I love the combination of Banana and Oats, it tastes delicious and they’re also very nutritious as well as quite filling.
I have made these multiple times experimenting with different recipes. However this one remains my favourite due to it’s natural sweetness and soft, fluffy texture.
It is essential to use ripe bananas for this since they tend to be sweeter and bananas are the sole sweetener in this pancake batter. The binding of this batter is also really good due to a couple tablespoons of all-purpose flour mixed in, you can feel free to skip it but I’d recommend adding it for a better texture.
These healthier Banana Oatmeal pancakes are made quickly using just a blender and a frying pan.
You can traditionally mash the bananas in a mixing bowl and just mix in all the ingredients into the bowl to make the batter. But I’d prefer the blender option, only because it’s lesser chores and quicker.
I’ve been receiving many requests lately for the recipe of these pancakes and I am finally sharing it here. I hope you all like it and enjoy these with your favourite toppings. You can also check out the recipe for my regular pancakes here.
Banana Oatmeal PancakesCourse: BreakfastDifficulty: Easy
2 ripe bananas
1 cup milk
3 Tbsp coconut oil (or any other vegetable/nut based oil)
1 Tsp vanilla extract
1 Tsp baking powder
1 Tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups oat flour
2 Tbsp all-purpose flour (optional: it helps with binding)
Salt, to taste
Toppings: Maple syrup, Honey, Chocolate, Fruits, Nuts or nut butter etc.
- In a good quality blender, add the bananas along with the egg, milk, coconut oil and vanilla extract. Blend until smooth.
- Add in all the rest of the dry ingredients; baking powder, baking soda, oat flour, all purpose flour and salt. Pulse until combined.
- In a preheated, greased frying pan on medium flame, pour approximately 1/4 cup of the batter. Once it forms a few bubbles on top, flip the pancake and let it cook all the way through until it’s golden brown on both sides.
