off to the compost bin last week, I didn’t want to have history repeat itself, so I used strawberries on mine.

Here goes with

Mrs Green’s strawberry and banana pancakes recipe


  • 1 very brown, soft banana
  • 2 eggs
  • Topping of your choice – I used:
  • couple of tablespoons of cream, whipped
  • few strawberries, sliced
  • A handful of oats, toasted in a little butter
  • Some chocolate sauce


  • Beat together the mushy banana and eggs until thoroughly combined
  • Heat a frying pan and add a dash of bland oil such as sunflower to coat the pan
  • Drop a couple of tablespoons of the pancake mix into the frying pan and cook on one side
  • Flip and cook the other side (these take longer than regular pancakes)
  • Slip onto a plate and assemble the toppings.
  • I did a layer of whipped cream, some sliced strawberries, topped with toasted oats and a squirt of chocolate sauce

This mix made 4 small to medium sized pancakes
