I am all about minimal dishes, which is somewhat ironic since I don’t really do the dishes around here. I’m the sole cook in this family (for good reason) and C is the sole dish washer (not for good reason but simply because I ain’t cooking and cleaning too). And even though I’m not the dish washer I still like to be considerate of him and keep the dishes to a minimum.

That’s why I love these Blender Banana Oatmeal Pancakes. You just through everything into the blender, and then pour right into a pan. Doesn’t get more simple than that. A delicious meal and all parties are happy!

What You Need for Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

  • Rolled Oats – quick or regular just NOT steel-cut!
  • Baking Powder
  • Cinnamon
  • Bananas – make sure they’re nice and ripe!
  • Maple Syrup
  • Large Egg
  • Almond Milk – or any kind of dairy or non-dairy milk
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Coconut oil – for cooking. You can also sub in butter.
  • Optional add-ins – chocolate chips, mixed berries, nuts

What makes these pancakes healthy?

I’m a true believer that pancakes can taste indulgent even when they’re made from healthier ingredients. Plus it just leaves more room for loading on the maple syrup and toppings! But let’s just about what makes these banana oatmeal pancakes healthy:

– Oat flour – If you’ve never subbed regular flour for oat flour, you’re in for a treat. Not only is oat flour a fantastic source of fiber and plant-protein, but it also adds a delicious nuttiness and sweetness to the recipe. You can purchase pre-bought oat flour but to be honest, I would just save the money and add regular rolled oats to the blender to grind them before adding the rest of your pancake ingredients.

-Banana – This recipe is sweetened entirely with a banana and just 1 tbsp of maple syrup. No need to add any refined sugar. I love topping these banana oat pancakes with extra banana and some nuts for more delicious flavor

Do you have to make these oat pancakes in the blender?

Nope! If you have pre-bought oat flour you can avoid the blender entirely. You will want to mash up your banana before adding to your pancake batter but otherwise you can mix everything together in a bowl and then add directly to your skillet. I just like making these pancakes in the blender for easy clean-up!

Tips For Making These Banana Oatmeal Pancakes:

-the key is to use regular rolled oats (quick cook will work too!) just stay away from steel-cut oats for this recipe
-blend everything together as if you were making a smoothie – *This is the blender I use*
-add coconut oil to a pan and then pour batter directly from the blender into the pan to cook
-pancakes are ready to be flipped once all the air bubbles have popped
-enjoy with toppings of choice! add more bananas, nuts, other fruit and of course, maple syrup!

    Love these! My favourite recipe on your blog since the chocolate avocado muffins. Made them for a birthday breakfast for my boyfriend this past weekend then he proceeded to make them on his own initiative every morning until we ran out of bananas:) Added chocolate chips and walnuts which made them wonderfully decadent.

    Preach!

    It would be sad to go on vacation and NOT enjoy some delicious food, especially regional foods you can’t get elsewhere (or at least not decent versions of them). My boyfriend is actually in NOLA right now – do you think if I asked him to bring me back a beignet it would survive the plane trip? πŸ˜‰ Haha.

    Thanks for this Davida- was feeling sick physically and sick with guilt this morning for my overindulgence with cheesecake last night. Sometimes I think it’s the guilt and thoughts that cause more pain than the actual food. One day out of the week and I eat healthy usually. These reminders are so great! Balance is key and one of my goals for this year!

    These looks fantastic! I live in Baton Rouge and am heading to NOLA for Mardi Gras this weekend with some visiting girlfriends – I want to make these one morning to get our healthiness on before diving off the deep end in terms of food. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the recipe!

    Hi Davida, these amazing! I do almost the same since a long time and I have to say I love the oatmeal instead of normal flour being used in the pancakes. They are much more healthier. I must admit I did not try them with the coconut oil yet which I use now for baking, but this is definitely a must do, thanks for the idea! Have a nice day, cheers!
