Overnight oats


This recipe is great if you don’t have time to make, sit and eat your breakfast in the morning, you can simply make this the night before and enjoy it in the morning on your way to work, school or wherever you need to go. I used a 350ml jar; you may need to increase the ingredients if you have a bigger jar. You can try different fruits if you don’t like apples, however I tried this with bananas and I didn’t like it at all (I love bananas by the way but it just didn’t work for this recipe for me).

Spicy Banana Pancakes



  1. ½ cup flour
  2. ½ cup milk
  3. 1 large egg
  4. ¼ butter, melted
  5. 1 tablespoon sugar(optional)
  6. 1 large banana, sliced
  7. ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  8. ½ ground ginger
  9. Jam to serve




  1. In a bowl, mix the flour, milk, egg, butter and sugar.
  2. Add the spices and mix.
  3.  Add the banana slices and mix, spreading it evenly throughout the batter.
  4. Heat a non-stick frying pan and grease with a little bit of butter if necessary.
  5. When the pan is hot, pour about 1/3 of the batter into the pan for each pancake and cook until golden brown.
  6. Serve with Jam.


I went a bit crazy on the jam as usual…this is the reason why the sugar is optional.
