Have you ever woken up on a Sunday morning with a craving for pancakes, but you didn’t have any flour? Maybe you’re just on a gluten free diet, or just trying to eat healthier, so you’re avoiding flour. Perhaps your bananas have turned brown and you need an idea to use them rather than throw them out. If you can relate to any of these, this banana oatmeal pancake recipe may be for you.
Although this recipe is gluten free, its not vegan, or dairy free. I’m sure you can make adjustments by using non dairy ingredients though. However, there are eggs and I’m not sure how you can really change that aspect. So, sorry vegan friends! 😢
Although this may not necessarily be the healthiest creation, in some ways it’s a healthier-ish alternative. I mean, there’s no flour and there are bananas in the batter, so that must count for something!
Regardless, these pancakes will keep you satisfied and also have your tastebuds jumping for joy! Also, you’ll have great energy for your day!
* This recipe was enough for two adults and three kids with some leftover. So you may want to cut measurements in half if you don’t want a bunch left over.
2 cups rolled oats
4 small bananas
2 tablespoons honey
2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 cups Greek yogurt
1 1/2 cups milk (your choice- I used almond milk)
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
Mash bananas. Add milk, eggs, yogurt, honey and mix.
Add oats to food processor and blend into a flour. Mix in the cinnamon and baking powder.
Combine the wet and dry ingredients and bam! You have your batter.
Heat the pan or skillet using butter, non stick spray, or ghee if you wish. Pour batter onto pan once it’s completely coated.
The Pancakes are ready to flip when the edges look cooked, and there are bubbles on the top. If you don’t see bubbles, just make sure the bottom is cooked well before turning over. If they are flipped over too soon they could fall apart.
Hopefully you don’t have trouble flipping them. It isn’t easy so just take your time, flip them slowly and believe in yourself.
Serve with some berries and honey on top, or syrup. Although this doesn’t replace the traditional pancake, it definitely holds its own!
