      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. Break in the bananas (approx. 3), weigh in the milk, add the eggs and a splash of vanilla.  Mix 20 seconds/speed 4

  2. Add flour, wheatgerm, salt and baking powder.  Stir 30 seconds (or until combined/speed 3

  3. Heat up two frying pans to medium heat (if you can, to speed up cooking time). 

  4. Add a spot of butter or coconut oil to the pan, and pour about 1/4 to 1/3 cup of batter and fry until some of bubbles remain open on top of the pancake. 

  5. Turn over and cook for another minute.  

  6. Store in a thermoserver until all are cooked. 

  7. Serve with maple syrup/a squeeze of lemon juice/fresh blueberries/slices of banana/fried bacon.



This recipe is enough for my husband, toddler and I.  We are big breakfast eaters.

Be careful to cook these on a medium heat, because the sugar in the banana burns easily.

Make the pancakes small so they turn easily without breaking.

Can be made dairy-free by substituting your favourite 'milk'.  My favourite is coconut milk.

Use 200g wholemeal flour if you have no wheatgerm, or just plain flour if you prefer.  

Freeze these in a stack with a small piece of baking paper between each one to make seperating them easier.

Perfect finger food for toddlers!
