These Banana Oat Pancakes are a delicious way to start your day with simple healthy ingredients. This blender pancake recipe is so quick and easy you’ll want them every morning!
Growing up my dad used to make me banana pancakes almost every weekend. They were the traditional type made with white flour and many times (because he was lazy!) Bisquick.
My recipe for you today is a healthier spin on my favorite banana pancakes.
There is no need to add any sugar, the sweetness from the bananas is plenty to sweeten these flap jacks. In addition to being sugar free, these pancakes can also be made gluten free by using gluten free oats. They are a perfect choice for people who can’t eat gluten due to a sensitivity or allergy. You won’t believe how delicious these Banana Oat Pancakes are without any flour!
You can also make these healthy pancakes dairy free by using ghee or oil.
- Ripe bananas
- Quick cooking oats – if you only have old-fashioned rolled oats on hand, pulse them in a food processor or blender a few times to break them down a bit (not too much!) before measuring. Be sure you have the gluten free variety for a gluten free pancake.
- Vanilla extract
- Baking powder
- Butter (for the griddle) – use ghee or oil for dairy free pancakes.
How to Make Banana Oat Pancakes in a Blender
This recipe could not be any easier to put together on a busy morning. Just pop everything in your blender and hit the button!
- Place all the ingredients into a blender.
- Process the ingredients for 15 to 30 seconds or until the batter is smooth.
Add butter (or oil or ghee) to a large skillet or griddle, and heat to medium heat. Once hot, use a 1/4 cup scoop to pour the batter onto the pan/griddle. When the edges of the pancakes start to brown and the top of the batter starts to form bubbles, flip the pancakes and cook for an additional minute or until the pancake is golden brown on the bottom.
How to Serve Gluten Free Banana Pancakes
Banana Oat Pancakes are so delicious that you will enjoy eating them all on their own but they can also be paired with a wide variety of pancake toppings.
- Fresh fruit – add sliced bananas or top with your favorite berries!
- Whipped cream
- Maple syrup
- Chocolate chips
- Chopped nuts (pecans and walnuts are my favorite!)
