How to Make Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

  1. Make Oat Flour: add rolled oats to a high-speed blender or food processor for 1-2 minutes to create an oat flour texture.
  2. Blend: add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth.
  3. Cook: Pour 1/4 cup of the batter on a hot griddle or skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes, until the sides are set and top starts to bubble. Carefully flip them and finish cooking for 1-2 minutes on the other side.

A few of my favorite toppings include cashew butter, almond butter, almonds, walnuts, extra bananas, blueberries, chocolate chips, or maple syrup. Get fancy and use the blueberry syrup in our coconut flour pancakes recipe or try delicious strawberry compote in the spring.

If you make a double batch on the weekends just place them in an air tight container or plastic bag and take them on the road with you to work for breakfast or a pre-workout snack.

How to store them in the fridge: allow them to cool completely then store them in an air tight container, plastic bag or silicone stashr bag until you’re ready to eat.

How to store them in the freezer: allow them to cool completely then store them in an air tight container, plastic bag or silicone stashr bag until you’re ready to eat. Pro tip: store them 1-2 at a time so you can warm up individual pancakes when you’re ready.

How to reheat banana oatmeal pancakes: warm them up in the microwave in 30 second increments until warm. If they’re frozen, allow them to thaw overnight in the fridge.

Notes

Pancake Consistency: If you like your pancakes thicker add 1/4 cup more oats and if you like them thinner add 2-3 tablespoons more of dairy-free milk.
Make them waffles: add 1 tablespoon of extra butter or coconut oil to the batter and use a waffle iron to cook them until golden and crispy.
 
Storage: Allow the oat flour pancakes to cool to room temperature, and store them in an airtight container or ziplock bag in the fridge for up to 4 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Warm in the microwave, toaster, or oven.

    Best gluten free pancakes I’ve ever had. My husband didn’t even realize they were gluten free. I could not wait to eat the leftovers the next day. I love the banana taste and the moistness. I added sliced bananas and walnuts on top with a sprinkle of coconut and a little real maple syrup!

    These pancakes are the best! The only recipe we use now. My kids love them with chocolate chips and even come back later to eat the cold left overs, if there are any.
    Thank you for this healthy, delicious recipe!

    I’ve been making these for at least 3 years. We love this recipe in our house! Another addition to the recipe is I add 1 to 2 Tbsp of hemp hearts to make it higher in protein.
