Climbing Food // Super Duper no-wheat pancake

Climbing Food // Super Duper no-wheat pancake

No Wheat PancakesWhen Rebecca Dent, GB Junior Climbing Team Assistant Manager and high Performance Nutritionist, told me about this recipe I have to confess that I was unsure, but I will give anything a go once and this one has grown on me considerably.  It’s so flexible – you can add virtually anything to it to give it a different texture or flavour.  It can be sweet or savoury, which is great if you’re in a rush and need quick healthy protein.


2 eggs

1 banana

What to do

  • Mash the banana well in a bowl
  • Break the eggs into the bowl and mix everything together
  • Heat some oil (or butter) in a frying pan and pour in the mix
  • Cook over a medium low heat, for 5-10 mins, until the banana-egg pancake is cooked through


You can add all sorts of things to this basic mix to change the flavours.  Here are some ideas from Rebecca:

  • Raisins
  • Healthy Chocolate Spread
  • Nuts – Brazils, Pecans, Almonds
  • Peanut Butter
  • Almond Butter
  • Spices – nutmeg, mixed spice, cinnamon
  • Maple syrup
