Building a better breakfast one delicious bite at a time, these blender banana oatmeal pancakes are a go-to on busy nights and lazy weekends! (Gluten-free, dairy-free!)
- 2 cups rolled oats (use certified gluten free, if GF)
- 2 ripe bananas
- 2/3–1 cup almond milk
- 1 egg
- 1 Tbsp pure maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt
- coconut oil, butter, or ghee for greasing your skillet
- Place the oats in the blender and puree until the oats have turned into a fine flour.
- Scrape down the edges to loosen up the flour, then add bananas, 2/3 cup milk, egg, syrup, vanilla, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
- Cover and blend a few seconds to combine, stopping to scrape down the edges, as needed.
- Allow mixture to rest while you heat up your skillet. (It will thicken slightly here as the oat flour absorbs some of the liquid.)
- Heat a skillet over medium heat and grease with a little bit of coconut oil (or butter or ghee). Pour 1/4 cup of batter per pancake onto the skillet and cook 3-4 minutes, or until bubbles form on the top. Flip pancakes and cook an additional 1-3 minutes, or until golden on the outside and set on the inside. Repeat with remaining batter.
- (If your mixture seems too thick, you may need to add milk 1-2 Tbsp. at a time to loosen up the batter.)
VARIATIONS: Add in chocolate chips, frozen or fresh blueberries, grated apple or chopped nuts to the batter.
MY PANCAKES SEEM TOO THICK–HELP! This can totally happen with oat flour pancakes. Just add an additional splash of milk–1-2 Tbsp. of milk at a time–until you’ve reached a consistency that works better for you. (That’s why the milk amount is provided in a range. Depending on the size of your bananas you may need slightly more or less milk.)
MY PANCAKES ARE BROWNING TOO QUICKLY–WHAT DO I DO? The natural sugars in bananas and the oats both tend to brown with heat. (It’s totally normal!) But if you find the outsides are browning before the insides are set, just turn down the temperature on the stove a bit.
MY PANCAKES ARE TOO THIN–WHAT DO I DO? You can add additional oat flour (or gluten-free flour/white flour) 1 Tbsp. at a time until you reach a consistency that works better for you.
