- Ground oatmeal (you can grind regular oats in a blender)

- Ripe banana (the riper, the more pronounced the banana flavor)
- Brown sugar or preferred sweetener (stevia, honey, white sugar, etc.)
- Ground cinnamon
- Vanilla extract
- Baking powder
- Maple syrup, honey, jam, nuts, chopped fruit, etc.
How to make Blender Banana Oat Pancakes
To make this recipe, you’ll need a blender to mix all the ingredients. You can mix them by hand if you want, but I find that using a blender is easier and the batter is smoother.
Start by adding the ground oats, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt to the blender container.
Then add the milk, vanilla, egg, and banana to the dry ingredients.
Blend all the ingredients until the mixture is smooth and without any lumps.
In a nonstick skillet, over medium heat, melt butter or heat vegetable oil. I prefer to use butter because it gives the pancakes that special banana bread flavor, but you can still use a neutral-flavored oil like canola or vegetable oil.
Here’s my favorite skillet for pancakes, since the mixture doesn’t stick or burn, and the pancakes come out perfectly golden brown:
Once the skillet is hot, add pancake batter, using 2 tablespoons per pancake. Enjoy the delicious aroma as they cook! Flip them over when they are cooked and golden on each side.
Serve with maple syrup, honey, jam, chopped fruit, or nuts if desired.
I am a huge fan of meal planning. These pancakes can be made ahead of time and frozen for future meals. To reheat, simply place the frozen pancakes in the microwave for a few seconds.
These healthy banana oat pancakes are delicious and nutritious, but did you know they also have many health benefits?
Oatmeal and banana pancakes are rich in fiber, which helps support digestion. They are also a good source of vitamins and minerals, such as potassium, which is essential for good heart health (1).
Around 1-2 pancakes is a good portion for breakfast. This recipe makes 4, which yields 2-4 servings.
They can be eaten with maple syrup, honey, chopped fruits and nuts, with yogurt on top, or on their own!
