I always love finding new delicious and healthy recipes, especially for breakfast. I really only cook breakfast on the weekends, but I’m a huge fan of pancakes (see my Bacon Apple Pancakes or Pancakes with a Blueberry Peach Sauce). This super-simple banana oat pancakes recipe includes ingredients we usually have in the house — oats, almond milk, a banana, and some eggs. And you just blend everything in a blender to make the batter.
I woke up this morning after a long day of travel yesterday (to the Auburn game and back — sad face). I expected the pancakes to be a bit more difficult, but it took me all of about 20 minutes. Greg was about to workout and make himself some oatmeal, and I told him I had some pancakes for him. He said he didn’t want the flour and that he needed eggs and oats — he’s on a super-health kick. Anyways, these pancakes have NO flour and use oats as a base (not to mention there’s two eggs hidden up in there!) So he ended up going for the pancakes, and having over half the batch! He said they tasted like banana bread and LOVED ’em.
So there’s a few morning victories — he didn’t have to make breakfast, I got some new, beautiful blog content, and we had an amazing, healthy meal to start out this rainy Sunday.

I had to add a bit of maple syrup for sweetness, but you may top the pancakes with whatever sweetener you’d like. Honey, agave, or syrup would be wonderful, and the berries were the perfect addition. They brought it all together with a fresh, sweet flavor. Any mixed berries will do, but I used blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries.
I tried the batter before using, and added a bit of honey (about a tablespoon) for sweetness, but that is completely optional, because I think I have a high tolerance for sweet.. :)
- 1. Place almond milk, eggs, banana, vanilla extract, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and oats in a blender; cover. Blend until smooth.
- 2. Heat oil in nonstick skillet or flat-top over medium-low heat.
- 3. Pour 1/4 cup batter onto the skillet; cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until bubbles form around the edges of the pancake. Flip with spatula; cook for an additional 90 seconds.
- 4. Continue with the remaining batter.
- 5. Serve with fresh berries.
