Mango Pancakes!

It’s one of my favorite breakfasts.

  • 1/4 cup oats, mixed with enough water to moisten well
  • pinch salt and a pinch baking soda
  • one egg
  • chopped mangoes

Mix it all up, melt some butter in the pan, and cook until firm. You don’t even need any syrup because the fruit is sweet.

You  can use any fruit and some, like bananas, are nice with a bit of cinnamon also added. I have bananas and plantains from our yard in the freezer, and also bags of mangoes that I picked up when they were in season.

One good reason to ride a bike is to learn where to find all the good fruit trees. If fruit is falling on the ground or street and nobody is using it, I’ll pick it up. I’ve also had people tell me that I am welcome to pick up fruit in their yard anytime.

I especially love the mangoes! I know some excellent trees that drop lots of fruit when it’s season. Anything I can’t eat gets skinned and sliced up, and put in the freezer so I can have mangoes all year long.

I never saw mango trees like these either. Many are huge and said to be over 100 years old! They do very well in this climate where it never freezes and I really appreciate them for their beauty as well as the delicious fruit.

  1. That looks like a great recipe Kris. I will put that on my list to try.
    I should be back in Panama, David, by Nov 1 if all goes according to plans.
    Looking forward to seeing you again.

    Thanks for the pancake receipe. Are you using instant oats or old fashion kind?


  3. I’d be interested to give this a whirl. I don’t care much for mangos but recently I tried mango salsa and it changed my life forever. It is the PERFECT amount of sweet and heat with some salty. All the best flavors in 1! 🙂


  4. Great recipe and easy to make with any kind of fruit. AS mangoes need a passport to get into the US, I’ll probably make this with some of our wonderful Pacific Northwest berries. Oatmeal pancakes have always been a favorite of mine. Be well Kris, Alia

    PS — Those old mango trees are magnificent!


    • When I’m in your area I go for the berries too, blueberries, strawberries, and last time cherries were in season and I love them. Every area has its good fruit to enjoy and most of them would probably taste wonderful in pancakes.
