How to make banana oat pancakes
Preparing these vegan pancakes couldn't be simpler. Simply blend some oats into oat flour and mix with baking powder (photo 1). Then add the dry ingredients: dairy-free milk and mashed banana (photo 2).
Tip: I like to blend the banana to make the batter extra creamy!
Next, cook your pancakes in a pan with a little oil until golden. Then stack 'em high and enjoy with your favourite toppings!
Pancake topping ideas
The best part about pancakes? All the delicious toppings! Here are a few ways to enjoy your morning stack:
- Fresh blueberries, fat-free yoghurt, & honey
- Homemade pistachio almond butter, banana & white chocolate chips
- Fresh raspberries, chocolate sauce & cacao nibs
What's your favourite? Let me know in the comments below!
Yes! Both cow milks and dairy-free milks will work in this recipe, with the exception of canned coconut milk (which is too thick).
Wait for small bubbles to appear and the edges to go slightly dry and matte in appearance. Then your pancake is ready to flip!
Make sure you grease your frying pan with a little oil before adding the pancake batter. I love using spray oil!
Storage and reheating
These pancakes can be prepared ahead of time and stored in the fridge sans toppings for 2 days or in the freezer for up to 2 weeks. You can reheat them in the microwave or, my personal favourite, in the toaster!

Could I replace the bananas with something like apple sauce? I'm not a big fan of the taste of bananas.
I suspect that 1/4 cup applesauce would be fine instead of one banana, but I have not tested it myself. Do let me know how it goes!
