How To Make Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

  • Add all of the ingredients to a blender or food processor. Blend on high until completely smooth. (photos 1-3)
  • Let the batter rest for 5 minutes. This allows the oats to soften and the pancake batter to thicken. (photo 4)
  • Heat a griddle or skillet to medium heat. Once warmed, grease with cooking spray, oil, or butter. I use gluten-free coconut cooking spray.
  • Scoop the batter into a greased ¼ cup measuring cup and pour the batter onto the greased griddle or skillet. (photo 5)
  • Cook the pancakes for 2-3 minutes. Once the pancakes puff up and start to lightly bubble, flip the pancakes and cook for another 2-3 minutes. If you find that pancakes are browning too quickly, lower the heat. If your griddle starts smoking, it means your pan is too hot. (photo 6)
  • Repeat with the remaining pancake batter adding a little more cooking oil or butter to the pan between batches as needed.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
