Low Salicylate Blender Pancakes

by | Apr 5, 2022 |

Sometimes I eat pancakes for lunch. They’re decadent, easy to whip up and leave minimal washing up; need I say more. What I love most is the effort to joy ratio. All these pancakes require is popping the ingredients into a blender, pressing the on button, pouring the batter into a heated frypan, a couple of flips here and there and bam you’ve got yourself a “me-time” meal. I enjoy my pancakes topped with dark chocolate, crunchy granola and maple syrup. Other topping ideas include a dollop of yogurt, poached pear, caramel sauce, cashew butter or even just a sprinkling of icing sugar.

Low Salicylate Blender Pancakes

Makes 8 pancakes



  • Cutting board and knife
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring spoons
  • Frypan
  • Blender
  • Storage container



1 large egg

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup greek yogurt

1 Tbsp sunflower oil (plus more for coating frypan)

1 Tbsp maple syrup (plus more for serving)

1 ripe banana (hello brown spots!)*

1 cup flour

1/2 cup oats

2 tsp baking powder

1/8 tsp salt

2 squares of dark chocolate (for serving – chopped into fine pieces)

Granola (for serving)



1.) Add all the ingredients to a blender (liquids first then dry ingredients) and blend on high until completely smooth. Set aside.

2.) Lightly coat frypan with oil and place over medium heat

3.) Once the frypan is warm, add 1/3 cup of the batter for each pancake (leaving a small gap between each to allow for expansion) and cook for 3 minutes or until pancakes puff up and start to bubble. Flip using a spatula and cook for a further minute until done.

4.) Stack pancakes on a plate and serve with a drizzle of maple syrup, a sprinkle of dark chocolate and a spoonful or two of crunchy granola.

5.) Leftover pancakes can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days. Just wrap in a paper towel and pop in the microwave to reheat

*While bananas have historically tested negligible for salicylates, more recent tests (Malaker et al. 2017) which retested with free and bound salicylates found bananas to be in the medium category. Most people tolerate bananas well, while others are prone to a reaction, in which case, omit bananas (swapping in 1 grated pear) in future if you do find you experience any adverse affects.
